The German Paul Erich Institute is checking the deaths of ten people after being vaccinated with the Pfizer / BioNTech coronavirus drug, said Brigitte Keller-Stanislavsky, head of its drug and drug safety department.
According to her, experts proceed from the fact that there is no connection between incidents and vaccination.
In Germany, on December 27, vaccination with a drug from the American company Pfizer and the German startup BioNTech began. First of all, people over 80 years old, residents and workers of nursing homes, health workers are vaccinated. As of Thursday, 842 thousand people received the first vaccinations.
As Keller-Stanislavsky said at a press conference, until yesterday there were nine deaths, now experts must wait for data from Lower Saxony on another case.
“We are talking about very serious patients with numerous diseases who were undergoing palliative treatment (medical care aimed at alleviating the condition of terminally ill patients. – Ed.). I have already said that we are studying these cases. <…>
Based on the data we have to date, we proceed from the assumption that they died from major illnesses with a time coincidence with vaccination, ”she said.
The data are in line with the expected mortality rate in this age category as part of the vaccination campaign, she said. Those who died were from 79 to 93 years old, they had serious previous illnesses – they received the vaccine, since they were at risk for COVID-19. The interval between vaccinations and death ranged from several hours to four days.
Also, the Paul Erich Institute received information that six people had an anaphylactic reaction to the procedure.
In total, 325 cases of side effects are known so far, presumably associated with the vaccine, of which 51 are severe. This corresponds to a proportion of 0.53 cases of side effects and 0.08 cases of severe side effects per 1000 vaccinations. According to Keller-Stanislavsky, these data are in line with expectations and do not indicate risks, and also coincide with statistics on vaccinations in the United States.
