In Norway, the authorities have received inquiries about 29 cases of side effects as a result of the corona vaccine. Of these, 13 are deaths.
All deaths have occurred among frail and elderly patients who had previously been hospitalized.
This is shown by the first report on side effects from the Norwegian Medicines Agency, the Norwegian Medicines Agency. It writes the Norwegian media NRK.
In total, more than 25,000 Norwegians have received the first injection of the corona vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech. The first vaccination was given at a nursing home in Oslo between Christmas and New Year.
“There are 13 deaths, nine serious side effects and seven less serious side effects,” says the agency’s medical director Steinar Madsen to NRK.
Among the patients who have passed away at some point after receiving the corona vaccine, none are under 80 years of age.
And several of them were over 90 years old, the agency said.
“It seems that some of these patients have had severe side effects in the form of fever and malaise, which could have made a very serious illness even more serious, and which may have led to death,” says Steinar Madsen.
Therefore, the Norwegian Medicines Agency has decided to change its recommendations on who should be vaccinated.
‘Doctors must carefully assess who needs to be vaccinated. Those who are very fragile and at the very end of their lives can not be vaccinated according to individual assessment, «says Steinar Madsen to NRK.
This is in line with a recommendation that the Norwegian National Board of Health, the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH), made earlier this week.
The Norwegian Medicines Agency emphasizes, however, that violent side effects and deaths are rare and that many thousands of fragile people have been vaccinated without side effects.
By fragile means the Norwegian Medicines Agency, among others, people with dementia, thrombosis and other serious diseases.
In Denmark, the Danish Medicines Agency has stated that two Danes have been found dead after being vaccinated against coronavirus.
In both cases, the agency has assessed that it is ‘less likely that there is a connection with the vaccine’.
One death was in a seriously ill citizen who died after a worsening of his illness. The second was a citizen of a “very old age,” who had already been weakened by old age.
