|Norway 33 Elderly People Die Within Days Of Receiving First Covid19 Vaccine Dose by Blogger2021: 9:59am On Jan 19|
33 elderly people died in Norway within days of receiving their first dose of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine with the country's health officials saying there is no evidence of a 'direct link' between the jab and their deaths.
Common reactions to the vaccine, including fever and nausea, "may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients," said Sigurd Hortemo of the Norwegian Medicines Agency.
All 13 were nursing home patients and at least 80 years old.
Reactions to the vaccine, including fever and nausea, "may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients," New York Post quoted Sigurd Hortemo, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, as saying in a statement on Friday.
While officials aren't expressing serious concern, they are adjusting their guidance on who should receive the vaccine.
More than 30,000 people in Norway have received the first shot of the Pfizer or Moderna coronavirus vaccine since late last month.
Agency's medical director Steinar Madsen has stated that the "agency is not alarmed by this."
"It is quite clear that these vaccines have very little risk, with a small exception for the frailest patients. Doctors must now carefully consider who should be vaccinated. Those who are very frail and at the very end of life can be vaccinated after an individual assessment," he said.
"Regarding the cause of death there was no analysis," she also said.
"It is important to remember that on average about 45 people die every day at nursing homes in Norway, so it's not given that this represents any excess mortality or that they are related to the vaccines," she said.
