Norway reported an alarming trend of 23 elderly people dying shortly after receiving the Covid-19 vaccine. Apart from the 23, several others have fallen ill soon after the vaccination, triggering Norway to launch a probe into the deaths.
Norway adjusted its advice on who can receive the COVID vaccine following deaths of 13 nursing home residents after getting the jab.
On similar frame, with the same vaccine type (Pfizer), Germany has provided approx 800,000 vaccinations and seen about 10 deaths.
Media reports of 29 elderly death on innoculation in Norway. Norway baffled on the safety of the corona vaccine made by US company Pfizer Inc as 29 elderly people died after being vaccinated.
“The latest figure adds six to the number of known fatalities in Norway, and lowers the age group thought to be affected to 75 from 80,” Bloomberg reported.
According to the report while it not yet clear when the deaths occurred, Norway has given at least one dose to about 42,000 people and its efforts have been focused on those considered most at risk if they contract the virus, including the elderly.
Until Friday, the vaccine produced by Pfizer and BioNTech SE was the only one available in Norway, and “all deaths are thus linked to this vaccine,” the Norwegian Medicines Agency said.
