Norway: No evidence that 33 deaths related to Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine

As of January 18, local time, among the more than 48,000 people who received the COVID-19 vaccination in Norway, 33 people over the age of 75 had died after being vaccinated with the Pfizer-BioNtech n COVID-19 vaccine, triggering public concerns about vaccine safety issues. In this regard, the Norwegian health department stated that there is currently no evidence that the deaths of these elderly people are directly related to vaccination. But in the latest report, the health department recommends that the elderly and infirm people undergo medical evaluation before being vaccinated.

According to Euronews, the director of the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Camilla Stoltenberg (Camilla Stoltenberg) said that the 13 deceased in the recent investigation were all elderly, frail, and seriously ill. . “A very important fact is that 45 people die every day in medical institutions across Norway, so the claim that the death rate is too high or that it is related to vaccines is not valid.”

Bloomberg reported that Steinar Madsen, the medical director of the Norwegian Medicines Agency, also said on the 18th that it is difficult to prove the link between the vaccine and death. “For most people, the COVID-19 virus is dangerous. Much bigger than vaccination.”

Common side effects of vaccination include fever, nausea and diarrhea. For most people, these symptoms can be relieved in a short period of time, but for patients with serious underlying health problems, these side effects can be fatal. According to the “Washington Post” report, Madsen previously stated that the adverse reactions of young and healthy vaccinators after vaccination are usually not dangerous, but these adverse reactions may aggravate the underlying diseases of elderly vaccinators.

The Norwegian Institute of Health has updated the COVID-19 vaccination guidelines, recommending that the elderly and frail people receive additional medical evaluation before vaccination to prevent the vaccination from worsening the underlying disease.

According to the South China Morning Post, Jerome Kim, a public health expert and director of the International Vaccine Institute (IVI), said: “All reports on vaccine safety issues should be taken seriously, but (from Norway’s initial report was not enough to cause concern.”
