23 die in Norway after receiving first dose of Pfizer vaccine
OSLO – At least 23 people died in Norway within days of receiving their first dose of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine, health officials said Friday.
Results suggest that general side effects, like fever and nausea may have contributed to severe reactions in elderly people.
Thirteen of the deceased were nursing home patients and were around 80 years old.
Steinar Madsen, medical director said that it is quite clear that these vaccines have very little risk, with a small exception for some patients. The recent deaths are not an alarming situation to halt the mass vaccination program.
