Twenty-three people died in Norway, days after getting vaccinated with Pfizer Covid-19 first dose. 13 of them were nursing home patients and they reportedly died due to the side effects of the vaccine.
Weak and delicate patients are prone to common reactions like fever and nausea, according to a chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency. The 13 patients from the nursing home were at least 80 years old and this raises a question on who should be given the vaccine.
The Covid-19 vaccines Pfizer and Moderna appear to be having little risk, but the frail patients are an exception to that. A total of 29 people had side effects due to the vaccine and 13 of them died. Apart from the 13 patients, nine others had severe side effects like strong fever and allergic reactions, while seven others had less serious side effects.
In Norway, at least 30,000 people have received the Pfizer or Moderna’s first shot since last month.
