▲ Norway being vaccinated against COVID-19

23 of those vaccinated against Corona 19 died in Norway, Bloomberg News reported.

They died shortly after being vaccinated against Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine, and most of them are known to be aged 80 or older who were admitted to nursing homes.

Authorities are investigating the exact cause of death. "Minor side effects of vaccination can lead to fatal consequences for the vulnerable," and advised elderly and terminally ill patients to avoid vaccination because the vaccine could be too dangerous.

According to the Associated Press and others, a survey by the Norwegian Medicines Agency reported that 29 people who received Pfizer's Corona 19 vaccine suffered side effects, and 13 out of 23 deaths after vaccination were identified as likely related to vaccination as a result of autopsy.

"The side effects of the vaccine were fever and nausea, and this side effect may have led to the death of some patients with old age," the Norwegian Medicines Agency explained.

In an e-mail statement, Pfizer said it is working with Norwegian authorities to investigate the cause of death and that "the number of incidents is not alarming at this time."

Norway approved the Pfizer vaccine and the Moderna vaccine last month, respectively, and so far, approximately 33,000 people have been vaccinated.
