total of 23 people died after getting Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine in Norway, local health authorities said.

Most of the fatalities are elderly people aged 80 years or older who are admitted to nursing homes.

Twenty-nine people who received the vaccine suffered side effects, and 13 of the 23 people who died were found to be likely related to vaccination by autopsy.

"The minor side effects of vaccination can lead to fatal consequences for the vulnerable," said the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

However, he stressed that vaccinations should still be avoided by healthy young people.

Pfizer said he is cooperating with an investigation by Norwegian authorities and that "the death toll is not at a warning level at this time."

Domestic experts also say that it is very unusual that many countries have been vaccinated and the number of deaths occurred only in Norway, and that there is a high possibility of other causes of death.

Norway has approved the Pfizer and Modena vaccine and has so far inoculated 33,000 people.

In the U.S. and France, some people died after getting the corona vaccine, but the link between the vaccine and death has not been revealed.

According to Bloomberg, 37.9 million people have been vaccinated so far in 49 countries, but no collective side effects have been reported.
