Norway reports 23 deaths due to COVID-19 vaccine


Twenty-three deaths in Norway have been linked to Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 shots with 13 of the fatalities having side effects.

"The casualties were all among the “frail” — those with advanced heart conditions, dementia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and other serious diseases — old, aged at least 80 and some more than 90 years. Severe side effects like “fever and malaise” seem to affect some," Steinar Madsen, medical director of Norwegian Medicines Agency (NMA), said.

The two vaccines is not part of India’s countrywide vaccination drive, which is scheduled for January 16.
