FACTS

    Thirty three people were reported to have died in Norway within days of receiving a first dose of the Pfizer Covid vaccine. All of the individuals were over the age of 75 and were patients in a nursing home. Thus far, 13 of the deaths have been investigated. Sigurd Hortemo, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, stated, “Based on these reports we cannot rule out that common adverse reactions, such as fever and nausea, may contribute to a more serious course and fatal outcome in some frail patients with severe underlying diseases.”

    “It’s reported that the deaths occurred in very frail patients who may have had only weeks or months to live, and that further investigation into these deaths will take place…We are closely monitoring this situation as well as the results of the vaccine rollout in other countries, including reported reactions and the overall safety profile of the vaccine.”

    RESPONSE

    Medical professionals have had differing opinions. Some say it is not a major concern: “We are not alarmed by this. It is quite clear that these vaccines have very little risk, with a small exception for the frailest patients,” stated Steinar Madsen, medical director of the Norwegian Medicines Agency. It was noted that, apart from any vaccine reactions, nearly 400 nursing home residents die each week, as is. Dr. Faheem Younus, the Chief of Infectious Diseases at the University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health, said it is “unlikely” that the vaccine caused the deaths, and that the current conclusion regarding the events is, “We don’t know, yet. Let science catch up.”

    However, others expressed more concern: “Norway has now reported 26 fatalities in conjunction with the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine. No other countries are reporting numbers like this. Is this a Norway problem or are other countries simply not tracking it as closely?” asked Dr. David Samadi, a board-certified urologist. According to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), a vaccine safety program co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there have been 66 deaths reported in the United States that may be connected to Covid vaccines. VAERS is said to only receive 1% of all vaccine-related injury reports.
