Twenty-three people died in Norway within days of receiving their first dose of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine, with 13 of those deaths — all nursing home patients — apparently related to the side effects of the shots, health officials said.

Common reactions to the vaccine, including fever and nausea, “may have contributed to a fatal outcome in some frail patients,” Sigurd Hortemo, chief physician at the Norwegian Medicines Agency, said in a Friday statement.

All 13 were nursing home patients and at least 80 years old. While officials aren’t expressing serious concern, they are adjusting their guidance on who should receive the vaccine.

The news comes just over a week after officials reported the deaths of just two nursing home residents after they received the Pfizer jab.

More than 30,000 people in Norway have received the first shot of the Pfizer or Moderna coronavirus vaccine in the Scandinavian country since late last month, according to official figures.

“We are not alarmed by this,” Steinar Madsen, medical director with the agency, told Norwegian broadcaster NRK. “It is quite clear that these vaccines have very little risk, with a small exception for the frailest patients.”

  2. “medical director”. is he a doctor? how can you be in the medical profession and have no empathy. oops. i have ran into several in my medical travails come to think of it, doctors can be pretty insensitive. maybe you have to lack a certain degree of empathy to work in the field of medicine. ive encountered lack of empathy a lot. a whole lot.

    • I think it’s a class privilege issue, nomad. As a woman, I’ve been patronized and condescended to by doctors (even female ones) my entire life. And I’ve heard the same complaint from my Black, Maori and senior citizen friends. I’m treated much better by alternative health providers (acupuncturists, naturopaths, etc). They make much more of an effort to communicate with me an understand what’s really going on.
