Thirty-three people who died after getting a Covid-19 vaccine in Norway were all over 75, seriously ill and there is no evidence of a ‘direct link’ between the jab and their deaths, health officials have said.
Norway’s medicine agency sought to reassure people on Monday after reports at the weekend showed a number of elderly people had died after getting the Pfizer jab.
‘All of these patients have had serious underlying illnesses,’ the agency’s medical director Steinar Madsen told Bloomberg, adding that they were all 75 or over.
‘Clearly Covid is far more dangerous to most patients than vaccination. We are not alarmed.’
