All fatal cases involving the vaccination against coronavirus in Norway reportedly involved people over 80 who whose health was “weak.” Norwegian authorities have announced that COVID-19 vaccines may be too risky for people past a certain age who are frail. The statement comes as European countries move to vaccinate their citizens against the virus, which has been ravaging the world for over a year now, and to gauge any potential side effects of inoculation. Some 23 people in Norway were reported dead shortly after receiving their Pfizer/BioNTech jab, with the WHO making clear its intent to follow the investigation of these deaths closely, as a representative of the organisation told Sputnik. The results of autopsies conducted on 13 of the deceased suggest that “common side effects may have contributed to severe reactions in frail, elderly people,” Bloomberg claims, citing the Norwegian Medicines Agency. “For those with the most severe frailty, even relatively mild vaccine side effects can have serious consequences,” the Norwegian Institute of Public Health said. “For those who have a very short remaining life span anyway, the benefit of the vaccine may be marginal or irrelevant.”
