🇳🇴@COVID19Up: The Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine is “likely” responsible for at least 10 deaths of elderly people in nursing homes in Norway, an expert review commissioned by the Norwegian Medicines Agency has concluded.
The mortality rate in nursing homes is usually very high so the deaths of some nursing home residents after vaccination was anticipated. The Norwegian Medicines Agency wanted to determine if the COVID-19 vaccine had hastened any deaths.
The expert group was established at the end of February 2021 to look into the cause of the first 100 reported deaths of nursing home residents who had received the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.
The review concluded on May 19 that a link between the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine and death was considered “likely” in 10 of the 100 cases.
