Almost 300 people have applied for compensation due to injuries and/or death in connection with corona vaccination. More than NOK 1.1 million has been paid out so far.

According to the Norwegian System of Compensation to Patients, of the 46 cases that have been processed, compensation has been granted in 14 of them (Norsk pasientskadeerstatning). So far, a total of just over NOK 1.1 million has been paid out.

The quoted side effects include heart inflammation, blood clots, severe headaches and fatigue, itchy rashes, temporary paralysis, and allergic reaction.

Four of the conditions apply to VITT (vaccine-induced immune thrombotic thrombocytopenia), which causes the body’s immune system to form blood clots and low platelets. VITT is the side effect that has led to the most serious problems and the largest compensation amounts.

In two of the four cases, it led to death.

In 15 of the cases, applicant claims have been rejected because the ailments were most likely not due to the vaccine, they were temporary, or the claimants did not incur financial losses.

A total of 17 cases have been dropped because the claimants withdrew the case or haven’t provided all the information that Norsk pasientskadeerstatning needs to process the case.
