The FHI states that long-term side effects after getting corona vaccines are unlikely. It believes it would be very unexpected if new side effects appeared now.

After a year of corona vaccination and 11 million administered doses in Norway, the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) has gained increased insight and knowledge about side effects.

The FHI considers the benefit of protection from the vaccines used in Norway against serious cases of COVID-19 to be much greater than the risk of serious vaccine side effects.

“It would be very unusual and unexpected if new side effects appeared that we have not yet seen after the 11 million administered doses in Norway,” senior adviser Gro Evensen at the FHI pointed out.

Only one vaccine given in Norway has been found to have a serious side effect more than six weeks after the vaccination – the Pandemrix vaccine, offered during the swine flu pandemic.
