As of August 3, the Norwegian Medicines Agency has received 23,650 reports of suspected side effects of the corona vaccine. It is not a given that there is a causal connection between the side effects and the corona vaccine, the agency notes.
A total of 14,176 reports have been processed, and 2,216 have been classified as serious, according to the adverse reaction report published on Thursday.
“Incidents after vaccination are reported on suspicion. It is therefore not a given that there is a causal connection,” the report states.
The adverse reaction report summarizes all reports of suspected adverse reactions that the Norwegian Medicines Agency has processed after more than three million people have been vaccinated.
“The challenge is to distinguish symptoms and diseases that occur randomly from those that may be related to vaccination,” the agency noted.
