The Norwegian Medicines Agency has received 29,476 reports of suspected side effects after coronavirus vaccination. Out of the total, 2,544 have been classified as serious.
After the administration of more than 6.9 million vaccine doses in Norway, the Norwegian Medicines Agency has received 29,476 reports of suspected side effects.
So far, 16,330 of the reports have been processed. Out of these, 2,544 have been classified as serious, and 13,786 have been classified as not serious.
The Norwegian Medicines Agency states that incidents after vaccination are reported on suspicion and that it is therefore not a given that there is a causal connection.
The Norwegian Medicines Agency states that monitoring side effects in children and young people is a high priority.
Young people have a more active immune system than older people. Therefore, they also tend to have stronger reactions and more often experience the common side effects after vaccination, such as fever, headache, and muscle pain.
“These very common side effects are more frequent after the second dose. They can be troublesome, but they go away. If they do not go away after 2-3 days or you experience other symptoms, you should contact a doctor,” chief physician Ingrid Aas stated.
