There have been 27 reports of possible serious side effects after vaccination of children between the ages of 12 and 17 this autumn.
In total, the Norwegian Medicines Agency has received 192 reports of possible side effects. More than 300,000 doses were administered, and 27 of the reports were classified as possible serious side effects, the newspaper Aftenposten writes.
“We must say that this is not a lot considering how man young people have been vaccinated,” chief physician Sigurd Hortemo at the Norwegian Medicines Agency told the newspaper.
The Norwegian Medicines Agency thinks the figures are reassuring and show that the children tolerate the vaccine well.
For all vaccinated people in Norway, the number of reports of possible serious side effects is 35 per 100,000 doses for the Pfizer vaccine and 41 for Moderna’s corona vaccine, according to NTB.
