The Norwegian Medicines Agency will examine all reported side effects of coronavirus vaccination to look for traces of blood clots.
Technical director Steinar Madsen told news bureau NTB that it is important to remember that blood clots are a very rare side effect that can not yet be determined to be related to the vaccination.
“We will go through all the side effects reports that may have to do with blood clots,” Madsen said.
More data needed
He adds that, so far, it does not appear that there are more cases of blood clots in the population that have been vaccinated than among people who have not.
“But we are also looking at individual patients to see if there are conditions that allow them to have a greater risk,” Madsen added.
