A total of 80 of the approximately 340,000 children who have been vaccinated against coronavirus in Norway may have had serious side effects from the vaccine. Two children have applied for compensation, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) reports.
Possible side effects include heart inflammation, fainting, allergic reactions, and menstrual disorders.
Hospitalization is the most common reason why a (side effect) report is considered serious. Hospitalizations are considered serious even if the patient has only been admitted for observation and recovers quickly.
Two children have applied for compensation, and both are 14 years old. One had headaches—the other experienced heavy breathing.
“Cases concerning children and young people always affect us more,” Norwegian System of Compensation to Patients (Norsk pasientskadeerstatning) director Rolf Gunnar Jørstad told NRK.
“In both of these cases, the children experienced serious ailments. It has also led to a lot of school absences, as far as I know,” Jørstad said.
If the corona vaccine could be a cause of ailments and there is no other more probable explanation, you are entitled to compensation, according to NPE. The level of the compensation depends on extra expenses you have had, your financial losses, or whether you will suffer permanent injuries/effects.
