The Norwegian Medicines Agency has received 1,264 reports of suspected side effects of the coronavirus vaccines. A total of 166 are considered serious but do not provide a basis for changing the current recommendations.

Most reports concern common side effects such as pain at the injection site, general malaise with fever, fatigue, nausea, and pain in the body, the Norwegian Medicines Agency states.

The side effects usually come after a few days and often last two to three days.

The vaccines from Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna often cause more severe side effects after the second dose has been administered.

No change in recommendations

None of the reports of side effects provide a basis for changing the recommendations on the use of corona vaccines in Norway, the Norwegian Medicines Agency states.

To date, 93 reports of deaths of elderly people after vaccination have been processed, most of them nursing home residents. The average age was 87 years.

“Several among the vaccinated in this group were very frail. Therefore, it is expected that deaths will occur in the time context of vaccination, without there having to be a causal relationship,” the Norwegian Medicines Agency explained.

  1. I do not understand the so called problem. Most vaccines have side effects, you are injected with the virus so your body can create antibodies. I have had many injections etc as my father was a service man. All resulted in my protection against the specific illness. No problem for me when offered the vaccine.
