A woman in her 30s died after an acute illness in Tynset ten days after she was vaccinated with the corona vaccine from AstraZeneca.

Vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine has been put on hold in Norway and several other countries after one vaccinated person died due to a blood clot in Denmark.

On March 10, 30 cases of blood clots were reported among 5 million people who had been vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine in the EU and EEA.

Tynset Municipality emphasized that the woman did not die of a blood clot. The death has been routinely reported to the Norwegian Medicines Agency.

It has not been determined that there is a connection between the vaccine and the death, the Norwegian Medicines Agency wrote in a press release.

Tuveng-Bjørnstad: Not aware of underlying diseases

The woman died on March 6, according to municipal chief physician Tor Halvor Tuveng-Bjørnstad.

He told NTB that the Municipality “routinely” connected the death with the vaccination because the vaccination took place ten days before the death.

“We are not aware that she had any underlying diseases,” he said.

The death is being followed up by the Norwegian Medicines Agency and the National Institute of Public Health (FHI).

“We have talked to the Norwegian Medicines Agency twice, and we know that they take this very seriously,” Tuveng-Bjørnstad added.

  1. I do hope politics and poor science don’t delay a vaccine that will save many lives
