The health authority in Norway has changed its guidelines for corona vaccinations after several deaths.

The focus is on specific people.

People all over the world have been fighting the

coronavirus for a year

- and this is likely to continue for a few more months.

Again and again, politics has to

sharpen

the

corona measures

, for example at the corona summit on January 19 *.

But the desired success has so far not been achieved.

And thus the

lockdown

remains

, while the great hope

lies

in the

corona vaccinations

, which should gradually enable a return to normal, as

reported by echo24.de

Corona vaccinations: Norway warns of the consequences for older, frail patients

But with the

corona vaccines

, news from

Norway is

causing

uncertainty.

According to the

Bloomberg

news agency, the

Norwegian

health authority

warns

that the

Covid-19 vaccines

could be risky for the very old and seriously ill.

According to

Bloomberg,

this is the most cautious statement by a European health authority to date after the countries have started

to evaluate

the

side effects of

the corona vaccines in real use.

For this reason, the guidelines for

vaccinating

this group of people - the very old and seriously ill - against

Covid-19 have been

changed

in Norway

.

Specifically, it is about the side effects of the mRNA vaccines from Biontech / Pfizer *

(Corminaty vaccine) and the Covid-19 vaccine from

Moderna

, which have so far been approved in the EU.

For younger and fitter people, the

side effects would

usually not pose a threat, said Steinar Madsen, medical director of the Norwegian Health Authority, according to the

Ärzteblatt

.

Coronavirus: 23 seriously ill seniors in Norway died after vaccination

The background to the warning is an evaluation of the

deaths

in

Norway

.

According to the Norwegian authorities, 23 seniors died shortly after receiving their first

dose of vaccine

.

They were all over 75 and had serious underlying illnesses.

An

autopsy was

performed in

13 deaths

.

According to the

Tagesschau

, the

head of the Norwegian Medicines Agency said

that in all 13 cases it could not be ruled out that

side effects of

the

corona vaccinations contributed to

the death.

Side effects of

the

mRNA vaccines

from

Biontech / Pfizer

and

Moderna

can include fever, nausea, pain at the injection site, headache, muscle and joint pain as well as chills and fatigue.

After their

corona vaccination

,

patients are

always observed for up to 30 minutes in order to be able to react to possible allergic reactions.

As in Germany, older people and people in need of care are currently being

vaccinated

against

Corona

in Norway

.

Health authorities in Norway say there's no evidence of a direct link between the recent string of deaths among elderly people inoculated against Covid-19 and the vaccine they received https://t.co/KpndmR4jCv

Corona vaccinations: Norway changes vaccination guidelines for frail people

Steinar Madsen from the

Norwegian health authority

said, however, that one was neither alarmed nor worried.

These are very rare incidents in very frail

patients

with a serious

underlying disease

.

The occurring 

side effects of

 the 

vaccine

 such as fever, nausea and diarrhea would have worsened the condition of the patients at best, as also

wa.de

* reported on the all-clear in Norway *.

Doctors in

Norway

were asked to continue with the

corona vaccinations

.

Nevertheless, the Norwegian Pharmacopoeia is now playing it safe and is now advising

caution

with very old, sick people.

The usual

side effects of

the

Covid 19 vaccinations

could lead to severe courses for these people with underlying diseases.

The changed instruction: In the

future, the doctors should carry out an individual assessment of

patients

who apply to these characteristics.

This applies to talking to patients and relatives about the risks and benefits of vaccination.

In

Germany

, too, there are people who died after the

corona vaccination

.

The

Paul Ehrlich Institute

loudly declared

FAZ

, from the temporal context, it is no causal link dissipate.

It was about patients with "serious underlying diseases".

Deaths after corona vaccinations in Norway - this is how Biontech and Pfizer react

As the

evening news

reports, took before the

approval

of the

BioNTech / Pfizer preparation

part around 43,500 people in the study.

However, only a few of the subjects were over 85 years old and none of the subjects was acutely ill or in an unstable condition.

According to a report by the

FAZ

, Biontech and Pfizer announced that they had been informed about the incidents in

Norway

and were working with the authorities there.

However, the companies also pointed out that in Norway, people who are very old and sometimes terminally ill are currently being vaccinated.
