Following the post-mortem of the deceased, as many as 13 reports suggested common side-effects of the vaccine in the sick patients, said the Norwegian government.
More than 30,000 people have received the first shot of the Pfizer or Moderna coronavirus vaccine in the Scandinavian country since the end of December, according to official figures. Reacting to the deaths, the vaccine maker, Pfizer, has said that “the number of incidents so far is not alarming, and in line with expectations.”
