Norway vaccine policy might exclude terminally ill - BioNTech

Vaccine developer BioNTech SE revealed on Monday that the Norway government has modified its policy regarding the use of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine against the COVID-19, so it might exclude the elderly population that is terminally ill.

BioNTech noted that 23 suspected vaccine-related deaths have been confirmed so far by health authorities in Norway. However, the country's health agency said that "an evaluation should be carried for each individual patient as to whether the benefits of vaccination outweigh the risks of eventual side effects."

Meanwhile, a recent report revealed that Australia also opened an investigation on suspected vaccine-related fatalities ahead of the mass vaccination campaign that is set to start next month.
