“Doctors in Norway have been told to conduct more thorough evaluations of very frail elderly patients in line to receive the Pfizer BioNTec vaccine against covid-19, following the deaths of 23 patients shortly after receiving the vaccine.” Source: BMJ
Clearly, knowing that the vaccine was released much earlier than usual, we need to be concerned here and find out more. We can’t simply “not be overly concerned” as an Australian government official said this morning of TV. There is indeed a finite chance that the vaccine which is intended to save lives is actually also taking some lives. The absence of serious concern bears resemblance of a Trump-like approach to the matter. This is just not good enough. While Trump is soon off the screen – Trumpism is not – at least in Australia!
