Norway has issued a tale of caution for the old and terminally ill people who are being administered the Coronavirus vaccine after 23 people died in the countries shortly after receiving a jab of the vaccine.

“For those with the most severe frailty, even relatively mild vaccine side effects can have serious consequences,” the Norwegian Institute of Public Health cautioned. “For those who have a very short remaining life span anyway, the benefit of the vaccine may be marginal or irrelevant.”

Out of the 23 deaths, 13 have been autopsied in which it was revealed that common side effects may have contributed to reactions in vulnerable and elderly people, Norwegian Medicines Agency reported.
