Should we have grandma and grandpa vaccinated against Covid-19 or shouldn’t we? In Germany alone, thousands of families are faced with this question – especially when the elderly family member can no longer decide for himself.
In this situation, reports like the one from Norway cause great uncertainty:
The country is said to have adjusted its vaccination recommendations after senior citizens died in nursing homes after vaccination. So are the vaccinations more dangerous than you thought?
The situation is more complex.
The risk increases with age – even with vaccinations
As in Germany, very old people have priority in Norway when vaccinated against the coronavirus.
The re, the age limit of 85 years is a little higher; in Germany, people aged 80 and over should preferably be vaccinated.
Experts had repeatedly pointed out that deaths after vaccination are to be expected in this age group – if only because the probability of deaths there is higher regardless of the vaccinations.
The decisive question is therefore whether the vaccination could have been the cause of death. It is precisely this question that is the task of health authorities to clarify.
