Norway has recorded a total of 29 deaths among people over the age of 75 who received their first vaccination against Covid-19, raising questions about which groups should be targeted in national vaccination programs.

The latter number adds six to the number of known deaths in Norway, and also lowers the age group believed to be affected from 80.

As of Friday, Pfizer / BioNTech was the only vaccine available in Norway, “so all deaths are related to this vaccine,” the Norwegian Medicines Agency said in a written response to Bloomberg on Saturday.
