Mass vaccination against coronavirus began in the country in December last year. Two vaccines for emergency use have been approved so far. This vaccine is from Modern and a product from Pfizer / BioNTech. Swissmedic has reportedly received a total of 42 reports of suspected adverse drug reactions due to vaccination so far. “Most of the reports (62%) were not serious and included mild reactions that are already known from clinical trials. 16 messages (38%) were classified as serious, and five messages were associated with a fatal outcome,”the regulator said in a statement to RIA Novosti.

The report also highlights that five patients between the ages of 84 and 92 have died from concomitant illnesses, but there is no concrete evidence that vaccination was the cause of death.

As reported with reference to the Federal Office of Public Health of the country, as of January 21, almost 170 thousand people were vaccinated in Switzerland.

Earlier it was reported that two elderly people died in Estonia after being vaccinated by Pfizer. The press service of the republic's drug department noted that they had no side effects after vaccination.

In France, 135 cases of adverse reactions to the Pfizer vaccine were recorded. Most cases meet expectations or are minor side effects such as fever, headache, and nausea. 31 cases were classified as serious adverse reactions, including four cases of tachycardia. In addition, nine people died after being vaccinated with the drug.

It was also reported that in India, about 600 people went to medical institutions due to complications after vaccination against coronavirus. The Ministry of Health said that after vaccination in the country, two people died, but their death was not associated with the vaccine, but caused by "cardiopulmonary insufficiency." It is worth noting that at the first stage in India, two drugs are used for vaccination against coronavirus: the Covishield vaccine developed by the British-Swedish company AstraZenec and the University of Oxford, and the Covaxin vaccine by the Indian company Bharat Biotech.

Earlier in Norway, 23 deaths were recorded after being vaccinated with the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine. All those killed are over 80 years old. In Germany, authorities have also begun testing after the death of ten people vaccinated with the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine. The dead were between 79 and 93 years old, all had serious illnesses. It was also reported that several Germans had contracted the coronavirus, although they had previously received the Pfizer vaccine.
