In Switzerland, five people died after being vaccinated with a Pfizer vaccine. All of them were elderly.
It is noted that so far there have been 42 reports of suspected side effects of the drug that occurred after the first phase of vaccination. Of these, 16 cases are classified as serious, and five ended in death.
According to the regulator, the patients who died were between the ages of 84 and 92 and their deaths were not directly related to the vaccination. It is specified that they died of diseases arising in their old age.
Earlier it became known that 79 Lithuanian doctors who had been vaccinated with Pfizer and BioNTech had contracted the coronavirus. The Lithuanian infectious disease doctor explained this by the fact that the doctors were already infected at the time of vaccination.
