Write-up: Death; dehydration; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician downloaded from the Agency Regulatory Authority- NO-NOMAADVRE-FHI-2021-U8x3n, Safety Report Unique Identifier NO-NOMAADVRE-E2B_00014869. Fatal outcome of a 95-year-old male seven days after vaccination with BNT162B2 (COMIRNATY, lot number: EJ6795) received first dose on 13Jan2021 14:00 intramuscularly at a single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included death imminent from 09Jan2021 to an unknown date, multimorbidity, malnutrition, living in nursing home. As concomitant medication the patient was given fluconazole (DIFLUCAN, strength: 100 mg) from 11Jan2021 to 18Jan2021 due to fungal infection of the mouth. The patient was multimorbid, malnutritioned before the vaccination and was designated as preterminal from 09Jan2021 until death 20Jan2021. Reporter believed that the outcome would most likely be the same regardless of vaccination, but that it is difficult to say whether the outcome was accelerated due to the vaccination or not. Multimorbid patient. The patient has been ill in the last year and has been preterminal 3-4 times before but has recovered each time. Reporter would not really have recommended vaccination for the patient in question. This patient has DNR-Code and had tendency for bleeding. The reporter believed that the patient had heart and kidney failure but does not remember completely (does not have the opportunity to look up in the journal). Timeline - notes from journal note: 11Jan2021 13:20: The patient has eaten little in the last 2-3 days, and he seems bothered. On examination today, the patient has coating on the tongue and a little on the pharyngeal mucosa. It is agreed to start with fluconazole for fungal infection, 200 mg the first day and then 100 mg daily, assess effect in 1 week to assess effect and possible treatment time. 11Jan2021 14:14: Following recommendations, the patient is offered bnt162b2 vaccine. The patient/relative has given consent for him to receive the vaccine. Vaccination is voluntary. 13Jan2021 14:00: COMIRNATY was given. On 18Jan2021 12:44: The Patient has been reduced last week, was put on fluconazole due to fungus from 11Jan2021, but the patient is still reduced and lying in bed. The patient eats and drinks very little. At the weekend ate and drank very little, lying in bed, slept a lot. Attempts were made to treat with intravenous fluids (1000 Ringer) daily for three days in regards to dehydration, without much effect. During supervision today, the patient is lying in bed, lies with his mouth open, does not make contact, no eye contact. The patient does not respond to indictment, does not appear like he is in pain or short of breath. Normal vital signs, last CRP of 16, HB control over 8. Lungs and abdomen without remarks. No signs or focus of infection, stable HB, not helped with fluid therapy for dehydration. Further measures: He is perceived as preterminal, no indication for antibiotic treatment or further intravenous fluid treatment. The patient must be observed in the future. In the event of a persistent clinical condition, he must be treated as the preterminal/terminal patient and treated with four drugs for the end-of-life phase. Treatment intensity: The patient must be treated in a nursing home unless there is an indication for hospitalization in the event of a treatment failure (relief) which leads to many troublesome symptoms that we are unable to alleviate in the nursing home. It should be discussed with the hospital / doctor before admission. 19Jan2021 14:51: The patient lies with his mouth open, notices that the doctor is present and makes "almost" eye contact. Appears clearly weakened. Moistens the mouth with a sponge, he cannot suck on it. Slightly answers no to the question if he has any ailments and answers yes to the question if he is okay, otherwise not possible with any dialogue. Patient does not appear bothered, respiration is free and effortless. Does not hurt when the abdomen is palpitated. Lower extremities slim and warm. Papers are signed. Conversations with the son who seem to understand that it seems to be coming to an end. 26Jan2021 - 08:42: The patient died quietly 20Jan2021 in the morning. The doctor confirmed the death the same day and also spoke to the son. Sender Comment: A 95-year-old man who received the first dose of COMIRNATY 13Jan2021 died 20Jan2021. The patient also started treatment with fluconazole 11Jan2021 due to a fungal infection in the mouth. The patient was previously multimorbid, malnourished and was described as a preterminal from 09Jan2021. Reporter believes that the outcome would most likely be the same, regardless of vaccination, but that it is difficult to say whether the outcome was accelerated due to the vaccination. When vaccinating patients with frailty who are ill with many underlying diseases, some serious incidents, including death, may occur shortly after vaccination without any connection to vaccination. However, it cannot be ruled out that the vaccine has contributed to the worsening of the patient''s underlying disease. In each case, it is difficult to know whether the death is due to the vaccine, the patient''s underlying disease or some other random, simultaneous cause that has nothing to do with the vaccination in question. On the basis of the information in the report and in accordance with international criteria, the causal link with vaccination is assessed as possible. A possible causal relationship is defined as a reaction, including pathological laboratory tests, which occurs in a temporal relation to the use of a drug, but which may also be due to an underlying disease, other drugs or chemicals. Since the patient died, the message is classified as serious, even though no causal link between the vaccine and the death has been established.

No further information expected.; Reporter''s Comments: 11Feb2021: additional information received.
