Write-up: DEATH; This is a spontaneous report from a contactable physician downloaded from the Medicines Agency (MA) regulatory authority-WEB NO-NOMAADVRE-FHI-2021-Umng1 and NO-NOMAADVRE-E2B_00015344. A 92-year-old female patient received first dose of BNT162B2 (COMIRNATY), intramuscular on 05Feb2021 at single dose for COVID-19 immunization. Medical history included cardiovascular disorder, heart failure and cardiac valve disease, all from an unknown date and unknown if ongoing. The patient''s concomitant medications were not reported. The patient''s death occurred on 09Feb2021, unknown cause of death. It was not reported if an autopsy was performed. Reporter''s comment: 12Feb2021 RELIS: Additional information requested by telephone. Updated following data fields: Product. As the reporter originally had written that she was unsure whether the patient had received MODERNA or COMIRNATY, the reporter was contacted. At that time the reporter stated that the patient was given COMIRNATY, but due to technical issues she did not manage to initially register this vaccine up on submission of the report. Batch no was unknown. Sender''s Comments (TRANSLATION): The report concerns a patient in her 90s, who was found dead in bed in the morning, four days after the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine COMIRNATY. The patient had been in a habitual state the night before. The patient had heart failure, heart valve disease and vascular disease. Normally, between 300 and 400 people die per week in nursing homes and similar institutions in Norway. In a Norwegian study of patients on long-term stays, a high degree of comorbidity, severe dementia and the need for assistance in daily activities, as well as lower BMI were among the factors associated with higher mortality. International, retrospective studies have similar findings and show, among other things, that the risk of death is increased in the first four months after admission to nursing home, and that patients who have recently been hospitalized have a particularly increased risk. Other diseases or factors that increase the risk of death, regardless of dementia or level of function, are cancer, cardiovascular disease (including heart failure and arrhythmia), kidney failure, chronic lung disease and weight loss. In general, the cause of death in nursing home patients is often multifactorial and difficult to establish with certainty. The cause of death is usually considered to be a chronic, underlying disease, which ultimately leads to a sequence of fatal complications. In a recently published cohort study that analyzed the causes of death in nursing home patients on long-term stays, cardio- and cerebrovascular diseases were accounted for 1 in 4 registered deaths. Other common causes of death in the population were neurodegenerative disease (including dementia) (about 20%), respiratory and infectious diseases (including pneumonia and sepsis) (about 15%), and cancer (about 10%). When vaccinating vulnerable / frail, multi-diseased elderly patients, some serious events, including death, may occur shortly after vaccination. In each case, it is difficult to know whether the death is due to the vaccine, the patient''s underlying disease or something else accidental, at the same time a cause that has nothing to do with the vaccination in question. However, it cannot be ruled out that the vaccine has contributed to the worsening of the patient''s underlying disease and / or habitual condition. 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 report is classified as serious, even though no causal link between the vaccine and the death has been established. No follow-up attempts possible, batch/lot number cannot be obtained. No further information expected.; Reporter''s Comments: 12Feb2021 RELIS: Additional information requested by telephone.
