NIPH is investigating the connection to vaccination

NIPH is now using population surveys to study the possible link between coronary vaccination and bleeding disorders, they announced in a press release earlier this fall.

– This is important to find out and we are now working to acquire knowledge about this through analyzes of data that the National Institute of Public Health has collected in several Norwegian population surveys, says project manager and doctor, Lill Trogstad at the National Institute of Public Health.

The analysis of the information collected from the surveys is ongoing, and the results are continuously published.

The results will help to clarify whether bleeding disorders occur more frequently in vaccinated than non-vaccinated people, how severe the symptoms are, and how long they last.

– It is not inconceivable that an immune response after covid-19 vaccination can lead to disturbances of the menstrual cycle, but it is too early to conclude, Lill Trogstad emphasizes.
