Denmark has received the first claim for compensation for a death caused by a special type of blood clot, which the authorities link with the Astrazeneca vaccine. The patient compensation scheme has received a total of 29 compensation applications from citizens who have received the Astrazeneca vaccine. A further eight cases concern the Pfizer vaccine. There are no claims for Moderna.

This is stated by Patienterstatningen, which handles cases of compensation for citizens who are affected by serious side effects from e.g. medicines.

“We know there are more cases out there and we would like to have them in” said Karen-Inger Bast, Director of Patient Compensation.
