WHO report on Vaccine Safety for Elderly (General)

The World Health Organisation convened a meeting of a subcommittee of its global advisory committee on vaccine safety following the Norway deaths, which examined data from the European Medicines Agency and the Swedish Uppsala Monitoring Centre on deaths reported in frail, elderly individuals who had received the vaccine across Europe.

“The current reports do not suggest any unexpected or untoward increase in fatalities in frail, elderly individuals or any unusual characteristics of adverse events following administration of BNT162b2,” it reported.

“Reports are in line with the expected, all-cause mortality rates and causes of death in the sub-population of frail, elderly individuals, and the available information does not confirm a contributory role for the vaccine in the reported fatal events.

“In view of this, the committee considers that the benefit-risk balance of BNT162b2 remains favourable in the elderly, and does not suggest any revision, at present, to the recommendations around the safety of this vaccine.” (paywall)

Having lost trust in the WHO's recommendations, we'll just record this here then check back later to see if it was right or not.
