It is also possible to register for an appointment and the vaccination queue during the following weeks

Residents are vaccinated at their local health stations. Anyone in home care and home nursing will receive their corona vaccine through the home care and home nursing services.

– Corona vaccinations are delivered to us in small batches every week, which is why some of those who are to be vaccinated are placed in a vaccination queue. Those in the vaccination queue will be called when the vaccine is available. The vaccination queue can also be easily called in the coming weeks, says the Nursing Director of Healthcare Services Kathy Guss.
