It is unnecessary to be tested for the coronavirus if you have been vaccinated, the Danish health authorities said on Tuesday, NTB reports.

“The risk of passing on infection when you have been vaccinated and do not have symptoms of COVID-19 is very small,” Deputy Director of the Danish National Board of Health, Helene Bilsted Probst, said.

She says that they will therefore no longer recommend that those who have been vaccinated get tested if they have no symptoms.

New studies indicate that the risk of infecting others is minimal when one has been vaccinated.

Returning to normal life?

At the same time, the National Board of Health states that people who are more exposed to COVID-19 can look forward to a more normal everyday life when they have been vaccinated.

Among other things, the Board no longer recommends that they shop outside of the busiest times. They can now again participate in leisure activities and take public transport at no greater risk.

As of Tuesday, 18.4% of Denmark’s population have received the first dose of the corona vaccines, and 8.6% have received both doses.
