A member of the government’s expert committee strongly opposes the Norwegian government’s decision which allows for the voluntary use of the Janssen vaccine.

The Janssen vaccine from the company Johnson & Johnson was not removed from the vaccine program this week

“An incorrect assessment,” Ingvild Sørvoll, who sat on the expert committee that advised the government, said. 

“We are very concerned that people will choose to take the Janssen vaccine voluntarily. From a medical professional point of view, we believe the government has made an incorrect assessment,” Sørvoll told newspaper Dagbladet.

Chief physician Frank O. Pettersen at Oslo University Hospital agrees with her.

On Wednesday, the government announced it would allow the voluntary use of the Janssen vaccine in the long run. The use of the vaccine is currently on hold in the vaccination program.
