More than 40,000 doses of Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine, which were expected to arrive in Norway this week, have been delayed by about one week, the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) told news bureau NTB.
“We have not been able to confirm whether the delay will also lead to a reduction in the number of doses delivered. Originally, we had expected 43,000 doses from Moderna in week 7,” Jasper Littmann, assistant director of the corona vaccination program at the FHI, wrote in an email.
The first Moderna vaccine was administered in Norway on January 15.
In January, it was announced that Norway would receive around 1.9 million doses of the Moderna vaccine.
In Sweden, this week’s delivery of corona vaccines from Moderna will be delayed by two weeks. In addition, the country will receive only half of the original amount.
