Corona vaccination in schools can lead to vaccination pressure, according to the FHI. They recommend that 12-15-year-olds be summoned to vaccination centers in the same way as adults.

“In schools, there can be greater pressure on the individual student. Those who say no become very visible,” chief physician Preben Aavitsland at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).

The Parents’ Committee for Primary Schools (FUG) agrees.

“It is wise that the vaccination does not take place at the school out of respect for those who say no or want to wait,” FUG leader Marius Chramer stated.

Furthermore, the vaccines are vulnerable to transport, and it is easier to make better use of the vaccine doses at a vaccine center, according to Aavitsland.
