Children born between 2006 and 2008 in upper secondary school should be offered one dose of the corona vaccine, the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) recommends.
At the government’s press conference at noon, it will be clear whether Solberg decided to follow the National Institute of Public Health’s recommendation.
The Norwegian Institute of Public Health has spent the summer assessing whether children and young people should be offered a corona vaccine.
Children and young people aged 12–15 who are at risk of becoming seriously ill from the coronavirus have been offered a vaccine.
According to the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, this group comprises between 2,000 and 3,000 children.
A number of other countries are already vaccinating children over the age of 12 against coronavirus, including Finland, Denmark, Cyprus, New Zealand, Ireland, and the United States.
