The FHI’s infection control chief Geir Bukholm believes that Norway is very close to the goal of 90% of the adult population being fully vaccinated.

The FHI’s overview shows that close to 91% of the adult population in Norway have received their first dose, while 85% have received their second dose.

“The vaccination program aims to vaccinate 90% of the population over the age of 18. We are very close to that goal now,” Bukholm told the newspaper Dagbladet.

He believes the real figure for protected people in Norway is higher than 85%.

“In addition, there are some who have undergone infection and have only received one dose, but who have the status of fully vaccinated,” Bukholm added.
