The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) no longer has a fixed interval between corona vaccine doses. It encourages municipalities to start administering dose two of the vaccine as soon as possible.

“From now on, we no longer operate with a fixed interval – you can administer as many second doses as possible. The only requirement is to ensure that no one gets an interval longer than twelve weeks,” infection control director Geir Bukholm at the FHI told the newspaper VG.

Therefore, each municipality will get to decide by itself when people can get the second dose of the corona vaccine and what happens to those who already have an appointment for dose two. 

Up to Friday, the interval between the first and second vaccine dose has been twelve weeks for healthy people under 65 years of age.
