Everyone over the age of 45 should be offered the third corona vaccine dose by mid-January. 

Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger, and Fredrikstad believe they can achieve this goal, the newspaper Adresseavisen reports. Trondheim is unsure whether it will be able to meet the deadline. 

Director of health and welfare in Trondheim Municipality, Wenche Dehli, says that Trondheim needs more support staff and people who can carry out the vaccination in order to meet the deadline. 

“We are working intensively to build up capacity so that we can reach the authorities’ vaccination goal,” she told the newspaper.

At the same time, she called for more information from the authorities about how municipalities can get help from pharmacies and the Armed Forced.

  1. Norway has jumped to 219 dead and 118 in critical condition … trying to catch up to Sweden’s “survival of the fittest” ideology, apparently.

    The other heavy cost of this is the exhaustion of our health personnel. Administrators should have spoken out for them … DEMANDING the government(s) mandate basic vital preventive measures like facemasking … but of course that might have imperiled those senior bureaucrats’ higher pensions, so ….

    As for me, my heart has been warning me to wait for when the milder Pfizer vaccine is available again.
