All adult citizens of Oslo have been offered a corona vaccine. But there are still over 90,000 unvaccinated adults in the city, and close to 12,000 of them turned down the vaccine.
Most people who do not want to take the vaccine are between 18 and 44 years old, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.
Oslo Municipality recently started with drop-in vaccination to ensure that as many young people as possible take the vaccine. That is a strategy that many European countries have also recently chosen in order to increase the pace of vaccination.
More than 500,000 Oslo citizens have now received one or two doses, and among them, more than 240,000 have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to NTB.
“Vaccination is the most important factor in keeping the epidemic under control, and vaccination can replace many of the other measures,” FHI chief physician Preben Aavitsland told NTB this week.
