Next week, there will be a complete halt in the mass vaccination in Stavanger as the city will only receive 5,000 doses, all of which are reserved.
Stavanger has the capacity to administer 10,000 corona vaccines in one week, Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) writes.
This week, the city received 4,236 doses of the Pfizer vaccine. More than half went to people under the age of 64 with an underlying illness, while the rest were administered as second doses by GPs.
Next week, Stavanger is promised 5,000 new doses. All of these should be given as the second dose to GPs or to healthcare professionals who were given the AstraZeneca vaccine as the first dose.
Rogaland is the county in the country with the lowest proportion of vaccinated people, according to figures from the National Institute of Public Health (FHI).
“The doses are distributed not only according to population, but also age composition in the population. In Rogaland, we have a young population. We have more young people than older people. That means that we get a little less than counties with an older population,” Janne Dahle Melhus told NRK.
