Prime Minister Erna Solberg told the newspaper VG that Norway is poised to be able to fully vaccinate its population three weeks earlier than expected.
“The FHI’s updated vaccine calendar shows that Norway is poised to be able to fully vaccinate the Norwegian population about three weeks faster than the previous vaccine calendar showed,” Solberg (H) told VG.
She said that Norway would probably receive over 250,000 extra doses from the vaccine manufacturers Moderna and Pfizer in July and August. On top of that, there will also be 70,000 extra doses from Moderna in September.
“This is in addition to the 258,000 extra doses from Pfizer that became known yesterday, and the 100,000 doses we received from Lithuania last week, and which have already arrived in Norway,” Solberg noted.
“This is good news. It is important for the further reopening of Norway,” she concluded.
