Norway is behind schedule when it comes to vaccination. It received only 372,000 vaccine doses in February. In March, Norway is scheduled to receive 600,000 doses.
In May, however, more than 2 million doses are expected, newspaper Aftenposten writes. The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) went into February with a detailed plan, covered by TV2 on January 29.
Norway was supposed to receive a total of 459,000 vaccine doses, but the final result amounted to 372,000, according to figures obtained by Aftenposten.
It was mainly AstraZeneca that failed to deliver as much as the FHI hoped in February.
If the suppliers follow the plan, Norway will receive over 600,000 doses in March. In April, the figure is 1.5 million. In May, Norway could get 2 million doses.
“We are concerned about the delays. But we are less worried than we have been. In March, will we get more than we have gotten combined until now,” FHI chief Camilla Stoltenberg noted.
