Norway has secured an additional 1.9 million doses of the Moderna vaccine. Now, a total of 3.8 million Norwegians can get vaccinated, newspaper VG reports.
Sweden’s vaccine coordinator Richard Bergström shared the news with VG.
He estimates that Norway will initially receive 150,000 doses of the vaccine. However, he noted that efforts are being made to obtain more.
After March, the doses will significantly increase.
Norway has already secured a total of 2.5 million doses of the Pfizer vaccine and 3.3 million of the Oxford vaccine from AstraZeneca.
That means that Norway will receive a total of 7.7 million doses, enough to vaccinate 3,850,000 people.
The vaccine against COVID-19 must be taken in two doses, so there are already enough vaccines to cover almost the entire population in Norway over the age of 18.
