Norway will receive 120,000 more doses from Pfizer in the second quarter than expected, Minister of Health Bent Høie (H) said.
“We must be prepared for both good and bad vaccine news,” the Minister of Health said at the government’s press conference on the corona situation on Wednesday.
“Now we received good news. We will receive 120,000 more vaccines from Pfizer in the second quarter than we had anticipated earlier,” Høie said.
“We rely on many different vaccines to be able to vaccinate the population, even if there are problems with one or more vaccines. This way, the vaccination in Norway will not stop.”
Høie noted that if the vaccines from Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Moderna arrive as planned, Norway will have enough vaccines during the summer months to offer the entire adult population a vaccine.
“But that presupposes that the manufacturers do not encounter unforeseen problems,” he warned.
