The FHI is asking Norwegian municipalities to prepare for increased demand for corona vaccines before the summer.
“It is to be expected that there will be a certain demand for corona vaccines before the summer, as people will want to meet the requirements for corona certificates or other documentation in connection with travel. The municipalities must also take this into account,” the FHI wrote in a letter to the country’s municipalities dated Friday last week.
At the same time, it emphasized that it should be communicated that the vaccines are given based on medical needs.
In the letter, the FHI also noted that there might be an increased need for vaccination in connection with a possible influx of refugees from Ukraine.
Norway currently has over 1.2 million vaccine doses in central storage, P4 reported on Monday. Over 2.8 million Norwegians have received three doses of the vaccine, while over 4 million Norwegians have received two doses, the FHI’s figures show.
