The Norwegian Institute of Public Health (FHI) recommends that patients with severely weakened immune systems be offered a third dose of an mRNA vaccine against COVID-19.

“The offer could go into effect soon in the municipalities and as soon as it is practically possible in the hospitals. The Norwegian Institute of Public Health further recommends that the group with severely weakened immune systems be defined as clearly as possible,” the FHI wrote in response to an assignment from the Ministry of Health.

The FHI further noted that, at present, it is considered that there is no basis for repeated vaccination of other groups, such as, for example, the oldest part of the population.

“But this can change in the future,” the FHI noted.
