The National Institute of Public Health (FHI) wants to shorten the interval between corona vaccine doses from twelve to four weeks so that people are fully vaccinated earlier.

Initially, the period between the first and second vaccine dose should be shortened to between nine and seven weeks. 

Eventually, when many people over the age of 18 have been vaccinated with the first dose, the interval should be shortened to only four weeks, infection control director Geir Bukholm at the FHI told newspaper VG.

The municipalities will be notified from next week about the plan’s details. This will be followed up weekly so that the municipalities know from week to week how long to wait between administering doses.

In April, the Norwegian government extended the interval between doses from six to up to twelve weeks.
