In a proposal that has been sent out for consultation, the Norwegian government proposes to allow nurses and pharmacists to administer vaccines against COVID-19 in 2022.
The consultation will last only two weeks so that the municipalities have time to plan for corona vaccination after the New Year, the Ministry of Health and Care Services wrote in the consultation note.
Only doctors and health nurses have the right to order the vaccine for a patient. Ordinary nurses, pharmacists, and midwives have been granted a temporary permit that lasts until the New Year.
It is now proposed to extend this permit until January 1, 2023, so that more people will be available to administer the third corona vaccine dose.
