A revised scenario shows that the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) presented will somewhat slow down the vaccination’s pace on Friday. There will be vaccination delays for several groups.

According to the most recent vaccination scenario from the FHI, the time for everyone between the ages of 75-84 to receive the first dose of the vaccine is moved forward two weeks until the turn of the month, March-April. 

At the same time, 65-75-year-olds and those at high risk over 18 will have to wait just over a month longer before everyone can receive the first dose.

Health professionals now expect that everyone could receive the first dose at the beginning of June.

The two-week vaccination break for AstraZeneca vaccines will allegedly have a small impact on the process’s progress, according to the FHI.
