Based on the promising vaccine news, the government hopes to start vaccination against COVID-19 in Norway at the beginning of next year. That is what Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H) said on Wednesday.

At the government’s press conference on the corona situation on Wednesday, Prime Minister Solberg presented uplifting vaccine news.

“There is hope that the pharmaceutical authorities in the EU can approve one or more vaccines during the year. 

“That means that we can hopefully start vaccinating priority groups as early as 2021,” Solberg said.

The EU has so far entered into agreements with five different vaccine manufacturers, and Norway is covered by these agreements.

“In October, the government decided that vaccination against COVID-19 will be offered through the national vaccination program and that it will be free to get vaccinated,” she added.
