The Norwegian Police Association believes it would be in the best interest of society for the police to be prioritized in the vaccine queue.
“In all the joy of starting to open up again, there are some who actually have to make sure that people follow infection control rules,” Sigve Bolstad, leader of the Police Association, told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK).
The Norwegian Police Association has conducted a survey that shows that most police reacted strongly to the fact that they are not prioritized in the vaccine queue.
Bolstad believes it would now be in the best interests of society for the police to be vaccinated.
Bolstad: We have shown solidarity
“We have shown solidarity and have had a great understanding of the priorities that have been linked to health, the elderly, and the sick. But now, the police should be given priority. Especially those who are in the front line,” he said.
The Ministry of Health and Care Services says that the authorities follow the advice they have received from the FHI, according to which certain occupational groups, apart from health personnel, shouldn’t be prioritized.
