One year has passed since Svein Andersen became the first person in Norway to get the corona vaccine.

Andersen, who lives at Ellingsrudhjemmet in Oslo, was the first person in Norway to receive both the first and second dose of the corona vaccine, the newspaper Avisa Oslo writes.

“I had hoped the vaccines would give a better result and that the disease would end,” he told the newspaper.

Andersen has also received his third dose and is thus one of 21.7% of Oslo’s population and 26.6% of Norway’s population over the age of 18 who received the booster dose.

“The signals say that the new corona (variant) is not so dangerous, so we may be approaching the end. But we can not take it for granted yet. We will probably have to be careful for a while longer,” Andersen said.

After receiving the first two vaccine doses, the 68-year-old man has been nicknamed “Armstrong” because the event was compared to Neil Armstrong’s moon landing.
