On Tuesday afternoon, Oslo Municipality will start vaccinating 18-year-olds in Bjerke district.

Bjerke is one of the districts that received extra vaccine doses earlier this year due to high infection pressure, newspaper Aftenposten writes.

The Norwegian authorities have previously approved vaccination of people as young as 12 years of age, but only if they have underlying diseases. 

Now, for the first time, healthy 18-year-olds will be offered the coronavirus vaccine.

The 18-24 age group will be vaccinated at the same time as people who are between 40 and 44 years old. 

The 25-39 age group will be vaccinated last, the newspaper writes.
