Children in Trondheim between the ages of 12 and 15 will be offered a vaccine in week 36. The Municipality aims to vaccinate the age group before the autumn holidays.

Municipal director Morten Wolden stated at a press conference on Thursday afternoon. Almost 75% of the Municipality’s residents have received a dose of one of the corona vaccines.

Health and welfare director Wenche Dehli says that the vaccination of 12-15-year-olds will be carried out in week 38.

“We expect to have them vaccinated before the autumn holidays. That is our goal,” Dehli said.

Infection situation

Trondheim vaccinates between 3,000 and 4,000 people every day and between 13,000 and 17,000 each week. A total of 9,000 people in the youngest group will receive the vaccine. 12-15-year-olds with underlying diseases have already been vaccinated.

On Wednesday, 48 new cases of infection were registered in the city, 14 fewer than the day before. Wolden considers that good news.

On Tuesday, authorities in Trondheim decided to keep in force the regulations on the use of face masks on buses, taxis, and in places where it is not possible to keep one meter of distance from other people. Furthermore, visitors to restaurants must be registered.
