The Trondheim Municipality is struggling to get in touch with many people over the age of 85 who need to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“We have sent letters in the mail to those over 85 years whom we have not managed to contact. 

“We hope it could lead to them signing up for an appointment for vaccination. Trondheim municipality also encourages relatives to be aware of this,” communications consultant Rolf Ivar Svensli noted in a press release.

Relatives can book an appointment for vaccination on behalf of the elderly either by calling the corona line or by using their own bank ID.

On Tuesday, the Municipality registered three new corona cases. All are men and have a mild course of the disease.

One has been infected through known close contact with the South African virus mutation, while the others were infected abroad.

Trondheim eased its coronation measures on Tuesday. Among other things, it was decided that a number of businesses can reopen, and the requirement for working from home has been removed. 

In addition, the NTNU campuses were allowed to reopen, and there will no longer be a stop to alcohol-serving at 10:00 PM.
