First nursing home residents get second shot coronavina vaccine Sunday


On Sunday, it is three weeks since the first Danes received coronavina vaccine. That’s why the second and last plug comes now.

On Sunday, the first nursing home residents in Denmark will receive the second and final injection of the corona vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech. This is what Stephanie Lose (V), who is chairman of the Danish Regions, says.

– From Sunday – and especially next week – we will see that the number of gene vaccinations will be quite large. As a result, there will not be as many newly vaccinated, she says.

When the first Danes already get the second plug on Sunday, it is because this is three weeks ago that they got the first.

The National Board of Health recommends that there are no more than between three and four weeks between the plugs.

It was planned that there could exceptionally be up to six weeks between doses, so that more could be vaccinated.

This could mean fewer infections, as there are many indications that some protection is achieved a few weeks after the first bite.

Stephanie Lose emphasizes that it is in close dialogue with the Danish Health and Medicines Authority that they are now starting to give another go with the vaccine.

– In nursing homes, it makes very good sense to give the residents, who are the most vulnerable and vulnerable, the maximum protection as soon as possible, she says.

1 in 40 Danes has now received the first vaccine injection, which is the highest proportion in the EU.

According to Lose, one of the explanations for the good start of vaccinations is the good cooperation between regions, municipalities, the state and the doctors.

Here, the authorities are in control of deliveries, and the regions are being prepared for what is on the way.

– The National Board of Health ensures that we get vaccinated the citizens who have the highest priority, and the municipalities have made a huge effort to obtain consent and take care of the logistics.

– Finally, the general practitioners have willingly lined up to be able to execute the effort, she says.

She expects that from next week there will be fewer than before starting vaccination.

Among other things, this must be seen in the light of the fact that doses must be used for people who receive another plug.

At the same time, the Statens Serum Institut (SSI) announced on Friday that Pfizer / BioNTech will deliver fewer vaccines in the coming weeks than planned.

It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The reason for the fewer vaccines is that Pfizer has to upgrade its factory in Belgium.
