Norway spent 2 billion kroner on corona vaccines so far this year

This year, a total of NOK 3.7 billion has been allocated for corona vaccines, and NOK 3.2 billion has been proposed for procurement and vaccination next year. “Small change,” Espen Nakstad says.

So far this year, NOK 2 billion has been spent on the purchase of corona vaccines in Norway.

“When you see what the pandemic has cost both Norway and other countries for a year and a half, these sums are only small change,” assistant health director Espen Nakstad told P4.

In April, the Corona Commission estimated that the pandemic and infection control measures would lead to a reduction in Norway’s gross domestic product of NOK 330 billion from 2020 to 2023, compared with how the economy would have done without the corona pandemic.

“As the effect of the vaccination is that most of us can live normal lives, we think that the money we have spent on vaccines is a very good investment,” Nakstad noted.

To date, 4,229,770 people have received the first dose of the corona vaccine in Norway, 3,796,698 people have received the second dose, and 401,398 have received the third dose.
