A total of 30,742 vaccine doses have been administered to children under 18 years of age. 13-year-old Eirik Lyngstad is struggling with a weakened immune system and is relieved and happy to get the vaccine now.

Lyngstad told NTB that he can now think less about the threat of corona. However, he promises to continue to follow hygiene rules. He received his first dose of the Pfizer vaccine at the Bjerke district vaccine center on Tuesday.

His father, Roy Ove Lyngstad, asked his GP to speed up the vaccination. Two weeks before school started, they were told that Eirik would be vaccinated today.

“We really wanted this vaccine and feel a certain relief now. My wife (Eirik’s mother) and I both work in the health care system and are fully vaccinated. We are not so worried about Eirik when it comes to infection, but it kind of simmers in the back of our minds all the time,” he said.

Vaccination overview

A total of 1,169 first doses have been administered to children in the age group 0–15 years, while 626 have received two doses. In the age group 16–17, 25,078 received their first dose, while 3,869 received their second dose.

In June, the FHI recommended that children in the risk groups receive the corona vaccine, even though the risk of severe COVID-19 is low among children and young people. 

That happened after the European Medicines Agency (EMA) approved the vaccine from BioNTech / Pfizer for the age group 12-15 years.

The FHI estimated that between 2,000 and 3,000 children and young people between the ages of 12 and 15 would be offered the corona vaccine. The vaccine was approved in February for those over 16 years of age.
