Update: 2,502,629 people in Norway have received two doses of the corona vaccine

A total of 3,797,335 people have been vaccinated with the first dose of the corona vaccine in Norway, the FHI’s statistics show on Friday. Furthermore, 2,502,629 people have received the second dose.

Thus, 70.4% of the Norwegian population has received the first dose, while 46.4% of the population has been fully vaccinated.

On Thursday, 9,371 people received the first dose, and 95,551 people received the second dose, according to the FHI.

The first dose of the corona vaccine (Pfizer and BioNTech) was administered in Norway on December 27, 2020. On January 15, the first dose of the Moderna vaccine was administered, and on February 7, the AstraZeneca vaccine was introduced. 

On March 11, the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine was suspended. Then, on May 12, the Norwegian government announced that it would be permanently withdrawn from the country’s vaccination program due to the risk of severe blood clots.

The Janssen vaccine from the manufacturer Johnson & Johnson has also been removed from the Norwegian vaccine program following reports of serious side effects. However, volunteers are allowed to request it if strict health criteria are met.
