In all, Sörmland is receiving approximately 2,000 fewer doses of Moderna than planned next week. According to Magnus Johansson, the region is preparing to vaccinate more than 10,000 people per week, but the volumes of vaccines being delivered are currently not reaching the same level. During this week, Sörmland receives about 6,000 doses, next week 5,300.
The second stage lasts longer
At the moment, the first phase of vaccination is still underway in Sörmland, and next week, the second phase will begin in secret, including for those 65 years of age or older. However, the second phase will take longer than planned according to the calculations of the new district, it should be completely ready in May.
People included in Phase 2 will be given priority according to age, with the oldest vaccinated first. However, people under the age of 65 can be vaccinated early because the Astra Zeneca vaccine is not recommended for the elderly.
It sends the information
The district will send postcards to all families of people over the age of 65 with information about vaccination. Each age group will receive a letter when it is time to make an appointment. Appointments can be made via 1177.se and via the area reservation phone.
