People with severe immune deficiency 

People with severe immune deficiency are advised a primary vaccination series consisting of 3 doses, as well as one booster dose 3 months after dose 3, ie a fourth dose.

For primary vaccination, an interval of 3 or 4 weeks between doses is recommended, depending on the preparation. The booster dose can be given as early as 3 months after the last dose in the primary vaccination series (after dose 3).

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health emphasizes that most people with severe immune deficiency will have achieved a good level of protection if they have followed the current vaccination recommendations, but that some may still benefit from additional doses (in addition to 3 + 1). An assessment of the need for additional doses including vaccine type and dose interval must be made on an individual basis in consultation with a General Practitioner (GP) or specialist.

In cases where the GP or specialist considers that there is a need for additional doses in addition to the 4 doses already recommended, documentation from the GP or specialist must be brought to the vaccine center.

Remember to bring documentation that shows that you are in the target group. Valid documentation can be a letter from the specialist healthcare service, or proof of medication use in the form of a prescription, e-prescription or packaging with the name and dated label from the pharmacy. On FHI's website, you can find more information about which documentation requirements apply to you.

Vaccination if you have already had covid-19

On FHI’s website you can find detailed information about what applies to you if you have been vaccinated and have already had covid-19. Relevant topics you can read about include vaccine booster doses, level of protection against infection and the covid-19 certificate.

You can access your digital COVID-19 certificate on Helsenorge.no if you have a national ID number or D-number. You can use BankID, BankID on mobile or similar solutions to log in. There are other ways to get the COVID-19 certificate if you do not have a national ID number or D-number. 

Your COVID-19 certificate can be used as documentary proof of vaccination, that you have had COVID-19 disease, or a negative test result based on a test taken by a healthcare professional. 

For people who for various reasons cannot log on to Helsenorge.no, the vaccine center in Bydel Bjerke and Bydel Vestre Aker offers printing services so that non-digital users can get a printout of the COVID-19 certificate. You must show up in person to use this service.
