Corona Vaccine

The City of Oslo will provide the Coronavirus vaccine for free to every resident in Oslo.

Residents under the age of 18

Residents over the age of 12 can now make use of the drop-in vaccination in their district or register online to take the vaccine. To register you need to have Bank-ID.

It is recommended that residents under the age of 18 are offered the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine. 

Young people between 12 and 15 years

We will offer residents born in 2006–2008 one dose of the vaccine. Those who have had Corona will not need the vaccine. 

Consent and self-declaration from parents

Everyone under the age of 16 must have the consent of their parents to receive the corona vaccine. You must bring the consent form to the vaccination appointment. The self-declaration form must also be completed by a parent in advance of vaccination.

Residents with severe immune deficiency 

Residents with severe immune deficiency will be offered dose 3 of the corona vaccine. This is available through drop-in at the same vaccine center where you got dose 2. Remember to bring documentation that shows you are in the target group. Valid documentation can be a letter from your doctor or proof of medication use in the form of a prescription, an e-prescription or packaging with your name and a dated label from a pharmacy. You can find more information about documentation requirements at FHI.no. The interval between dose 2 and dose 3 should be minimum 4 weeks. 

Booster dose for residents above the age of 65 

Residents over 65 will be offered dose 3 as a booster dose. The districts will set up an appointment for you. The interval between dose 2 and dose 3 for this group should be at least 6 months. Pfizer will be the only vaccine offered as a booster dose. 

Notice will be given in stages according to the following order of priority: 
1. 85 years and older
2. 75-84 years
3. 65-74 years.

It is possible for residents over 85 to drop-in for the booster dose. You have to go to the same vaccine center where you got dose 2. Eventually, it will also be possible for those between 65-85 years to drop-in to take the booster dose.

If you are going to take the flu vaccine, you must make sure that 1 week passes between you taking the flu vaccine and the corona vaccine.
