28 September: The City of Oslo to offer a choice of coronavirus vaccines
Press release: From Wednesday 29 September, residents over the age of 16 can choose which mRNA vaccine they want to receive for their first and second doses. The same applies to people with impaired immune systems who are due to receive a third dose. This decision was taken after the Norwegian Institute of Public Health informed district medical officers that adults can choose the type of vaccine they wish to receive wherever this can be arranged by the relevant local authority, as Norway currently has a good supply of both types of mRNA vaccine (BioNtech/Pfizer and Moderna).
