New vaccination appointments will be released at the end of this week. And this time, the appointments will be released in the evening.
So far, vaccination appointments for 50-59-year-olds have been released on Mondays at 9 am. The 20,000 that were released on Monday morning quickly ran out.
"Every adult will be offered a vaccination appointment"
Region Skåne states that more appointments will be gradually released. On Thursday night, it's time again.
Then another 26,000 times will be released for people aged 50-59 years.
In total, just over 172,000 people are included in this age group. With Thursday's release, 34 per cent of the group has been reached.
– I’m glad that there is a high willingness to vaccinate. We have limited vaccine. Therefore, appointments run out quickly, says Per Hagstam, Vaccine Coordinator at Region Skåne in a press release.
– In June, we expect larger vaccine deliveries. After week 23, it will look much better. Every adult will be offered a vaccination appointment, says Per Hagstam.
To date, close to 40 per cent, i.e. over 430,000 people in Skåne have been vaccinated with a first dose.
More vaccination sites will open. Six new ones were opened on Monday, including in Åhus. Next week another four will open.
In mid-June, during phase four there will be 60 sites up and running in Skåne, i.e. for the general public aged 18-59. That group includes 600,000 people in Skåne.
