More and more vaccinations since health centres took over responsibility
More and more are falling victim to covid-19 and the number of hospital admissions is increasing. At the same time, in some places fewer people have been vaccinated, and this also applies to people not born in Sweden.
The vaccination rate has gone up since health centres took over the responsibility from private actors.

– But we're still working hard at Vilan to increase the number of people vaccinated at Charlottesborg. There are fewer there who take their jab, says Kristina Särne, manager at Vilan health centre.
In Skåne as a whole 90 or more per cent of the over-60s have had two doses of vaccine. In the 18-39 age-group the figure is 65-69 per cent.
At Charlottesborg the figure is even lower. On 11th November only 61 per cent had had their first dose.
– We've made a directed drive in our area by twice having drop-in vaccination at Erikshjälpen and on 1st December we plan to be at Charlottesborg.
– Our staff are doing a great job, both with vaccination and with information to our patients about the importance of getting vaccinated, to increase vaccination coverage.
Linda Björklund, manager at Näsby health centre, agrees.
– Our area has stepped up coverage considerably since we were given the job instead of giving it to private actors.
– I've raised the question of how we should work in the future to reach as many as possible with information about the importance of getting vaccinated. 1177 is one way to go, but for me it's also important to offer a drop-in service too. We've stood outside Coop where everyone could just pop in. It's a good way to get more people to get vaccinated, she says.
