Suppose a woman has a disease or condition that may increase the risk of serious illness. In that case, vaccination is recommended even if she is pregnant. It concerns

  • Chronic cardiovascular disease, including stroke and high blood pressure.
  • Chronic lung diseases such as COPD and severe and unstable asthma.
  • Other conditions that lead to impaired lung function or impaired ability to cough.
  • Chronic liver or kidney failure.
  • Type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
  • Diseases that affect the immune system due to illness or treatment.

Pregnancy in women over 35 or with a BMI over 30 is always considered a high-risk pregnancy.

Therefore, they should also be offered vaccination against covid-19. There is no reason to give a vaccine during the first trimester of pregnancy. Thus, vaccination is recommended after the 12th week of pregnancy. Logistics and routines for prescribing vaccinations take place according to regional guidelines.

At present, the Swedish Public Health Agency is awaiting a general recommendation for vaccination for all pregnant women but is following the development of knowledge.

Children 12-15 years are now offered vaccination.

Vaccination is voluntary and requires the consent of all guardians. Vaccination occurs primarily at school, but it is also possible to get vaccinated with any vaccinator. The guardians receive information about vaccination through the school, a form for vaccination, and a health declaration. blankett för samtycke till vaccination och en hälsodeklaration.

The Swedish Public Health Agency recommends general vaccination against covid-19 from age 12 in Sweden. Pfizer / Biontech's vaccine Comirnatyn is given to children aged 12-15.

For children between 12 and 17 years of age, a minimum of 7 days between vaccinations against covid-19 and other vaccines, including seasonal flu, is recommended.

The vaccination creates protection against serious illness. After vaccination, the body's immune system builds up protection against covid-19. But it is not certain that everyone who is vaccinated will receive comprehensive protection. This applies to all vaccines, not just those against covid-19. You still run a lower risk of becoming seriously ill. Studies are ongoing to determine how long the protection after the covid-19 vaccine lasts and whether we will need refill doses.

Additional doses are needed to provide reasonable protection against covid-19. Depending on which vaccine is used, it takes different lengths of time. See the list of questions below. 

Suppose you have received Dose 1 of the Covid-19 vaccine. In that case, you can book an appointment for Dose 2 directly on the website within the current time interval, four weeks after the first dose.

Vaccinationen mot covid-19 skyddar dig från att bli allvarligt sjuk. Men vaccinationens effekt på smittspridning har inte studerats i tillräcklig omfattning för att vi ska veta hur mycket vaccinationen bidrar till att stoppa smittan. Med nuvarande kunskap är det viktigt att vi använder alla tillgängliga åtgärder samtidigt.

För att bromsa smittspridningen behöver vi därför, under tiden som vaccinationerna pågår, fortsätta att följa de allmänna råden: stanna hemma vid symtom, håll avstånd till varandra och tvätta händerna ofta.

It is common to experience side effects after vaccination against covid-19. Examples of side effects are fatigue, fever, chills, muscle and joint pain and headaches. These reactions are a natural reaction of the body's immune system, and you can take the second dose. You can read more about side effects here.

In specific cases, a doctor should decide whether you should take the second dose of the vaccine. That is if you:

  • needed medical attention after receiving the first dose of covid-19 vaccine
  • have previously had covid-19 and after receiving the first dose of vaccine against covid-19 had severe side effects in the form of high fever and malaise for more than a day.

In these cases, contact your healthcare or health centre before receiving dose two. It is also vital that you or your healthcare provider report the suspected side effects. You can find information on how to do it at The Medical Products Agency's website.

At present, we recommend that people who have had covid-19 be vaccinated with two doses, even if they may already have some protection after the disease. Two doses give you an enhanced and extended protection against covid-19.

Anyone who has reached the age of 12 and older can book an appointment for vaccination. The vaccination requires the consent of all guardians. The forms can be found here.

 

After being vaccinated with both doses, T cells are created in the body. The immune response usually takes about 3-4 weeks. You can already obtain a small number of T cells 2-3 weeks after the first dose, but not enough to read from a venous T cell test. Read more about T-cells here 

 

Risk groups according to the Swedish Public Health Agency

  • Kronisk hjärt- och kärlsjukdom, inklusive stroke och hypertoni (högt blodtryck).
  • Chronic lung diseases such as COPD and severe and unstable asthma.
  • Other conditions that lead to impaired lung function or impaired coughing and secretion stagnation (for example, extreme obesity, neuromuscular diseases or multiple disabilities).
  • Chronic liver or kidney failure.
  • Type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
  • Conditions that severely weaken the immune system due to an illness or treatment.
  • Down syndrome

The number of available slots depends entirely on the availability of vaccines in your area. As soon as we have access to vaccines, we release more times based on the order of priority.
