People who do not have time or can not be vaccinated with Astra Zeneca's vaccine will be offered Pfizer's or Moderna's vaccine as a second dose.

The Swedish Public Health Agency has decided to discontinue the use of Astra Zeneca's vaccine as the group 65 years and older is fully vaccinated and the vaccine is only given to the elderly.

- The majority of our residents over the age of 65 are now fully vaccinated.

This makes it possible for us to phase out AstraZeneca's vaccine as we cannot use it for other age groups, says Tina Mansson Söderlund, vaccine coordinator in the Gävleborg Region, on the region's site.

August 31st is the last day to get vaccinated with dose 2 of Astra Zeneca's vaccine.
