Tomorrow and Monday, the country’s three hospitals will open drop-in vaccination sessions with no booking required, reports corona.fo.

According to the latest findings from Denmark, only 0.08 percent of fully vaccinated people are subsequently infected with Covid-19.

Out of the roughly 25,000 fully vaccinated people in the Faroes, only 0.04 percent have been infected after receiving the second shot.

Chief medical officer Lars Fodgaard Møller said earlier this week that the few vaccinated people who do get infected experience significantly milder symptoms and are also much less likely to pass on the virus than their unvaccinated counterparts.

Drop-in times

The National Hospital, Tórshavn 

Saturday 17 July 4.30pm-5.30pm

Monday 19 July 6.30pm-7.30pm

Klaksvík Hospital

Monday 19 July 5.00pm-6.00pm

Suðuroy Hospital

Monday 19 July 3.30pm-4.30pm.

People who have received the first shot of the vaccine are required to wait at least 21 days until they can receive the second shot.

Plenty of vaccine doses are available across the country, and those who cannot make the drop-in times are urged to book a regular vaccination appointment here.

If you require assistance with filling in the forms, call 304545 on weekdays between 2pm and 4pm. Questions can also be directed to the Corona hotline (304040), open Mondays-Thursdays 10am-3pm.
