After the removal of the astrogenic vaccine from the vaccine program in Norway, those receiving the vaccine dose were given a second dose of the MRNA vaccine.
In Norway, and in the European Union and the EEA in general, recipients of this vaccine are considered fully vaccinated.
But this is not the case in some countries, including Thailand.
Denmark will therefore provide an additional dose of vaccine for those who have been cross-vaccinated with Astrogenega. This way, you are fully vaccinated with an MRNA vaccine.
However, this does not currently apply in Norway.
– Good protection is available to those vaccinated with AstraZeneca and MRNA vaccine. Based on the vaccine’s professional assessments, there is no reason to give a third dose, says FHI’s Director of Infection Control, Khair Bukolm.
However, Bukolm says there may be new estimates in the near future.
– We will see in the future if the rules of different countries are considered to be fully vaccinated, which will lead to further estimates, Bucolm tells TV2.
– The FHI has not yet made estimates of a third-dose vaccine for those receiving the Astrazoneca and MRNA vaccines.
