Who will be vaccinated when?

If you live in Sweden you will be offered free Covid-19 vaccination. You do not need to be a Swedish citizen to get the vaccine.

Vaccination is the most effective way to avoid becoming seriously ill or dying from Covid-19. Vaccination also helps to reduce the spread of infection.

Even if you have had Covid-19, it is recommended that be vaccinated with three doses. Those who have had Covid-19 have developed protection against the disease, but we do not currently know how long this protection will last.

Pregnant women

If you are pregnant, you can get vaccinated throughout your pregnancy. However, the Public Health Agency recommends that vaccination be given after pregnancy week 12, unless there are other reasons. For example, you may have a medical risk factor such as obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes or are over 35 years of age.

Most people who become ill with Covid-19 experience mild symptoms of illness and do not need to seek medical care. But pregnant women have a slightly higher risk of becoming seriously ill. Vaccination against Covid-19 is recommended for all pregnant women, as the vaccines provide good protection against serious illness and reduce the risk of early delivery.
