AstraZeneca’s vac­cine is replaced with oth­er vac­cines in Soite – already sched­uled vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments will not be cancelled

In accor­dance with a rec­om­men­da­tion from the Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare THL, Soite inter­rupts vac­ci­na­tion with AstraZeneca’s vac­cine. When it comes to vac­ci­na­tions that have been sched­uled for next week (22nd – 28th of March), the AstraZeneca vac­cine will be replaced with Pfizer’s and Moderna’s mRNA vac­cines. This is made pos­si­ble through sched­ul­ing vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments depend­ing on the num­ber of vac­cines dur­ing the next weeks.

In Soite, approx­i­mate­ly 300 vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments have been sched­uled for next week for per­sons under the age of 70 who belong to risk group 1. The change of vac­cine does not require mea­sures by the clients.

Vac­ci­na­tions of per­sons over the age of 70 will con­tin­ue as planned.
