The most impor­tant part is to fol­low the hygiene rec­om­men­da­tions and seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing if you are not yet vac­ci­nat­ed. Cur­rent rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic with­in Soite’s area are list­ed on Soite’s coro­na web­site: https://korona.soite.fi/en/recommendations/  

Those who are still unvac­ci­nat­ed should seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing imme­di­ate­ly even if they only have very mild symp­toms indica­tive of coro­n­avirus. The coro­n­avirus test result should be await­ed at home and in quar­an­tine so as not to poten­tial­ly expose oth­ers to the coro­n­avirus, for exam­ple in the workplace. 

Those who have received two dos­es should seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing if they have been exposed to a con­firmed coro­n­avirus case and are expe­ri­enc­ing symp­toms or if they are suf­fer­ing from symp­toms of a res­pi­ra­to­ry infec­tion and belong to a risk group or work in the social and health care services. 

Instruc­tions for event organizers 

Instruc­tions for event orga­niz­ers are found on Soite’s coro­n­avirus web­site: https://korona.soite.fi/en/instructions-to-event-organizers/. 

By law, the COVID-19 pass­port is intend­ed for sit­u­a­tions where there are restric­tions that have been set in place by author­i­ties in order to pre­vent the spread of the epi­dem­ic. The COVID-19 pass­port may also be used at pri­vate gath­er­ings, for exam­ple dur­ing pre-Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tions, in order to ensure the coro­n­avirus safe­ty at the event. 

Vac­ci­na­tions 

Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions are pro­gress­ing with­in Soite’s area. Vac­ci­na­tions are now pro­gress­ing with regards to all per­sons over the age of 12 who live in Soite’s area. 

Every­one aged 60 and old­er as well as per­sons old­er than 12 who belong to risk groups 1 or 2 can come and get a third coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion at Soite’s vac­ci­na­tion site if at least 6 months have passed since the sec­ond vac­cine dose. The vac­ci­na­tion infor­ma­tion is checked at the vac­ci­na­tion site and if less than 6 months have passed since the sec­ond vac­ci­na­tion, a third vac­cine dose can­not yet be given.

Why should I take the coro­n­avirus vaccine? 

  1. Coronavirus vaccines give effective protection against serious forms of COVID-19.  
  2. The vaccines also protect against the long-term effects of COVID-19, the so-called long COVID, which may cause prolonged tiredness, shortness of breath, cough and joint and chest pain.  
  3. By taking the vaccine, you can protect not only yourself but also others. The coronavirus vaccination significantly reduces the secretion of the virus and its spreading from one person to another. 
  4. The risks associated with the vaccine are significantly smaller than those associated with coronavirus infection. Link: Information about the coronavirus vaccination 
  5. With vaccinations, we can return to a more normal life and the need for restrictions is reduced. Everyone who decides to take the vaccine makes a difference.
