Please seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing even if you only have mild symptoms!

Please seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing even if you only have very mild symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus. Com­mon symp­toms that fit the coro­n­avirus are e.g. fever, sore throat, cough, headache, mus­cle ache, fatigue and dis­tur­bances when it comes to smell or taste. A coro­n­avirus test may, how­ev­er, be pos­i­tive even if only one or two symp­toms occur.

Please seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing even if you have already been vac­ci­nat­ed against the coro­n­avirus. A vac­ci­na­tion pro­tects against the severe form of the coro­n­avirus dis­ease, but a per­son who has been vac­ci­nat­ed may still become ill and infect others.

You can eas­i­ly book an appoint­ment for coro­n­avirus test­ing through the Omaolo ser­vice online or via Soite’s Coro­n­avirus Helpline 06 828 7499 / via the children’s hos­pi­tal, phone 06 826 4444.


The coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions of the cit­i­zens are pro­gress­ing well in Soite’s area. The vac­ci­na­tions of the cit­i­zens with­in Soite are pro­gress­ing with regards to all per­sons over the age of 12.

Soite’s coro­na vac­ci­na­tion indi­ca­tor has been updat­ed! So far, 83.1% of the res­i­dents aged 12 and old­er in the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Hos­pi­tal Dis­trict have received their first vac­cine dose, and 66% have received their sec­ond dose. Of the entire pop­u­la­tion in the area, 71% have received their first dose and 55% their second.

There are a good num­ber of vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments avail­able. Vac­ci­na­tions will be done main­ly dur­ing walk-in vac­ci­na­tion days with­out appoint­ment book­ing, which means you can come to a coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion when it suits you best.

First as well as sec­ond dos­es will be admin­is­tered dur­ing the walk-in-days. At a walk-in vac­ci­na­tion, it is pos­si­ble to arrange for the sec­ond dose to be giv­en ear­li­er than planned, if at least eight weeks have passed since the first vaccination.

Accord­ing to pol­i­cy by the Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare THL, it is rec­om­mend­ed that the mRNA vac­ci­na­tion series (Pfiz­er and Mod­er­na) are com­plet­ed pri­mar­i­ly using the same vac­cine. If you want to receive your sec­ond vac­cine dose on an appoint­ment-free walk-in day, check if the same vac­cine is avail­able on that day. Vac­cines avail­able on walk-in days are shown in the infor­ma­tion about the vac­ci­na­tion day.

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 a 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.
