The most impor­tant part is to fol­low the hygiene rec­om­men­da­tions and seek out coro­n­avirus test­ing if you are not yet vac­ci­nat­ed. The region­al rec­om­men­da­tions regard­ing the coro­n­avirus epi­dem­ic with­in Soite’s area are list­ed on Soite’s coro­n­avirus 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 

Cen­tral Ostrobothnia’s hos­pi­tal dis­trict has now reached an 80 per­cent vac­ci­na­tion cov­er­age regard­ing per­sons who have received two coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions. Of the munic­i­pal­i­ties in the area, only Per­ho still has a vac­ci­na­tion cov­er­age low­er than 80 per­cent regard­ing per­sons who are aged 12 and old­er and have received two dos­es of the coro­n­avirus vaccine.According to Soite’s sta­tis­tics, the per­cent­age of per­sons aged 12 and old­er who have received two dos­es of vac­cine is 81.3 per­cent in the Soite area. The sta­tis­ti­cal read­ings in the Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Welfare’s vac­ci­na­tion cov­er­age map are updat­ed with a slight delay and accord­ing to it, the vac­ci­na­tion per­cent­age is 80.4% in the entire hos­pi­tal dis­trict (includ­ing Reisjärvi). 

The most recent vac­ci­na­tion data has been added in Soite’s coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion indi­ca­tor! The vac­ci­na­tion indi­ca­tor now focus­es on sta­tis­tics for those who have received two dos­es of vaccine. 

Of the entire pop­u­la­tion in the area, 75% have received their first dose and 69.5% their second. 

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, sec­ond and third 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 six weeks have passed since the first vaccination.

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.
