Cur­rent Coro­n­avirus Infor­ma­tion in Soite’s Area August 23rd 2021

The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

Two new coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite’s area after the ones we informed about dur­ing the weekend.

The key fig­ures in the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture have been updated:

  • The number of coronavirus cases during the last 14 days: 59 (a week ago 58)
  • The incidence of infections during the last 14 days/100 000 citizens: 76 (a week ago 75)
  • No patients are being treated for coronavirus infection at the Central Ostrobothnia Central Hospital.
  • 1.2% of the coronavirus tests are positive. Last week, a total of about 2331 coronavirus tests were taken.
  • The traceability of the chains of infections is 78 %
  • The number of coronavirus infections that have been confirmed in Soite since the pandemic began: 575
  • The epidemiological situation in Central Ostrobothnia: acceleration phase

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.

Vac­ci­na­tions – pos­si­ble to get the sec­ond vac­cine dose ear­li­er than planned on walk-in vac­ci­na­tion days

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.

So far 45.3% of the newest tar­get group, res­i­dents aged 12 to 15, have been vac­ci­nat­ed. Soite will soon vis­it schools and oth­er edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions in the area to vac­ci­nate young peo­ple. The schools will inform stu­dents and par­ents in more detail about the dates. Nat­u­ral­ly, young peo­ple can also come to get vac­ci­nat­ed dur­ing appoint­ment-free walk-in vac­ci­na­tion days that are open to the gen­er­al public.

You can fol­low how the vac­ci­na­tion pro­gress­es in the area with the help of Soite’s coro­na vac­ci­na­tion indi­ca­tor, which is updat­ed on Mondays.

There are a good num­ber of vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments avail­able. You can book an appoint­ment online or by phone, but in the future vac­ci­na­tions will be done main­ly dur­ing walk-in vac­ci­na­tion days with­out appoint­ment booking.

  • Appointment booking by phone for all age groups: 06 828 7488 open Tuesday 24th of August 12 noon to 3 pm. This is the last Tuesday that appointment booking by phone is available on this number. In the future, vaccinations will be concentrated to walk-in vaccination days without appointment booking.

Soite orga­nizes 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.
