Let’s main­tain the region’s excep­tion­al coro­n­avirus sit­u­a­tion by fol­low­ing the hygiene rec­om­men­da­tions, the region­al rec­om­men­da­tions and by seek­ing out coro­n­avirus test­ing even if you have only mild symp­toms indica­tive of coro­naEven peo­ple who have already received the vac­cine must seek out test­ing if they get symptoms.

The key fig­ures in the sit­u­a­tion­al pic­ture have been updated:

  • The number of coronavirus cases during the last 14 days: 3
  • The incidence of infections during the last 14 days/100.000 citizens: 3.9
  • One COVID-19 patient is currently being treated at Central Ostrobothnia’s central hospital.
  • 0.5 % of the coronavirus tests are positive.

  • The epidemiological situation in Central Ostrobothnia: base level


Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions are pro­gress­ing well with­in Soite’s area. Cur­rent­ly, vac­ci­na­tion is open for all res­i­dents over the age of 16 as well as per­sons aged 12 to 15 whobelong to risk group 1 or 2.

There are a good num­ber of vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ments avail­able and more are added all the time. The goal is to add appoint­ments for at least one week at a time. If you book an appoint­ment now, the sec­ond vac­ci­na­tion is giv­en after 12 weeks. An effec­tive pro­tec­tion against a coro­n­avirus infec­tion is then achieved in the autumn (more infor­ma­tion on the effi­ca­cy of vac­cines on the web­site of the Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare THL). The coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions take us towards a more nor­mal life — one vac­ci­na­tion at a time! A vac­cine gives you pro­tec­tion against the seri­ous forms of the coro­n­avirus dis­ease and if you are vac­ci­nat­ed you help pro­tect others.

You can book an appoint­ment for vac­ci­na­tion elec­tron­i­cal­ly via Soite’sOma­hoito ser­vice online. An appoint­ment may be booked elec­tron­i­cal­ly via the Oma­hoito ser­vice for an ado­les­cent if the ado­les­cent has the codes that are need­ed for elec­tron­ic iden­ti­fi­ca­tion (online bank­ing codes or a mobile cer­tifi­cate). If elec­tron­ic iden­ti­fi­ca­tion is not pos­si­ble, an appoint­ment should be booked by phone. In the future, we strive to make phone book­ing more available.

Appoint­ment book­ing by phone will open anew on Tues­day 13th of July 2021 at 12 noon and more appoint­ments will also become avail­able in the Oma­hoito elec­tron­ic appoint­ment book­ing sys­temon Tues­day at 12 noon.The Oma­hoito ser­vice is open 24/7. Days on which appoint­ment times are avail­able will be marked with green in the web calendar.

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