Soite will distribute an information bulletin about the coronavirus vaccinations to the households in the region — save it!
Central Ostrobothnia Joint Municipal Authority for Social and Health Services Soite will this week distribute a bulletin to all households in its area about how the coronavirus vaccinations will be organized in the region. Please save the bulletin and follow the progress of the vaccinations in Soite’s channels online and in social media. We will also publish information in local media about which target groups are in turn to be vaccinated.
Soite will begin mass vaccinations of the population at the beginning of February, starting from week 5. The vaccination timetable proceeds according to Finland’s corona strategy. Mass coronavirus vaccinations of the population will be organized as quickly as possible when the availability of vaccines allows for this. We will inform separately about the vaccination time tables for different groups in Soite’s channels on the internet, in social media and in the local media. You have to book an appointment for a vaccination beforehand either electronically or by phone. The channels for booking a time will be opened in week 5.
Initially, the availability of vaccination appointments will be limited due to the limited amount of corona vaccines available to us. The number of available vaccination appointments will increase when more corona vaccines are distributed to Soite’s area.
After elderly people who are over the age of 80 and live at home have been vaccinated, the corona vaccinations will continue with persons aged 70 to 79. After this, we will begin vaccinations of persons who are younger than 70 and who belong to a risk group. Clients within Soite’s home care service will be vaccinated during visits by the home care services.
You can follow the progress of the coronavirus vaccinations in Soite’s are on Soite’s corona website.
The corona vaccination is voluntary and free of charge for everyone. Coronavirus vaccines offer effective protection against the coronavirus disease and particularly its severe forms. According to current knowledge, coronavirus vaccines are also effective against mutations of the coronavirus.
