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.
