The cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of infection

One new coro­n­avirus case has been con­firmed in Soite’s area The infec­tion is linked to the chain of infec­tion in Skelleft­eå. 12 infec­tions and 2 fur­ther infec­tions have come to Soite’s area from the Skelleft­eå chain, in total 14 infec­tions. The pos­i­tive coro­na tests are being ana­lyzed at the Finnish Insti­tute for Health and Wel­fare in order to find out if the ill­ness is caused by a mutat­ed virus and we are wait­ing for the results. A total of 41 peo­ple have been placed in quar­an­tine in rela­tion to the Skelleft­eå infections.

No patients with COVID-19 are cur­rent­ly being treat­ed at the Cen­tral Ostro­both­nia Cen­tral Hospital.

Over the past 14 days, a total of 18 coro­n­avirus cas­es have been con­firmed in Soite and the inci­dence of infec­tions dur­ing the last 14 days is cur­rent­ly 23 /100 000 cit­i­zens The num­ber of coro­n­avirus infec­tions that have been con­firmed in Soite since the pan­dem­ic began is now 193.


Coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions of the elder­ly are pro­gress­ing with­in Soite’s area. 96 per­cent of the res­i­dents at around-the-clock care home units have now been vac­ci­nat­ed. We will open the appoint­ment book­ing to coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tions for elder­ly per­sons above the age of 80 who live at home and their infor­mal care­givers as well as oth­er elder­ly per­sons (over the age of 70, e.g. spous­es) who live in the same house­hold next week on Tues­day 16th of Feb­ru­ary at 12 noon. The appoint­ment book­ing will be opened every Tues­day at 12 noon as long as we have vac­cine dos­es available.

You can book an appoint­ment for coro­na vac­ci­na­tion either elec­tron­i­cal­ly or by phone:

  • Opens Tuesdays at 12 noon as long as there are appointments available. If you call during other times, you will hear a recorded message. You can also book an appointment for an elderly person by phone.
  •      You have to log in to the Omahoito service with your own bank codes (or other secure identification) before you can book an appointment for yourself. You can book an appointment for another person if you have made an agreement regarding this. Read more: (in Finnish)

The elec­tron­ic appoint­ment book­ing runs more smooth­ly and we rec­om­mend that you book your appoint­ment online if pos­si­ble. If an infor­mal care­giv­er or part­ner who lives in the same house­hold is to be vac­ci­nat­ed at the same time, the appoint­ment book­ing must be done by phone for both.

Please make sure that your elder­ly rel­a­tives get a vac­ci­na­tion appoint­ment and get to the vac­ci­na­tion site.

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.
