All care centre residents vaccinated this week

Administering first COVID-19 dose going better than expected in Denmark

According to the regional authority Danske Regioner, all care centre residents who want a COVID-19 vaccination will have received the first dose this week.

All 900 care centres nationwide will be better protected against the COVID-19, much to the glee of Stephanie Lose, the head of Danske Regioner.

“It’s a big step towards a more normal world, where we don’t need to fear our elderly citizens contracting COVID-19,” said Lose.

Moreover, the vaccination of elderly care workers, emergency response and hospital staff is continuing as planned.
