Coronavirus vaccines are being developed at an unprecedented rate, and an enormous amount of resources has been allocated to their development around the world.
Coronavirus vaccines are evaluated on the same quality, safety and efficacy criteria as other medicines. The authorities for medicinal products only grant a marketing authorisation to a vaccine that has been scientifically demonstrated to be both effective and safe. Safety is also monitored after the vaccine is in the market.
Age is by far the most significant risk factor for COVID-19. Therefore vaccinations will be administered to the aged first.
- Vaccinations for those turning 85 this year and those older than that were initiated on 11 February 2021.
- Vaccinations for those between 80 and 84 years of age will begin on the week of 22 February 2021
Those over 80 years of age will receive, as instructed on the national level, coronavirus vaccines developed by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna.
You always need an appointment for a coronavirus vaccination administered by Jyväskylä, Hankasalmi, and Uurainen.
In the first phase, those over 80 years of age will be vaccinated. All those over 80 will be contacted by health care services and a vaccination appointment made. At that time, appointments will also be offered to others living in the same household. If a person aged over 80 has not received a phone call from the health services by 24 February 2021, they should call their own health clinic and ask for an appointment.
The coronavirus vaccinations will proceed, as directed by the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare, starting from the most aged and moving towards ever younger people, while taking those most at risk into account.
Why the vaccinations?
The coronavirus vaccine protects you from infection by the novel coronavirus and the severe forms of illness it causes. A sufficient vaccination coverage can prevent the spread of the virus among the populace. The coronavirus vaccine is offered to the entire population free of charge. Vaccinations are always voluntary.
