Students moving here can get their second COVID-19 vaccine in Borås
Liisa Karlsson, Vaccination Coordinator at the Arena Clinic in Borås, said, “At present, we are in a good position and have plenty of vaccine supply and will not turn away anyone who books an appointment for dose 1 or dose 2. However, it is important to know that, when booking via 1177.se, it is not evident at this time which vaccine is the one that will be available at the vaccination clinic on the date you booked.”
From 1 September, the intention is that the booking system on 1177 will have the capability to book an appointment for the second dose of the correct vaccine, which is to say, the same as was received for the first dose. More information on how this will be done will come later in August via 1177.se.
For those students who received their first vaccine dose elsewhere and already have a booked time at the first vaccination clinic for their second dose, it is also important to cancel this time in connection with booking an appointment in Borås in order to give clinics a chance to make available cancelled times to others who wish to get vaccinated.
