As many people request a fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, the Health Center is hosting an open house for the next two weeks for people over the age of 80 and those with underlying illness. Vaccinations will be given at Álfabakkir 14a on the second floor, Vísir reports.
Over the weekend, there were reports of a surge in illness in people diagnosed with COVID. Two people died of COVID on the weekend. According to a statement given to Frétta blaðið by Már Kristjánsson, the doctor in charge of the infectious disease department at Landspitali, 34 individuals are currently being treated for COVID-19 in various Landspitali offices.
People over the age of 80 who have not been vaccinated for the fourth time are most likely to be hospitalized for this disease. Therefore, groups are encouraged to make vaccination appointments.
Vaccinations are given in public areas and the building requires a mask. Pfizer vaccines will be provided, but Janssen vaccines are available on request. To receive the fourth vaccination, you must be at least four months after the third vaccination.
More than three-quarters of Icelanders are fully vaccinated, Ma says.
