  1. Myocarditis in boys and young men can occur more often after the Spikevax vaccine from Moderna

    Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) is a rare side effect of mRNA vaccines. The side effect is observed especially in boys and young men and mainly after the second dose. Updated knowledge indicates that this occurs more often with the use of Moderna's vaccine Spikevax than BioNTech / Pfizer's vaccine Comirnaty. This seems to apply regardless of which mRNA vaccine was given as the first dose.


  2. Booster dose for the elderly and nursing home residents

    The Government has, in accordance with the advice of the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH), decided to offer an additional dose (booster dose) to the older age groups. It is recommended to start with vaccination for the age group 85 years and older as well as nursing home residents. The additional dose can be given no earlier than 6 months after receiving their second vaccine dose. The offer to the age group 85 years and above will be followed by booster vaccination in stages of the age group 75-84 and then the age group 65-74.
