Information before the scheduling
The vaccine is taken in two doses with a period of time between the doses. The amount of time between the doses is dictated by which vaccine you are receiving.
You must schedule appointments for the vaccinations. A representative can help with the scheduling by phone, but not through the digital scheduling system where a personal e-ID is required.
When scheduling a vaccination, you will be asked to answer some questions in a health declaration before vaccination. This applies in either case whether you schedule an appointment digitally or by phone. A representative who helps you schedule an appointment over the phone needs to know the answers to the questions.
The questions about your health concern severe allergies or previous reactions to vaccination that required medical care, whether you bleed easily, if you are pregnant, and if you have taken another vaccine recently.
These groups are currently being vaccinated
If you are 18 years old or older, you can schedule your vaccination appointment.
If you are 18 years old or older and you are pregnant, you should be 12+0 weeks pregnant before you get vaccinated.

How to schedule the second dose
Those who schedule the first dose through 1177.se must book the second dose in the same manner. This should take place after the first dose has been administered. When taking the first dose, you will receive a vaccination card stating which vaccine you have received and how long you should wait until you take the second dose. Bring the vaccination card to your second vaccination.
Those who schedule the first dose through the telephone service can schedule both appointments at once.

If you do not have a Swedish national identity number, please contact your closest healthcare centre.
Access to vaccines
The vaccinations are carried out in a number of places in the county, in all municipalities.
It is the availability of vaccines that determines how many places and how many appointments are available to book.
When a vaccination site is fully booked, the location no longer appears in the list of options in the appointment scheduling system. The vaccination site appears again in the list when more vaccines have been delivered and new times have opened up. Vaccines are delivered weekly.
If you are unable to travel to your vaccination appointment
You can book transport from your home to the vaccination site and back, free of charge. The offer is only valid if you do not have the opportunity to get to the vaccination site yourself or arrange for help to get there by other means. This is only valid from the address where you are registered or permanently resided, to a vaccination site in the municipality where you reside.
First schedule your vaccination appointment and if possible, choose a weekday vaccination appointment between 08:00–17:00. Then call +46 (0)26-15 03 00 and select the button selection to Book transport. Tell them you are getting vaccinated against COVID-19. Booking is open weekdays 8:00-17:00.
The telephone service is available in Swedish and English. A representative can call and book transport on your behalf. Information about interpreting services can be found via 1177.se/Gavleborg/otherlanguages
The transport can be booked no earlier than 14 days ahead of the day of vaccination, and no later than 12.00 on the day before the vaccination.
If you have COVID-19 symptoms
It is important that you do not travel to the vaccination site if you have cold or flu symptoms. If so, you should stay home and reschedule your time.
You are able to cancel or reschedule an appointment through the booking confirmation you received by text message. The confirmation contains a link to the cancellation page.
If you scheduled an appointment by telephone, please use the same number to cancel the appointment, +46(0)26-15 03 00.
Please remember to cancel your transport to the vaccination site at +46(0)26-15 03 00 if you arranged for one.
Common side effects after vaccination include mild fever, cold and/or muscle aches. You may also experience mild soreness and redness on the skin where you received the injection.
If you experience side effects that worry you, contact your health centre or call 1177 for medical advice. For health information in languages other than Swedish, call +46 (0)8-123 680 00.
You can report your side effects to healthcare.
