11 October: Here you can read about how to get vaccinated. If you have not yet reached the age of 18 years, your parents/guardians must sign a consent form. Vaccination is both voluntary and free of charge. Vaccinations are offered from turning 12 years of age.

You who are 12-18-years-old

To make an appointment to receive your vaccination, you need to have the facilities to log in. NB! it is the person who will be vaccinated who needs to log in using their personal code number (personnummer) or digital ID. Parents are not to use their log in since that will cause an error in the medical records.

To log in to 1177.se you need a Swedish personal code number (personnummer) and a digital ID, through Band-id, Freja e-id plus or Telia e-legitimation. This is how you log in at 1177.se

Consent from legal guardian is required

From turning 12 years of age until the day you turn 18, you need your legal guardian/-s consent to receive your vaccination. A consent form is sent to all families with children ranging from 12-18 years of age. Both legal guardians need to sign the consent form unless only one parent or other person holds the legal guardianship. In that case one signature is required. The signed consent form and the health declaration, which has been posted to you in advance, are both to be brought to the appointment for vaccination.

You need to be 15 years old to go through a maturity assessment. The appointment is digital and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
