Prepare for your vaccination
- You will need to have a form of ID with you (e.g. an ID card, passport or driving licence).
- If you are receiving your second or third dose, take your vaccination card with you. This is the card you were given when you received the first dose.
You can also present a proof of vaccination instead of the vaccination card. The proof of vaccination shows when you received your previous dose(s).
Obtain proof of vaccination (covidbevis.se)
- Try to wear clothes with short sleeves. This will make it easier for the nurse to give you the injection in your upper arm.
- Arrive on time – do not arrive too early, as this can result in queues and the spreading of COVID19.
- You will be given information about the vaccine and any side-effects you may experience. You must complete a health declaration form, and answer a few questions about your general health.
- The vaccine is given as an injection in your upper arm.
- You must wait for 15 minutes afterwards, before leaving. This allows the staff to ensure you do not feel unwell.

The vaccination process
If you are under 18 years of age
Are you between 16 and 17 years old? Then you can most likely decide for yourself whether you want to be vaccinated.
But it’s not always possible. For example, if you don’t understand the information about the vaccine. In such case, your guardian will have to approve the vaccination. Your guardian is usually your parent or both parents.
The staff at the health care centre will give you a form to take home. Your guardian will need to sign the form. You can then book a new time and get vaccinated.
Make a new appointment if you get ill
Cancel the booking if you are feeling unwell. For example, if you have a fever. Contact the health care centre in order to make a new appointment.
Which vaccine do I get?
You can’t choose the vaccine yourself. You get the vaccine that’s available at the health care centre.
