If you do not have a Swedish personal identity number or have a reserve number

If you lack a personal identity number or have a reserve number (temporary medical number), you cannot make an appointment for vaccination online. Instead, call the telephone support directly, 0611-804 00, Monday-Friday 8am-6pm.

Allergic reaction

If you have previously had a severe allergic reaction and needed to seek
emergency care, you should contact your health/health care center before you
receive your vaccine against covid-19. You do this to get advice and an
assessment of whether you can take your vaccine dose at the regular vaccination
room or if you need an extended time of monitoring.
A severe allergic reaction usually occurs very quickly, within 30 minutes, after you
have been exposed to what you are allergic to.

The reactions can be for example:

  • respiratory distress
  • nausea and vomiting
  • strong palpitations
  • fainting
  • The reaction is then so severe that you seek care by calling 112.


The reaction is then so severe that one will have to seek care in an emergency room or go directly to your health/health care center.

Have you previously had a severe allergic reaction and had to seek emergency care? Then you should contact your health or medical center for advice before you book your appointment for vaccination. It is important that you are given an
assessment of how to receive your vaccine in a safely manner.

If the health center assesses that you can be vaccinated in the regular flow, you can book an appointment and answer”No” to the question in the health declarationom that you have had a severe allergic reaction.

If the health-care center comes to the conclusion that vaccination must take place with increased supervision, the health/health care center will submit a referral so that you will be vaccinated at one of the county's hospitals. You will then be called for vaccination.
