Dose 5 Offered from 1 September 2022

In preparation for the coming autumn and winter seasons, the Public Health Agency of Sweden has recommended an additional booster shot for people with an increased risk of developing serious illness due to COVID-19. This applies to people over 65 years of age, those with weakened immune systems and other at-risk groups, including those who are pregnant.

It is recommended that people aged 18–64 years receive three doses of vaccine, but anyone who wishes to receive a fourth dose can book an appointment after higher-priority groups have had the chance to be vaccinated first.

At least four months must have passed since your last dose.

Elderly to be offered appointments first

In line with the prioritisation list here below, everyone over the age of 18 years will have the opportunity to book an appointment to receive a booster shot, with the elderly being given first priority:

  1. People aged 80 years and above, residents of assisted living facilities for the elderly (särskilt boende för äldre) and those who receive visits from home-help services or home-nursing services (hemtjänst or hemsjukvård).
  2. People with weakened immune systems and other at-risk groups, including those who are pregnant.
  3. People aged 65 years and above.
  4. It is recommended that people aged 18–64 years receive three doses of vaccine. Those who wish to receive an additional booster shot – dose 4 – may do so.

Things to keep in mind ahead of your visit

The checklist below includes what you need to keep in mind when you come to be vaccinated.

  • You can only make an appointment for yourself.
  • You must bring a valid identification document. If you do not have a Swedish social security number you need a temporary number (reservnummer) or a co-ordination number (samordningsnummer). 
  • Do not come to the clinic unless you are free of cold symptoms. Otherwise change your appointment.
  • When you are being vaccinated, you must hand in a completed health declaration. Print it out even today, fill it in and bring it with you to your appointment. If you are unable to print the health declaration yourself, we will give you a copy to fill in at the clinic. Please bring your own pen if you can.
  • Wear easily removable clothes on your upper body so that you can easily have the injection made in your upper arm. 
  • Eat or drink something before your appointment.
