Vaccination against COVID-19 to be included in national vaccination register

9 December 2020 klockan 16.45

The Riksdag voted in favour of the Government's proposal that the Act on the register of national vaccination programmes should also include vaccinations against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). According to the proposal, the care provider responsible for the COVID-19 vaccination shall also provide information about the dose number of the vaccination to the register.

Other provisions concern what data should be submitted to the register, how these may be processed in the register and who is to submit the data.

The amendments will come into force on 1 January 2021.
