Booster vaccination programme
A booster vaccination/re-vaccination is now offered to everyone above the age of 50 years old.
The booster vaccine is free and voluntary.
At the moment, the booster vaccine is offered to:
Citizens at the age of 50 years old and older.
Citizens under 50 and are at a higher risk
Healthcare- and nursing staff with close contact with patients at the healthcare system and nursing homes
Pregnant from 1st trimester
The booster vaccine is offered when the citizen has completed his or her primary vaccination at least 3 months ago. In some cities you’ll be called in for vaccination at the local health center, while other cities will have open drop-in vaccination. Please find the vaccination plan here.
You’ll be offered Moderna’s Spikevax.
People who in Denmark have been offered the booster vaccination and who meet the above criteria, will be offered the booster vaccination in Greenland, even though they did not receive their primary vaccination here. The requirement that your primary vaccination ended at least four months and two weeks ago, must be met.
Citizens who are not included at the above list will not be offered the boostervaccine.
The EU Commission has given its approval for Moderna’s Spikevax vaccine to be given as a boostervaccine to people aged 50 and over.
The booster vaccination may only be given at the earliest 3 months after the person has received their second primary vaccination dose. You’ll be offered Moderna’s Spikevax.
For the booster vaccination with Moderna’s Spikevax, you’ll be given a vaccine with 0,5ml dose.
All vaccines can cause side effects, including vaccines against COVID-19. In most cases, the side effects are mild and temporary, and are common and most often harmless. The health authorities consider EU-approved vaccines to be very safe and well documented.
In the case of the booster vaccination, the same side-effects as the side-effects from the primary vaccination against COVID-19 can be expected.
