Uppsala opened its vaccine booking system to over-18s on Wednesday, after opening to over-21s on Tuesday. That means all of Sweden’s 21 regions now offer the vaccine to all adults. You have to have turned 18 to be able to book.
In Uppsala, booking is possible through 1177.se or by calling 018-617 35 00 in case you are not able to log in with a BankID app or similar. This is also the number you should call if you don’t have a Swedish identification number (personnummer). The vaccine is free and available to everyone who lives in Sweden.

Across the whole country, 5,747,869 people have received at least the first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, according to the most recent update from the Public Health Agency on Friday. That’s equivalent to 70 percent of the adult population, while 3,682,574 have received two doses.
Currently the vaccines being used in Sweden require two doses and are only being given to over-18s, but the country plans to roll out the vaccine to over-16s as well as over-12s who belong to a Covid-19 risk group in the second week of August.
Meanwhile, adults in a Covid-19 risk group may be offered a third dose as early as the autumn, according to comments from state epidemiologist Anders Tegnell.
