Here is the latest information on how to book your Covid-19 booster vaccine in each of Sweden's 21 regions.

To find out exactly what applies to you, we also recommend checking on the website of your region on 1177.se (find links below).

Note that many regions that haven’t already opened the third dose to all over-18s do offer the third dose to people who work with elderly people or belong to risk groups themselves; if you fall into one of those groups it is best that you consult with your workplace or doctor to get more information and medical advice about when and how you should get your booster.

Please note that people in many regions experienced difficulties booking their first vaccines via phone lines and via 1177.se or apps, so it is possible that you may come across difficulties booking your booster.

You cannot book a vaccine appointment by calling 1177. High demand might mean phone lines are busy with long waiting times, or that online booking options crash. If that happens to you, the best advice is to keep trying, especially in the morning when new times are often released – several readers have reported successfully booking their appointment after multiple tries.

Blekinge

Who can get the booster vaccination?

Anyone over 18 who had their second dose of the vaccine at least six months ago can book an appointment for vaccination. Those over 65 can get their second dose after five months.

How do I book?

Go to this link, click “Till bokningssidan” and then click “Ja, det har gått rätt intervall sedan jag fick dos 2”. Choose a slot at a doctor’s office, the same one where you are registered if possible.
