City of Kuopio got many questions about the vaccines during the 3.vaccination. Vaccines Pfizer-BionTech Comirnaty and Moderna Spikevax are in use now in Kuopio. 

There are more vaccines Moderna to give now. According to THL recommendation Moderna shouldn`t be given to men under 30 years old. That is why Pfizer vaccine is saved for this target group.

You can have Moderna vaccine at the 3.vaccination, even if you had only Pfizer vaccines before.

Timetable and progress

The exact schedule for vaccinations cannot yet be verified. This depends on when, which and how much vaccine is available for Finland and for Kuopio. As everywhere else, Kuopio's vaccination schedules are affected by the general world situation regarding the availability of vaccines.

As a whole, in addition to THL's policies, vaccination in Kuopio takes into account practicality and efficiency. The aim is to avoid vaccine losses, which may mean that a younger home care client, for example, can also receive the vaccine if he or she lives next door to an older patient.

In addition, research data on the efficacy of vaccines from different vaccine manufacturers in different age groups are monitored. It is also important that people who have already received one vaccine receive their second dose.

The purpose of continuous review and expert work is to ensure the most comprehensive vaccination protection possible for the residents of Kuopio.

We will announce vaccination schedules in the newspapers, on the city’s website and in some channels when the schedules are confirmed.

Let's take care together that in Kuopio, vaccinations go well and that both vaccinees and healthcare professionals maintain the peace of vaccination! Thank you!
