When you have been vaccinated against COVID-19

When you have been vaccinated against COVID-19

You can do several things that were not recommended before you were immunized once your vaccine has had time to function.

This is referred to as a "vaccine bonus.".

How long does it take for your vaccine to start working?

The amount of time you must wait is determined by the vaccine you received.

The vaccine bonus recommendation is as follows:

  • After your second Pfizer-BioNTech dose, wait 7 days
  • After 14 days, take your second Moderna dose
  • This is a single dose vaccine that is given 14 days after the Janssen vaccine
  • You still need to obtain your second AstraZeneca dose 28 days after your first dose to ensure that your vaccine protection lasts

Bonus vaccination

You can meet indoors with: if you have the vaccination benefit

  • other fully immunized individuals from up to two additional households
  • persons from one other family who haven’t been vaccinated – as long as there aren’t more than three families

You don’t need to conceal your face or stand 2 meters apart to do this.

If you don’t get vaccinated, the people you encounter shouldn’t be at high risk of contracting COVID-19.

Getting to know new individuals

Even if you have been vaccinated, you may be nervous about meeting new people. No matter which COVID-19 vaccine you acquire, you may rest assured that it will work.

If your COVID-19 test came back positive

You can also follow the vaccine bonus advise if you have a positive PCR COVID-19 test during the last 9 months. As soon as you’ve recovered from COVID-19, you can do this. This is due to the fact that you are immune for 9 months.

If you are one of the following, this does not apply to you:

  • 65 years old or older
  • Because of sickness or therapy, one’s immune system has been impaired

To provide long-term protection, you should still have your COVID-19 vaccine when it is offered to you.

Continue to safeguard yourself and others

Continue to follow recommendations on how to prevent the transmission of COVID-19 in public areas even after you’ve been vaccinated.

Consider the following example:

  • social estrangement
  • wearing a hooded hooded hooded hooded
  • Hands should be washed thoroughly and frequently
