Everyone older than 16 will be invited today: New vaccination center opens in Aalborg

by Nathalia Hentze Nielsen

The North Denmark Region is opening a new vaccination center in Aalborg because a large amount of the new Pfizer vaccines need to be administered as soon as possible. Thus, the last group – the 30- to 34-year-olds – will at the latest be invited to get their vaccines today.

Beginning next week, a new vaccination will furthermore open in Aalborg Congress and Culture Center (AKKC).

It’ll thus be possible to be vaccinated on Håndværkervej and at AKKC in Aalborg. 

It’s necessary with another vaccination center in Aalborg because everyone living in North Jutland over the age of 16 will be invited to get a vaccine today at the latest, as reported by the chief consultant, Anders Cinicola, in the Health Planning department of the North Denmark Region.

“We’re receiving a large amount of Pfizer vaccine doses this week, and we need to get those administered to the people in North Jutland as fast as possible.

On top of this, Aalborg Municipality is the municipality with the youngest inhabitants, which is the target group that we are currently vaccinating. That is why we need to expand,” Anders Cinicola says.

The North Denmark Region started inviting the 30- to 34-year-old yesterday.

This group will soon be able to book an appointment on vacciner.dk. And now they get to choose to be vaccinated at AKKC as well – if there are appointments available.

Ready to vaccinate twice as many

The last group to be vaccinated will be the 12- to 15-year-olds, and they are expected to receive their invitation within a few weeks.

The North Denmark Region has prepared to vaccinate twice as many people on very short notice, and now they’re able to vaccinate 10,000 people a day. The North Jutland vaccination efforts, which have been a success so far, have thus been sped up.

“It is important that we quickly have been able to upscale our vaccination efforts.

We know that the wait feels long, and we are happy that we are now able to see the goal line in relation to offering all people in the North Jutland region their vaccine,” Anders Cinicola says.

The current PCR test center in AKKC will remain open, but it’s expected that it’ll be closed once more people are vaccinated, and the need for tests diminishes.
