In accordance with Finland’s COVID-19 vaccination strategy, the vaccination is offered free of charge to everyone.
All coronavirus vaccines used in Finland require two doses – i.e., two injections. The Finnish institute for health and welfare, THL, recommends 12 weeks as the interval between the vaccinations for all coronavirus vaccines.
