Are you a student and need corona (Covid-19) vaccine?
Students in Kautokeino municipality will be offered corona vaccine here if they wish. Students who want to take the coronary vaccine must contact the municipality's vaccine coordinator on weekdays from 10:00 - 14:00 on +47 485 00 784. If you do not get an answer right away, they will call you back. 

Students that are registerd in a different municipality in Norway, must refuse the offer of vaccination in their registered municipality if they will take the vaccine in Kautokeino. 

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health encourages all students to take advantage of the offer of the first dose of coronary vaccine in the municipality in which they are registered, even if it involves travel. This is the fastest way to get your first vaccine dose.

Remember it is important for the best possible protection to take both doses.

Due to the holiday period, we have slightly reduced staff in the summer and it may therefore be somewhat longer response time to inquiries.
