FHI will allow students to vaccinate in the city they study in, regardless of their nationally registered address. In addition, students will have the opportunity to get the two vaccine doses set in different cities.
We advise our students to register their request for vaccination in the city they are staying in. The registration will not place you forward in the queue for vaccination, but is especially important for those that are staying in a different city than the one they are nationally registered in.
The city of Oslo offers drop-in for both the first and second dose for all students living in Oslo.
- The first vaccine dose is offered as a drop-in at the municipality's vaccine centers or by booking an appointment here: https://www.helseboka.app/checkin/staff/922006/login
- If you have received the first vaccine dose in another city, but want the second dose in Oslo, you can register your interest here: https://www.helseboka.app/checkin/staff/2858577/login
- International students who do not have a Bank-ID or Norwegian identity number need to call the corona helpline at 21 80 21 82 to register their request for vaccination.
International students who do not have a Bank-ID or Norwegian identity number need to call the corona helpline at 51 50 72 20 to register their request for vaccination.
