Information to staff

BTH management continuously monitors the corona outbreak and follows information from mainly the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Public Health Authority.

Vaccine against COVID-19

  • Staff will get their COVID-19 vaccine through their health care center. Vaccine phase 4 (persons aged 18–59 who do not belong to a risk group) starts in May. If you’re not registered in Blekinge, if you’re staying here temporarily or if you don’t have a Swedish social security number you still have the right to be vaccinated against COVID-19 in Blekinge. It is your own responsibility to contact a health center when it is your turn to be vaccinated. You will find more information in the preliminary vaccination plan. The vaccination against covid-19 is free.
  • BTH staff is allowed to visit a health care center for their vaccination during working hours.
