The Finnish Government just recently announced that the coronavirus situation in Finland is rapidly worsening. “Over the past two weeks, the number and incidence of cases have risen sharply in almost all regions,” stated the government. Thus, many regions have already taken action.
Other than adapting to new ways to prevent infections and introduce more restrictive measures, the Finnish government, through a conference held on Wednesday, December 2, 2020, has unveiled another one of their plans against the virus.
Representing Finland in the conference, Krista Kiuru, the Minister of Family Affairs and Social Services, made mention that vaccines against the virus will be offered for free to anyone who wants them.
“Finland’s goal is to protect the entire population by offering the vaccine free of charge to all those willing and who don’t have a health obstacle,” Krista Kiuru told, as reported by Reuters.
The Ministry of Social Affairs and Health was the one that prepared the vaccine strategy which was approved by the government. And as estimated by the ministry, the first vaccines will be available in Finland early next year. The vaccines will initially be offered to some groups including the social and health care staff among others.
