When will your child be offered vaccines?

Here is an overview of when your child will be offered vaccines as part of the Childhood Immunisation Programme.

Jente får vaksine

Health centres and the School Health Service provide both information on and the childhood immunisation programme to all children up to and including primary school age.

The first vaccine in the childhood immunisation programme is administered at six weeks old, and the last vaccine is administered at 12 years old (10th grade). If for some reason the child has not received one or more of the vaccines in the programme when it is usually offered, they are entitled to receive any of the vaccines included in the childhood immunisation programme until they turn 20.
