Denmark to Terminate COVID Vaccination Initiative

Officials in Denmark are confident in having the virus under control.

In many countries worldwide, COVID-19 vaccination remains mandatory. While case numbers have decreased from the peak of the pandemic, they are still fluctuating, leading most governments to uphold their vaccination requirements and overall pandemic safety measures. However, one country has determined that the situation has stabilized enough to discontinue compulsory vaccinations.

Denmark recently declared the termination of its government-led COVID vaccination campaign as they believe that COVID cases in the country are at manageable levels.

“With the arrival of spring, high vaccine coverage in the Danish population, and the epidemic trending downwards,” stated the Danish Health Authority on Wednesday.

“Consequently, the National Board of Health is concluding the widespread vaccination campaign against COVID-19 for this period,” they added.

The vaccination initiative in Denmark commenced towards the end of 2020. Since then, approximately 4.8 million citizens have received at least one dose, with 3.6 million individuals having been fully vaccinated, including a booster shot. Although numerous cases of the Omicron variant have been reported in the country, there have been notably fewer severe cases, indicating a strong overall immune response across Denmark.

Bolette Soborg, unit manager at the National Board of Health, expressed, “We are in a good position. We have a solid grip on the epidemic, which appears to be diminishing. Hospital admission rates are steady, and we anticipate a decline soon. Therefore, we are concluding the mass vaccination drive against COVID-19.”

Citizens will still have the option to receive vaccinations if they wish, and health officials are still advising vulnerable populations to get vaccinated.
