Vaccination Schedule Revealed, Following Lottery

This morning, the authorities conducted a lottery to determine the order of vaccinations for residents yet to be inoculated against COVID-19. Men born in 1979 will be first; women born in 1985 last. Some 120,000-150,000 doses will be administered in the next 20 days.

Men born in 1979 first, women in 1985 last

This morning, Ragnheiður Ósk Erlendsdóttir – Head of Nursing at the Capital Area Healthcare Centre – oversaw a vaccination lottery at the Centres’ headquarters in Reykjavík. With the aid of two colleagues, Ragnheiður drew birth years out of a pot to determine the order of vaccinations among residents born between the years 1975 and 2005 and who have yet to be inoculated against COVID-19.

The pot contained 54 slips of paper, or a total of 27 birth years (pink for women, blue for men). As noted by Ragnheiður, there are approximately 1,000 individuals from each birth year that have yet to be vaccinated.

The results of the lottery were as follows:
