In theory, anyone over the age of 50 should have been vaccinated before starting in their 50s. But it is clearly not happening, reports TV2.
Already teenagers in the capital region get their first jab, while people in the early 50s in North Jutland are still waiting for theirs.
Theoretically, the age group 50-54 is ahead of the age group 16-19 and 45-49 years in the vaccination queue, but this has not stopped the young people who skip, despite the fact that they have a much lower risk of dying or being seriously ill should they enter into the corona.
For several months, the government insisted that most restrictions could be lifted in full once everyone over the age of 50 is vaccinated, which seems to be within reach in mid-July.
But not if they are still in line for their first in North Jutland!
Ah, there’s the friction
There is a simple explanation for why this happens.
The vaccine doses are distributed among the regions based on their population sizes, which means that the capital region has received significantly more than North Jutland.
However, a much higher percentage of the North Jutland population is proportionally over 50 years and thus slows down the rollout.
In the metropolitan area, however, they quickly jabbed over the 50s and moved on to the under 50s.
“We are always a little behind here anyway,” Anni Jespersen, a North Jutlander in her 50s, cheerfully told TV2 on Håndværkervej in Aalborg yesterday, where she stood in line for her first vaccination shot.
