Denmark, which in February lifted all restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic, announced on Tuesday (April 26) that the country was suspending its national COVID-19 vaccination campaign.
The Danish Health Authority said the country was in a “good position.”
“Therefore we are winding down the mass vaccination program against COVID-19,” said Bolette Søborg, director of the authority’s department of infectious diseases.
While invitations for COVID-19 vaccinations would no longer be issued after May 15th, health officials anticipate a return after the summer.
“We plan to reopen the vaccination program in the autumn. This will be preceded by a thorough professional assessment of who and when to vaccinate and with which vaccines,” Søborg said.
