Vaccination effectively protects against becoming seriously ill or dying in COVID-19. It also protects against becoming infected and infecting others, accroding to the Public Health Agency of Sweden. Get vaccinated in Norrbotten or in Västerbotten. Information about vaccination for exchange students can be found on the FAQ, on the English page. You can be vaccinated in a different region or in a different place than where you are registered. This could be, for example, if you work or study in another place.
