Sets up the emergency department

Kristiansund has actually had a number of infections since the New Year, and plans to vaccinate 1,850 people tomorrow night.

This is absolutely amazing. We are in a big local outbreak and we are totally dependent on vaccinating them tomorrow to provide them with the protection they need, ”says Sandwick.

But do you think people will appear in bad weather?

That’s a good question. We hope that as many people as possible will meet and encourage everyone who has the time, he says.
