Here's what we know about Sweden's plans for the Covid-19 vaccine - (The Local via NewsPoints Desk)

  • Sweden’s vaccine coordinator Richard Bergström said COVID-19 vaccinations could begin as early as the first quarter of 2021, reported The Local. 

  • The country has signed a deal to buy millions of doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine for next year and is working on deals for six other vaccines.

  • "We have bought more than we need, but that's a good problem to have. We will be able to sell to other countries," said Bergström.

  • People over the age of 70, healthcare workers and others with underlying symptoms will be prioritised, said Johan Carlson, general director of the country’s public health agency.
