You should call your doctor:

  • If you have symptoms of COVID-19 and feel so ill that you would like to consult a doctor
  • If you are worried or in doubt
  • If it concerns a child under the age of 2

Your doctor will assess whether you should immediately be tested and examined by a healthcare professional. If so, you will be offered an examination on the very same day, which will take place at a local COVID-19 assessment unit. Your doctor will tell you how and where the examination will take place.

If the doctor assesses that you can wait 1-2 days to be seen by your own doctor, you will be referred for a COVID-19 test while you wait for your doctor’s appointment. This test will be performed at a local test site or at a COVID-19 assessment unit. If you test negative for COVID-19, your doctor will offer you a consultation at his or her office.

5. What to do if you get symptoms of COVID-19 after you have been vaccinated

Once you have been fully vaccinated, you must continue to follow the same guidance on preventing the spread of infection. If you get symptoms of COVID-19, you must self-isolate, pay particular attention to hygiene and cleaning, and make sure you get tested for novel coronavirus.

It is important to stress that vaccination does not give you 100% protection against COVID-19. So, in principle, there is a very small chance that you may still become infected and ill. Furthermore, we do not know whether the vaccines will prevent you from carrying the virus and spreading the infection to others.
