How vaccination and sampling works

  1. Order vaccination

    When you as an employer have ordered vaccination, the employee will receive a summons to Falck.
  2. Vaccination at Falck or your workplace

    Vaccination is usually carried out at your nearest Previa unit. If many employees are to be vaccinated at the same time, we can carry out the vaccinations at your workplace. 
  3. Health declaration

    At the time of vaccination, the employee completes a health declaration to ensure that there are no medical barriers to the vaccine being granted. If there are no remarks, vaccination is carried out by a health occupational nurse after a physician's prescription.
