  • Currently two health regions are refusing to use the Moderna vaccine since it is not covered by Sweden's official medical insurance system.
  • Doses of the Moderna vaccine will arrive in the coming days, but regions Dalarna and Västra Götaland won't use the vaccine in the first stages of the campaign, for fear of being liable for damages.
  • The government said it will propose a law as soon as possible to cover all compensation, dating from the start of the use of the vaccine.
