If you have been vaccinated
Two weeks after the second dose, people who have been vaccinated have good protection against serious illness.
After two weeks, someone who has been vaccinated with a second dose may:
- meet indoors with others from a few different households.
- shop in stores, but may not cause crowding for others.
- socialise with children and grandchildren indoors without maintaining social distance, on the condition that no one displays any symptoms.
- Vaccinated persons in elderly care can leave their homes and visit relatives.
There is a chance you might still get or spread Covid-19 even if you have had the vaccine. This means the basic advice still applies to everyone:
- stay home if you are ill
- wash your hands
- keep your distance
- get a PCR test if you have symptoms
Symptoms after vaccination
If you get symptoms within the first 24 hours after having been vaccinated against Covid-19 you do not need to take a PCR test. Stay at home and avoid meeting others as long as you have any symptoms. If the symptoms last longer than 24 hours, you need to take a test.
Digital Covid Certificate
Digital Covid Certificate is a free of charge digital certificate that shows you have been vaccinated against covid-19. The idea is that it should facilitate travel abroad inside the EU. In Sweden, it is the Swedish eHealth Agency that is responsible for the e-service Digital Covid Certificate.
