See the pharmacies offering Covid-19 vaccination in the Capital Region of Denmark

Covid-19 vaccination in hospital

If you are undergoing an active course of treatment at hospital, and you cannot be vaccinated at a vaccination centre or your own GP, you can be vaccinated at the hospital where you are receiving treatment. Ask how it works at your hospital.

Mobile vaccination units

Residents at care centres and sheltered homes are offered vaccination via mobile vaccination units. Other people who cannot leave their home can also be vaccinated at home. Contact your home municipality for information about whether you can be vaccinated via a mobile vaccination unit.​



How you will be vaccinated

Booking an appointment for vaccination on vacciner.dk

 You can book an appointment for vaccination on vacciner.dk

The video describes how you book an appointment on vacciner.dk

Do you need to cancel a vaccination appointment?

  • Log in to vacciner.dk
  • Go to "My bookings"
  • Click on "Cancel"
  • If you cancel the first appointment, both appointments will be cancelled, and you will have to book two new appointments.

If you need to change your appointments

  • You can change your appointments for vaccination by logging in to vacciner.dk You do not have delete your existing appointment, but you can change it to an appointment that suits you.

  • Once you have had your first vaccine, you can change (cancel or edit) the appointment for the second vaccine, but only within the permitted time limit of 3-6 weeks after the first vaccine (the time limit differs depending on the type of vaccine). You can also move your appointment to a different vaccination centre than the one where you received your first vaccination.

Vaccination without an appointment

You can be vaccinated in all of the Capital Region's vaccination centres and at the local municipal vaccination centres. You always have to book an appointment for vaccination of children who are between 5 and 11 years old. Other citizens getting their first vaccination can turn up without booking an appointment, at the latest 30 minutes before closing time. All others must book an appointment at vacciner.dk.

All you have to do is bring your health insurance card. If you are not resident in Denmark, however, you must have been in Denmark for min. 14 days, and your stay in Denmark must be min. 30 days. In addition, the purpose of your stay must not be to get a vaccination.​



Corona passport after vaccination

If you have NemID, you can download your corona passport at sundhed.dk or use the "Coronapas" app available in App Store and in Google Play. 

Citizens exempt from receiving digital post will automatically receive a corona passport in the post after their vaccination. 

You can also order a physical corona passport after vaccination by calling sundhed.dk at tel. +45 44 22 77 74. 

Are there errors in the registration of your vaccination?

If there are errors in the registration of your vaccination, try the following:

  1. Log on to www.sundhed.dk with your NemID, and check whether your vaccinations have been registered with the correct dates.

  2. If your vaccinations are properly registered at sundhed.dk, but they are still incorrect in the two apps "MinSundhed" and "Coronapas", try uninstalling and reinstalling the relevant app. 

You need to state the following:

  • Civil registration number (CPR number)
  • Time and place of your vaccination (Name of vaccination centre or name and address of medical health centre)  
  • The vaccines you have received (Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca)

From September 2021, the vaccination centres in the Capital Region of Denmark changed location to secure more permanent solutions. The new vaccination centres have retained approval for the former vaccination centre in the shared medication record (FMK), the centres have just received a new name and new address. Many citizens will therefore find that the address for their 1st and 2nd jabs has changed in their corona passport. For example, citizens who received their 1st and 2nd jabs at Bella Center, will see that the vaccination centre for their 1st and 2nd jabs is now stated as “Vaccinationscenter Valby" in their corona passport. This change has no practical significance for the validity of the corona passport.  ​


Vaccination of pregnant and breastfeeding persons

Pregnant and breastfeeding persons can be vaccinated against Covid-19.


The Danish Health Authority recommends vaccination for pregnant persons in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd trimester. Breastfeeding persons can be vaccinated immediately. 

Vaccination is voluntary and free of charge.

The Danish Health Authority's recommendation is based on a professional assessment following scientific studies, data on the effectiveness of the vaccines and any side effects from them, and advice from experts.

According to the Danish Health Authority, the vaccines used in the Danish vaccination programme from Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna offer the same protection for pregnant and breastfeeding persons as they do for other people.

The Danish Health Authority also states that no increased risk of miscarriages, deformities or premature birth has been seen in people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

Pregnant and breastfeeding persons may have the same side effects as others after vaccination. In the vast majority of cases, the side effects are mild. These mild side effects can be fatigue, headaches and fever, and typically last a couple of days. Allergic reactions may occur in rare cases.

If you have any questions about vaccination of pregnant or breastfeeding persons

  • Contact your general practitioner

  • Call the national corona hotline on +45 70 20 02 33

Vaccination of children and young people under the age of 18

5-11 year olds

If you are under the age of 11, your invitation for a vaccination will have been sent to your parents. Your parents can book an appointment for your vaccination on vacciner.dk.

Invitations to vaccination for children between 5 and 11 years are sent out once a week. Therefore, it may take a little time before the invitation for a vaccination against Covid-19 arrives in your e-Boks.

You must always book an appointment for vaccination of children between 5 and 11 years if vaccination is to be in the large regional vaccination centres or in Copenhagen Medical's private vaccination centres.

Children between 5 and 11 can also be vaccinated at general practitioners. You can be vaccinated at a general practitioner, even though you have not received an invitation to vaccination yet. You just have to be five years old or over.

See the general practitioners offering Covid-19 vaccination

Children over the age of five years can also be vaccinated without an appointment at pharmacies in the Capital Region of Denmark.

NB: Children under 15 years must have at least one parent or a guardian with them when they are to be vaccinated. If a child comes to a vaccination with a close relative, e.g. a grandparent or sibling over 18 years, the vaccinating officer will telephone a parent or guardian for consent to the vaccination.

Read more about Covid-19 vaccination of 5-11 year-olds on the Danish Health Authority's website.

12-14 year olds 

If you are under the age of 15, your invitation will have been sent to your parents. Your parents can book an appointment for your vaccination. Once a week, all children who have turned 12 within the past week will receive an invitation. However, children can be vaccinated without an appointment from the day they turn 12, even if they have not received an invitation. Only people who are to have their first jab will be vaccinated without an appointment. Everyone else has to book an appointment on vacciner.dk.

There is also an option to be vaccinated at a general practitioner. If you reached the age of 12 you must have an invitation to vaccination in order to be vaccinated at a general practitioner. You do not have to be vaccinated by your own general practitioner.

See the general practitioners offering Covid-19 vaccination

Children over the age of five years can also be vaccinated without an appointment at pharmacies in the Capital Region of Denmark.

NB: Children under 15 years must have at least one parent or a guardian with them when they are to be vaccinated.

Read more about Covid-19 vaccination of 12-15 year-olds on the Danish Health Authority's website.

15-17 year olds

All 15-17 year olds have received an invitation in their e-Boks.

If you are under 18, your parents (or the person(s) who has/have custody of you) will receive a copy of your invitation to vaccination. 

You can book an appointment using your own NemID at vacciner.dk

Vaccination against Covid-19 is voluntary and free of charge. The decision to get vaccinated is therefore entirely your own. 

The Danish Health Authority recommends that you talk to your parents before you decide to get vaccinated. If you show up alone for the vaccination, you may be asked if you have spoken to your parents.

Waiting time on corona hotline

The Capital Region of Denmark corona hotline is for individuals who do not have a NemID, and therefore need help to book and change appointments for vaccination against COVID-19.

There are currently many citizens who call the Region's corona hotline to book an appointment for vaccination, and therefore there is a long waiting time to get through by phone.
