All residents of Denmark can expect to be offered a vaccination by July 25th according to the newest version of the calendar. The completion date had been a week later than this after a reduction in deliveries from the company in April was signalled last week.
But the 39,000 doses the company said it would deliver in April has now increased to 84,000, according to the updated schedule from the health authority.
The March 29th update to the Danish Health Authority’s vaccination calendar can be viewed here.
The authority expected to complete vaccination of the age group 80-84 years during the coming weeks.
That means people aged 75-79 can expect to soon begin receiving invitations to book their jabs.
“We are ready to send invitations out to a new target group, namely citizens aged 75-79 years. It will be good to get them vaccinated,” health minister Magnus Heunicke wrote on Twitter.
Så er vi klar til at sende invitationer ud til en ny målgruppe, nemlig de borgere, der er blandt de 75 til 79-årige. Bliver godt at få dem vaccineret 💉💪 Det går fremad i vaccinationskalenderen, og alle kræfter er i gang med at vi får vaccineret så hurtigt som muligt.#COVID19dk https://t.co/lVCDwE33QC

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is one of four Covid-19 vaccines approved for use in the EU. Unlike the other three vaccines, it only requires a single dose.
