Denmark has now withdrawn two vaccines from its inoculation program. Here is a detailed look at how this has changed the vaccination timetable.

On Monday, the Danish Health Authority issued a newly updated vaccination calendar taking into account the effect of withdrawing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and the loss of 105,600 doses which had been expected under the previous calendar from April 14th

This means that the final vaccination date has been delayed by three weeks for the worst-hit age group, those between the ages of 30 and 34.  

Unchanged

Under the new timetable, 75 to 79-year-olds can still expect to be vaccinated by the end of this week, those between the ages of 65 and 74 can still expect to be vaccinated by the end of this month. 

The hoped-for vaccination date for another group, which comprises both 16 to 19 year-olds and 45 to 49-year-olds, is also unchanged at mid-July. 

Pushed back a week 

For those between the ages of 60 and 64, between the ages of 55-59, and between the ages of 50-54, the goal has been pushed back by about a week, to the end of the third week in June, the end of June, and the end of the first week in July, respectively. 

For another group, which comprises both 20 to 24 year-olds and 40 to 44-year-olds, the vaccination goal has been pushed back from the end of the third week in July to the end of July. 

Pushed back by two weeks 

The goal for those between the ages of 30-34 has been pushed back from the end of the first week in August to the end of the third week in August. 

Pushed back by three weeks 

For the group combining 25 to 29 year-olds and 35 to 39-year-olds, the vaccination goal has been pushed back by three weeks from the end of July until the third week of August.
