Where to get vaccinated against COVID-19
Anyone who wants to get vaccinated against COVID-19 can book an appointment or visit one of Region Örebro County’s drop-in vaccination centres. Note, however, that the drop-in facility in Örebro town centre is only open until 8 September.
International students and members of staff at Örebro University are welcome to get their vaccinations at any of Region Örebro County’s vaccination centres. Perhaps you have got your first dose elsewhere and need to get the second jab, or maybe you need to get both doses here in Örebro.
You do not have to be a Swedish citizen to get vaccinated in Örebro County.
Available drop-in slots can be found here: www.1177.se/Orebrolan/drop-in (in Swedish).
If you would rather book your appointment in advance, you can do so via 1177.se or by phoning +46 19 602 80 00.
Take the bus to the vaccination centre – for free
The vaccination centre in Conventum Arena is on Fabriksgatan 26-28 in the town centre. The nearest bus stop is Våghustorget. If you are coming by train, the centre is only a short walk away from the station Örebro Södra.
The vaccination centre in Boglundsängen is on Prologgatan 3. You get here, for instance, by taking bus number 2 or 10, both of which go from the bus stop Universitetsplatsen by Örebro University. In Boglundsängen, get off at the bus stop Eurostop. Walk through the tunnel towards Citygross, and you will see the vaccination centre.
If you want to take the bus to either of these centres for drop-in vaccination, you can pick up a free bus ticket from the desk at the Student Services Centre in Långhuset. If you have booked an appointment, the text message confirmation you have received is valid as your bus ticket. For the return journey, the vaccination card given to you after the jab will serve as your ticket.
If you are a student or member of staff at Campus Grythyttan, the vaccination centre in Lindesberg is the closest.
