Vaccination with Novavax

The corona vaccine Nuvaxovid (from Novavax) is protein-based vaccine that draws on a traditional vaccine technology. A similar technology is used in vaccines against hepatitis B and whooping cough (pertussis). The vaccine contains a variant of the spike protein on the corona virus which the immune system can practice against. In that way the body learns to recognise the real virus later. Novavax has been certified to be used by adults 18 years and older, and it can be taken as the first, second, and third dose. Read more about Novavax here.

We offer Novavax every Thursday at 9 am-3 pm. You must book an appointment by phone or email in advance. Call 67 50 59 99 (option 1) or send an email to vaksine@baerum.kommune.no. It is not possible to use our drop-in offer or book an appointment online for Novavax.

Do I need to take a confirmatory PCR-test?

A confirmatory PCR-test or antigen-based rapid-test is taken by health personnel and is recommended for the following persons:

  • You may need a confirmatory test to obtain a valid Covid-19 certificate if you have not received a booster dose (vaccine dose 3).
  • Children under the age of 16 who test positive on a self-test can take a confirmatory test.
  • You should take an confirmatory test if you have a weakened immune system.

Testing in connection with travel - only appointment by phone

Bærum municipality offers testing in connection with travel abroad if there is capacity. 

Only tests of the antigen rapid test type are offered. This test is analysed on site and is not sent to a laboratory. It is therefore not accredited in accordance with NS-EN ISO 15189.

Each individual must check what the border guard and the airline require as a basis for a certificate (PCR, RT-PCR or antigen rapid test) and the time interval the test is valid in (for example, 24-72 hours before departure).

The municipality is not responsible for compensation for flights or other expenses in connection with travel.

Opening hours for corona testing in connection with travel are Monday-Friday during the day. You must call to make an appointment: 67 50 59 99. We do not offer drop-in for testing in connection with travel. It is not possible to book an appointment online.

The price for antigen rapid test is NOK 350. The test is then entered in your corona certificate at HelseNorge.

If you need an additional travel certificate (fit to fly-documentation), a cost of NOK 150 will be added, a total of NOK 500 including the antigen rapid test. You must be symptom-free and test negative to get the fit to fly-documentation.

We do not send the certificate by e-mail or digital post. In order to receive the certificate, you must therefore expect some waiting time. Bring your passport, if it is required that your passport number is listed on your travel certificate.

You can pay with Norwegian debit card or use Vipps. We do not take credit cards or foreign debit cards.

Location

The test centre is located at the parking lot opposite Telenor Arena. You may arrive by car, foot og bicycle. The address is Forneburingen 51.
