04.05.2021 - BREAKING NEWS: The plans for the next two reopening phases are now ready

The politicians have spent the night negotiating the content of the next two reopening phases, which are going to enter into effect on the 6th and 21st of May respectively.

The results are likely very pleasing to most - but we've also now gotten unofficially confirmed that pretty much all festivals will have to cancel this year.

It's also become official that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine has been removed from the Danish vaccination programme, just like it happened with the AstraZeneca vaccine, pushing the time where everybody should have been offered a vaccine with three weeks, until the end of August.

It will, however, be possible to voluntarily get vaccinated with the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines that we have already received, at some unspecified time in May.

For further details, see below the picture.
