Getting vaccinated without a Swedish personal ID number
In Sweden, most systems depend on the Swedish personal ID number (in Swedish personnummer) to identify individuals. This is also the case for the Swedish vaccination programme. However, you can obtain a temporary number, called “reserve number” and thus get vaccinated even without having a personal ID number. The process of obtaining one differs a bit between the regions, i.e. counties.
