Svensk Damtidning contacted Margareta Thorgren about when the king and queen will receive their covid-19 vaccinations. In Sweden, the vaccination began a little over two weeks ago. Margareta Thorgen said that the King and Queen have not been vaccinated yet and that in Sweden, we have a in turn strategy. And the royal family follows the rules of order. There is a planning going on with the royal family's chief physician. The King and Queen are very positive that the vaccination has now begun in Sweden.

Queen Silvia sits opposite me and tells me how difficult it was, when the infection was ravaging our nursing homes the most, to sit isolated at Stenhammar Castle and not be able to do anything for the elderly.
“It is easy to imagine the pain that all the elderly feel in isolation. I understand that the authorities want well but people are suffering."
I follow up by asking if we have succeeded in our most important mission, to protect the elderly during the pandemic.
"It depends on how you see it… but preferably I want to avoid answering that question."
I understand that a clearer answer can ignite the criticism of the part of the Swedish strategy that would protect the old and fragile. And there the Queen is careful, but the silence in the answer gives a hint.

[...]

Together with Ingvar Kamprad and Ikea, the Queen developed a modern form of senior apartments for couples who lived a whole life together and would now have the opportunity to live together even when one of them suffers from Alzheimer's. The Queen saw these six apartments as a pilot project to perhaps develop into a model for the whole of Sweden.
But the Queen's neighbors have stopped patients from moving into their homes. On paper for formal reasons. And for the past three years, they have been completely empty.
"This makes me very sad, that you (neighbors, authorities) can not see that it is a well-meaning project and that I do it with my heart."
I ask if the Queen deep down suspects that the real reason why the neighbors want to stop SilviaBo is due to prejudice and that but do not want dementia so close to them.
"I do not dare to ask because I am afraid it is so. It is so painful and cruel that we have nice apartments that are just empty.”

[...]

I am very much impressed at the Queen's empathetic words and her efforts to speak up for those who are experiencing neglect or cruelty.

It has also emerged that many of elderly people are not so worried. Barbro Westerholm, the Riksdag's oldest member, said in an interview this week that it must be because of everything difficult elderly people have been able to participate through life. Does the Queen recognize the senior perspective?
- I understand what she means. The king also mentioned it in his speech, if you have been in difficult situations you have a knowledge that is important. Not to let yourself panic, to see that there is light at the end of the tunnel. It is especially important for our young people to think about it.

[...]
I also admire her talent for striking a supportive and personal note in her messages during the pandemic.

Thank you very much for the translations.

King Carl Gustav and Queen Silvia received their first dose of the vaccine against Covid-19 today at Stenhammar Palace where they are currently in residence.

The Court had previously let it be known that the couple was awaiting their turn in line with no preferential treatment and that plans had been drawn up by the court physician for when and how the vaccination would happen. The vaccination today follow the news that everyone living in care homes in Stockholm have been vaccinated.

Margareta Thorgren confirmed to Expressen yesterday that the king and queen are feeling well after Friday's vaccination at Stenhammar Palace, where they are currently staying. They will also be there for some time to come. Thorgren said that everything happens according to the recommendations, this is a planning that has been going on for a while for the the king and queen, as they are in risk group 70+.
The Swedish Public Health Agency has decided that people over 70 should be vaccinated in phase 2, which begins in February at the earliest. There are no details why the king and queen have been vaccinated already now.
Thorgren said that they have no information about when the other members of the royal family will have their vaccinations.

So, if I understand it correctly, the king and queen announced they did not want preferential treatment and that's why (or nonetheless) they received preferential treatment - given that they don't live in a care home but are part of the general 70+ population that is expected to receive their vaccine at the earliest in February?!

Good to hear that Silvia and Carl Gustaf have had the vaccine, but I do hope there was no "special treatment" and others have been vaccinated in Sweden already.

The queen had the vaccine when most of the UK's elderly population had already had it too (many elderly Brits are starting to have their second doses already).

I am a bit surprised that they got their first shot of vaccine so soon. According to the latest figures by Region Stockholm the inhabitants of the care homes in the region have mostly been offered the vaccines by now, the staff of the hospitals have also been offered the vaccine and the staff of care homes and home care units have been placed on a special list that will allow them to be vaccinated over a period of three months (that period of time is heavily criticised but the authorities refuse to budge) which means that the next category of people to be offered the vaccine are those over 70 first those with home care and then those without. The King and Queen seems to be getting it quite early on in this category but as its been said they got it on the advise of their doctors. There is the possibility that they're taking precautions because of health issues not known to the public.

Margareta Thorgren said to Svensk Damtidning that the king and queen went to Stenhammar recently and now they are there, as in the spring, for a period. This is because the pandemic continues, which means that they are more or less in quarantine.
