The vaccination strategy in the Netherlands

The vaccination strategy in the Netherlands

Everyone aged 12 and over in the Netherlands got invited for vaccination against COVID-19 to help get the virus under control. The Dutch government set up a vaccination strategy that will ultimately lead to fewer measures and more freedom.

The current corona measures will stay in place until further notice, even when you’re vaccinated!

What must I do to get vaccinated?

The only thing that you have to do is to make sure you’re registered at your municipality. You will automatically receive an invitation. Upon receipt of the invitation, you can make your vaccination appointment by telephone.

Where will I be vaccinated?

Most likely you will be vaccinated in one of the large vaccination centres, led by the GGD, the municipal health service. It may also be that your family doctor will vaccinate you and your possible family members aged 18 and above.

Which vaccine will I get?

The Dutch government has decided which groups will get which vaccine. You will receive either the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine or the Moderna vaccine., depending on the supply.

Is vaccination in the Netherlands mandatory?

No, it’s not. You can make your own choice if you want to be vaccinated or not. But there may be situations in which you will have to prove that you do not suffer from covid-19. You can do this either by a (recent) negative test or by proof of vaccination.

“I am really happy with the service you provided throughout the processes. I can hardly think of any improvement suggestion. your IT system is also very handy.”
