A larger proportion of the vaccinated persons have been included in the national vaccination register in the past two weeks.

According to the RIVM, 77 percent of people vaccinated in the Netherlands are now in the register.

This is 10 percentage points more than two weeks ago, when the OMT warned that vaccination data should be shared more quickly.

According to the RIVM, there are mainly problems at healthcare institutions and GP practices.

Almost half of healthcare institutions and GP practices (44 percent) do not pass on the vaccinations within a day.

According to the OMT, the quick registration of vaccinations is important, because you will find out more quickly when the vaccines unexpectedly work less well.

If this is known, the vaccination program can be adjusted accordingly.

According to the advisory body, "a reliable view of vaccination coverage and vaccine effectiveness, for example by region and age, is essential".

Good registration is also important, according to the OMT, to keep an eye on any side effects.

According to the RIVM, the vaccination data must be submitted within one day.

As a result of the criticism of the incomplete registration, RIVM started calling GP practices and care institutions to ask them to pass on data after all.

The number of vaccines taken is an estimate

In order to provide an up-to-date picture of the number of vaccines taken, the RIVM makes an estimate.

The institute does this on the basis of the number of vaccines supplied to GP practices and healthcare institutions.

Even if all parties quickly pass on the information to RIVM, the national vaccination register will not contain all vaccinated people.

If you are vaccinated against COVID-19, you can choose not to share data with RIVM.

92 percent of the people vaccinated at the GGDs did give the institute permission to include their data in the registry.

Because people can also refuse that, there is another registration system.

This system does not contain any personal data, but must make it clear how many people in total have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

However, according to the OMT, this registration system was even more incomplete than the national vaccination register.
