The pace of the vaccination campaign in the Netherlands is further accelerated and more than seven million corona vaccines have now been administered.

Also in the countries around us more and more punctures are currently being made.

This is how it goes there.

In Belgium, one in ten inhabitants is fully vaccinated

The five millionth injection was taken at our southern neighbors on Friday.

Nearly 1.2 million Belgians have now had two injections and are therefore fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

That amounts to about 13 percent of the adult population and 10 percent of the total population.

The vaccination campaign at the southern neighbors officially started on January 5.

About 700,000 injections were taken last week.

How is vaccination going in the Netherlands?

  • According to the most recent figures on the corona dashboard, 7,022,775 injections have been taken.

  • Every week, the RIVM publishes a report on the state of vaccination.

    Last Tuesday's report reported more than 6.4 million vaccinations.

  • Last Tuesday, nearly five million people had had one shot.

    More than 1.4 million of them had also had a second.

36 percent of Germans have had at least one injection

Almost 30 million inhabitants have had at least one shot against the corona virus, almost 36 percent.

More than 8.8 million of them have now also had a second injection, with which they have been fully vaccinated.

That amounts to about 10 percent of the total German population, according to the most recent figures from the Robert Koch Institute.

The country is at a fast pace: at the moment, 710,000 people are given a shot every day.

By way of comparison: in the Netherlands there are currently more than 131,000.

Due to a fully booked vaccination center in Schwelm, Germany, a temporary drive vaccination site was set up.

Luxembourg produces nearly seven thousand injections a day

Luxembourg, with roughly 614,000 inhabitants, currently produces 6,985 injections per day.

In total, care workers have administered at least one injection to nearly 192,000 residents.

More than 78,000 of them have also received a second dose.

In Luxembourg, too, a start was made on the vaccination of care workers and vulnerable elderly people.

The country is now in the sixth and final phase of the vaccination strategy, which means that all people between the ages of 16 and 54 who have not yet had a vaccination can make a vaccination appointment.

These vaccines are used by the countries:

  • Belgium: Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen, AstraZeneca (41+)

  • Germany: Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen, AstraZeneca (60+)

  • Luxembourg: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Janssen (soon)

  • United Kingdom: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca (40+)

  • France: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca (55+), Janssen (55+)

68 percent of residents in the United Kingdom have already received an injection

More than 55 million vaccinations have been taken since the start of the vaccination campaign in the United Kingdom.

With all those injections, more than 68 percent of the adult population (36 million people) has been injected at least once against the corona virus.

Nineteen million inhabitants also received a second dose.

The vaccination campaign in the United Kingdom is going smoothly: an average of 514,000 vaccinations per day has been administered in the area in recent days.

England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales were therefore already able to announce and partly implement large-scale easing.

More than eight million French are fully vaccinated

18.5 million inhabitants of France have received at least one shot against the corona virus, according to the latest figures from Tuesday.

8.3 million of them have already received a second dose, which is 15.7 percent of adults.

In the country with 67 million inhabitants, 35 percent of the adult population has had at least one shot against the corona virus.

In the past week, an average of 500,000 injections were taken per day.

The vaccination campaign, in combination with the measures, has resulted in a downward trend in the corona figures.

Prime Minister Jean Castex was cautiously optimistic about the situation in the country last week, but emphasized that the pressure on hospitals is still high.

The country is now taking the first steps in the relaxation process: the terraces, museums and shops will reopen on 19 May.
