People born in 1994 can make an appointment for a corona vaccination on Monday from 10:00, says outgoing minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health).

This is how vaccination goes in the Netherlands

  • More than twelve million injections have now been taken in the Netherlands.

  • Four vaccines in use: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen.

  • A vaccination reduces the risk of getting sick.

  • Vaccination also reduces the chance of transmitting the coronavirus.

  • Vaccines still seem to protect against variants.

These people can make an appointment via the website or call the national appointment number (0800-70 70).

They don't have to wait until they receive the invitation to do so.

People from 1994 are 26 and 27 years old.

The shot is taken by the GGD, which has 136 locations throughout the Netherlands.

People from a year in which it is their turn do not have to show an invitation letter at the injection location.

However, they must bring proof of identity, show an appointment confirmation (for example in the mail on a telephone) and they must complete a questionnaire.

It is available both online and at the injection locations.
