Four people probably received


the wrong corona vaccine Four people probably received the wrong vaccine against COVID-19 at the injection site in Middenmeer, in the top of North Holland.

They were supposed to be given Moderna, but they were probably vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine.

The GGD does not know who the four are and therefore approaches all people who received a shot around the time of the error.

It is about three hundred people.



According to GGD Hollands Noorden, it was probably a human error.

That came to light when the vaccination site was short of four AstraZeneca vaccines at the end of the day on Friday.

Ministry is considering injection locations at festivals


The Ministry of Health, together with the GGDs, is looking at ways in which people who do not respond to a vaccination invitation can still be tempted to have a corona jab. According to a spokesperson, this includes mobile sampling locations at festivals and in the catering industry.



At the moment, GGDs are already working with

mobile injection locations

, such as buses. They go to places where fewer people show up for a shot, such as "neighbourhoods with a low socio-economic status". For example, prick campaigns have already been held on the market in Rotterdam. "It really differs per region," said the ministry spokesman. "This kind of action is not necessary everywhere."



The willingness to vaccinate is relatively lowest among young people.

That is why the option for prick campaigns at festivals and in the catering industry is also on the table.

"Everything is already being looked at, discussed and investigated," said the ministry.

"And this summer, when the mass vaccination campaign is over, we will look at which options are needed towards which target groups."

There may also be a national campaign day to draw extra attention to the importance of vaccination.

The kingdom campaigns every year to bring the millions of Moroccans living abroad to Morocco during the summer holidays to visit relatives and spend money.

Last year the campaign was canceled due to the pandemic and this year too there are problems that will prevent Moroccans from spending the summer holidays in the country.

London postpones end of lockdown for four weeks due to delta variant


The British government wants to wait four weeks longer before lifting the lockdown in England. There, all restrictions on social contacts should have expired on June 21. British media already called this 'Freedom Day', but Monday evening it turned out that Prime Minister Boris Johnson does not yet dare to fully reopen society.



Johnson said at a news conference that the reopening will be postponed to July 19. He is concerned about the rapid spread of the delta variant of the virus, which originates from India. The British authorities say the new variant is 60 percent more contagious than the alpha variant of the virus, also known internationally as the British variant.



The delay should allow authorities to give millions of additional people a second vaccine dose before the restrictions are lifted.

By July 19, according to Johnson, about two-thirds of adults should be fully vaccinated.

This means they are better protected than if they have only had one shot.

Bruls: Taking into account a summer full of nuisance


The Netherlands must take into account more nuisance this summer. Security Council chairman Hubert Bruls is concerned about the "after-effects of the lockdown". According to him, this manifests itself in enormous crowds in the outdoor area and illegal parties. "People have a great need to go outside."



In his city of Nijmegen alone, several meetings were held this weekend in, among other things, parks, which attracted hundreds of young people. "Sitting inside for months has to go. We will continue to suffer from that for a while," the mayor expects.



The number of nuisance complaints increased significantly during the corona crisis.

People are more at home, hear more and can have less.

He predicts that this will continue for a while.

"This summer it's give and take. We have to accept that people, especially young people, need to go outside. That will cause nuisance. Keeping that in check is a big challenge for me."
