People in their 30's Able to Make Vaccination Appointment This Week
This week people in their 30's were able to make an appointment to get the vaccination - which makes for a large chunk of the staff at Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences and even some students. (Note: link not available outside of Netherlands). Very soon all those above the age of 18 will be invited and vulnerable teenagers 12 upwards will also be included.
The country is speeding towards its goal of getting everyone who wants to get vaccinated the jab before mid-July - this includes international students and staff at Wittenorg. Initially the government was aiming for end of June, but some delays in delivering the vaccination necessitated an adjustment.
People who want to make an appointment will need to answer a few easy questions relating to their current health and will also need to log on to their DigiD account - so keep that information handy. Once registered, you will also get a confirmation by email and SMS followed by a letter, which includes a form on your current health which you have to fill out and take with on the day you get vaccinated as well as identification documents and confirmation email, letter or SMS.
Those who are still in the queue can check the RIVM website for information on when it is their turn and which vaccination they are likely to receive - it is updated on a daily basis. You can also follow the RIVM or the minister of health, Hugo de Jonge, on Twitter to see when it's your turn.
