1976-77 born invited for Covid-19 booster vaccination

Spread the love

People born in 1976 and 1977 can now schedule an appointment for a COVID-19 booster vaccination by the Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs).

This can only be done online, via www.coronavaccinatie-afspraak.nl

. The booster vaccination can be scheduled from 3 months after the last COVID-19 vaccination or from 3 months after recovery from COVID-19. The vaccination sites will remain open during the holidays.

The GGD is asking people to schedule booster vaccinations online to prevent the national call center from overloading.

Appointment at home

People who are unable to travel to a GGD vaccination site on their own or with assistance, for health reasons, do not have to do anything at this time.

They will receive an extra notice for a booster vaccination at home.

mRNA vaccines

The booster vaccination involves an mRNA vaccine (Moderna or Pfizer). It does not matter which vaccine was received before.

People cannot choose which.

Omicron

Until recently, the guideline in the Netherlands was to give the booster vaccination 6 months after the last vaccination.

Due to the rapid spread of the Omicron variant, this has now been shortened to 3 months.

As a result, more people will quickly have access to better protection against serious illness due to COVID-19.

This is in the interest of public health. Earlier this year, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) gave the green light for a booster vaccination 3 months after the last basic vaccination.
