The corona admission ticket (CTB) of more than half a million people will expire next Friday because they have not yet received a booster shot. Minister Kuipers writes to the House of Representatives that a maximum of 540,000 people are involved.
The validity of the CTB is limited to 180 days after infection and 270 days after vaccination. People who had their last shot before 1 May (one shot from Janssen or two from another approved vaccine) therefore need a booster to be able to travel without additional conditions. The validity of the booster is unlimited for the time being.
According to Kuipers, the shorter validity period may lead to more people getting a booster vaccination. The corona pass for access to, among other things, catering and cultural institutions can also be obtained after a negative test result or if you have recovered from corona.
