INFORMATION ABOUT VACCINATIONS

The Dutch Government is implementing the Covid-19 vaccination schedule and strategy.

There is a vaccination schedule for people who do not work in healthcare. And a vaccination schedule for health and care workers. There are many factors that influence the coronavirus vaccination schedule.

When it’s time for your population group  (including the medical and high risk group) to be vaccinated, you’ll receive an invitation by letter or email. Always use the first invitation you receive. There is no need to contact your medical specialist or GP. The invitation will inform you about the location and time. This could be at a large vaccination center run by the municipal health service (GGD), or at your GP’s office.

You need to be registered at a GP practice (e.g. IHCH GP Family Practice)* in the Netherlands in order to receive an invitation for vaccination according to the Netherlands Covid-19 Vaccination Scheme.

*Please note that the IHCH Polyclinic Specialist Care (Medical Specialists) is not a GP Practice and therefore will not be administering Covid-19 vaccines.
