Millions of corona pricks in the coming weeks: where are we now and what can we expect?

What are the expectations for the coming period? More than 10.6 million injections must have been taken by 6 June. At that time, the ministry is counting on more than 11.8 million vaccines delivered. Most of this comes from BioNTech / Pfizer: more than 7 million.

The GGD wants to put a million injections next week. “If the number of vaccines delivered is sufficient, that number should be increased to two million by week in the coming weeks,” said a spokesman.

Who’s turn now?

From this week on, people born in 1963, 1964 and 1965 will be given a vaccination. The approximately 450,000 people born in 1963 and 1964 can expect a letter on the mat as of today. They have been able to make an appointment online since last Sunday.

The people who were born in 1965, and thus turn 56 years old this year, have been able to make an appointment online since last night. It is not yet known when it is the turn of the group of people with the year of birth 1966.

It is also the turn of the group of vulnerable Dutch people, for example people who get the flu shot every year. But the number of agreements made among this group is still a bit behind, says a spokesperson for the RIVM.

Of the 1.5 million people who received an invitation, about 670,000 had made an appointment by this morning. “But a number of people from the group of vulnerable will receive an invitation today, so it is still a bit too early to draw conclusions.” The spokesperson also mentions the May holiday as a possible reason that not many people from this group have made an appointment yet.
