Vaccination figures: 14 to 20 June 2021

By Sunday 20 June, it is estimated that nearly 13.9 million vaccinations had been administered in the Netherlands. More than 8.6 million of those were first vaccinations, and 4.4 million were second vaccinations. The daily number of doses administered is posted on the Coronavirus Dashboard.

Vaccination turnout is high

Vaccination turnout among all age groups is high or has increased significantly. Turnout has been high in the age groups over 65: between 84% and 92% for the first vaccination.

People aged 55-59 years have reached a turnout of 81% so far, while people aged 50-54 years are at 71% for the first vaccination. Turnout for people aged 45-49 and 40-44 has risen to 60% and 48% respectively.

The age groups that were invited most recently are showing an increase in turnout: the 35-39 age group is at 27%, the 30-34 age group is at 16%, and turnout among people aged 25-29 years is at 14%.

Vaccination turnout by municipality

The figure shows turnout by municipality among people over 65 years old who have received at least one vaccination. Regional differences in turnout are minimal. Most municipalities have seen a turnout of at least 85%. A figure showing turnout among people under 65 is expected to be published next week.

Vaccination coverage is increasing

Vaccination coverage indicates what percentage of the population has been fully vaccinated. This applies to people who have received two vaccinations with Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca, or one vaccination with Janssen. People who have received one vaccination after previously having had COVID-19 are also fully vaccinated. This final group is still counted among the group that has received one vaccination. In the data supplied to RIVMNational Institute for Public Health and the Environment , it is not yet possible to separate the number of people who have received one vaccination after having had COVID-19 from other people who have received one vaccination.

Vaccination coverage among people over 65 has increased and now ranges from over 65% to nearly 87%. Many age groups under 65 years old will be receiving their second vaccination in the next few weeks. Vaccination coverage will continue to increase as the vaccination programme progresses.

Data
Vaccination turnout is calculated on the basis of data from the Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs) and from other vaccinators, such as GPs, hospitals and care institutions. Data from other vaccinators comes from the national registration system (CIMS). RIVM has not yet received all the data. As a result, the vaccination records are not yet complete and the actual turnout is somewhat higher.

Technical malfunction at the GGD
Due to a technical malfunction at the GGD GHOR, a number of vaccinations on a number of days over the past two weeks were not fully reported to RIVM. Therefore, an estimate was provided based on the number of appointments scheduled on those days. This involves approximately 840,000 vaccinations. With this estimate, it is not possible to make a distinction according to age or first and second dose. For that reason, the 840,000 vaccinations have only been counted in the total number of vaccinations. The GGD is working to resolve the technical malfunction.

  1. COM = Comirnaty® (Pfizer/BioNTech); MOD = COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna®; VAX = Vaxzevria® (AstraZeneca); JANSS = COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen®. One dose of the Janssen vaccine is recommended to achieve full vaccination. For all other vaccines currently in use, two doses are recommended for full vaccination, with the exception of people who were previously infected, for whom one dose is sufficient.
  2. The Municipal Public Health Service (GGD) vaccinates people living at home who are mobile enough to travel to the GGD vaccination site (in groups by age), care workers (from 6 January 2021 on), people who are eligible for the influenza vaccination (from 6 May 2021), and young people aged 16-18 years living at home who are in medical high-risk groups (from 18 May 2021). The start date in the table refers to the age group. On the Wadden Islands, vaccination started from 16 February 2021 on for people aged 75-79 years (and 60-79 years for Vlieland and Schiermonnikoog), and from 25 May 2021 for people aged 18 years and older. People aged 60-64 years were initially primarily vaccinated with VAX via their GP; from 5 June 2021 on, they can also make an appointment for vaccination with COM/MOD via the GGD. The people aged 60-64 years in this table are mostly care workers (from 06 January 2021) and inhabitants of the Wadden Islands (from 16 February 2021). Therefore, this does not include everyone in this age group (living at home). People born in 1955, 1954 and 1953 (aged 65-67 years) may also be vaccinated by their GP. This may happen if the GP has supplies of the vaccine (VAX) left over after vaccinating people aged 60-64 years. This group may decide for themselves whether they accept the invitation from their GP or are vaccinated by the GGD. Finally, people living in a residential institution may sometimes also be vaccinated by the GGD.
  3. Due to incomplete transmission of vaccination data by GGD GHOR in CoronIT, some of the vaccinations administered by the GGD in weeks 23-24  of 2021 have been estimated based on the number of registered vaccination appointments, taking into account an average number of appointments that did not take place as planned. In total, this involves an estimated 840,411 vaccinations that have temporarily been registered as ‘age unknown’, with no distinction made between the first and second dose. For that reason, these vaccinations are only displayed in the ‘Total’ column, not in under ‘First dose’ and ‘Second dose’.
  4. A continuous data flow into the national registration system (CIMS: COVID-19 vaccination Information and Monitoring System) is not yet available for the number of people vaccinated by other vaccinating organisations (hospitals and institutions) and by GPs. Therefore, the number of doses issued to vaccination sites as ordered by RIVMNational Institute for Public Health and the Environment is temporarily used as an estimate for these vaccinators. For COM, it is assumed that these doses are administered within 5 days (including the day of delivery). For all other vaccines, and if COM is distributed at -75°C, it is assumed that the doses will be administered within 14 days (including day of delivery). From week 23 on, it is assumed that VAX is administered by GPs within 4 weeks. RIVM takes 1% wastage into account and assumes 6 doses per vaccine vial for COM, 10 doses per vaccine vial for MOD, 11 doses per vaccine vial for VAX, and 5 doses per vaccine vial for JANSS. It is assumed that VAX was not administered from 15-23 March 2021 and from 3-5 April 2021. This estimate is updated frequently as more information becomes available.
  5. Second doses of VAX will be administered from week 18 on; based on the rollout schedule for VAX and the number of inhabitants per province, the distribution of VAX administered by GPs is assumed to be 60% first dose and 40% second dose in week 18 and 70% first dose and 30% second dose in week 19. From week 20 on, 100% of deliveries are assumed to be second vaccine doses.
  6. For VAX, the same assumption is used as for vaccinations by general practitioners (see above). For MOD, up to and including week 21, all second doses are assumed to have been given exactly 4 weeks after the first dose; from week 22 on, the distribution according to first and second dose is based on the distribution in CIMS. For COM, up to and including week 12, deliveries to care institutions that took place more than 3 weeks after the first delivery are assumed to involve second vaccine doses. For COM deliveries from week 13 on, the first and second doses are allocated pro rata based on the distribution for other vaccinators as reported in the update on 30 March 2021 (i.e. 64% first dose, 36% second dose).  From week 17 on, COM deliveries to other vaccinators are all assumed to be second vaccine doses.
  7. 190,762 estimated vaccinations administered by other vaccinators, and 259,183 vaccinations administered by the GGD, involved JANSS. This vaccinations are only displayed in the ‘First dose’ column, since 1 dose of this vaccine is sufficient.

These figures do not provide a comprehensive overview of vaccination turnout by age group, because they do not include all vaccinations administered by general practitioners or other vaccinators, only those vaccinations that are registered in CIMS.

3 People aged 60-64 years are primarily vaccinated by their GP, and are therefore not included in this figure.

4 Vaccinated persons who are not registered in the Personal Records Database (Basisregistratie Personen, BRP) are included in the numerator but not in the denominator in calculating the vaccination turnout. This applies for example to some of the homeless people, asylum-seekers, migrant workers and sailors. This means that the turnout is slightly overestimated. Since this involves a limited number of people, it has hardly any influence.

5 People who have been vaccinated by the GGD with the Janssen vaccine are included in this figure. Vaccinations with the Janssen vaccine that were administered by other vaccinators are not yet incorporated into the source data, and have therefore not yet been included in this figure. 

6 The term ‘turnout’ is used to indicate what percentage of the population has received a specific dose in a vaccination series. The term ‘vaccination coverage’ is used to indicate what percentage of the population is fully vaccinated.

5 People who have already had COVID-19 will only need one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Since there is insufficient data on this, however, for the time being they will be counted among the group of people who have been vaccinated once.

6 People who have been vaccinated by the GGD with the Janssen vaccine are included in this figure, since this is a single-dose vaccine. Vaccinations with the Janssen vaccine that were administered by other vaccinators are not yet incorporated into the source data, and have therefore not yet been included in this figure.
