First vaccination figures for autumn round of COVID-19 repeat vaccination

From this week on, RIVM will start posting updates on vaccination figures for the autumn round of the repeat vaccination against COVID-19. The autumn round started last week, on 19 September 2022. Up to and including Sunday 25 September, more than 261,500 repeat vaccinations had been administered in the autumn round. Most of the repeat vaccinations administered last week were in the age group of 80 years and older. Vaccination coverage for the repeat vaccination among people over 80 has now reached 11.9%.

The repeat vaccination is available to everyone aged 12 years and older who has completed the basic series of COVID-19 vaccinations. The first invitations will be sent to people aged 60 years and older, people who will turn 60 this year, people in medical risk groups, and care workers who have contact with patients or clients. People can get the repeat vaccination starting from 3 months after their last COVID-19 vaccination or 3 months after a SARS-CoV-2 infection. 

As of today, people born in 1949 can make an appointment. More information about COVID-19 vaccination, who will be invited and when is provided at Government.nl

  2. People who are eligible for a repeat vaccination against COVID-19 in the autumn round are over-60s, people under 60 who are invited for the seasonal flu vaccine every year, care workers and everyone over 12 who wants to get a repeat vaccination against COVID-19. Everyone must have completed their basic series of COVID-19 vaccinations before they are eligible for a repeat vaccination against COVID-19.  
  3. People who are vaccinated by other vaccinators than the Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs) and have not given permission for registration in CIMS are not included in these figures. Therefore, these figures are slightly lower than the actual total.

The data flow between GGD-GHOR and RIVM is temporarily on hold. This is due to the preparations for data transfer related to the vaccinations in autumn 2022. It is therefore not yet possible to provide a weekly update on participation in COVID-19 vaccination in the Netherlands.  

Go to the Coronavirus Dashboard provided by the Dutch national government to see the daily situation update and the number of vaccinations that have been administered.
