Table 1: Number of people who received a first and possibly also second dose of COVID-19 vaccine 1, weeks 1 through 35, 2021, by type of vaccinator.

  1. COM = Comirnaty® (Pfizer/BioNTech); SPX = Spikevax® (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 start date in the table refers to the start date of the oldest birth year within the birth cohort to which the start date refers. Information on start dates of groups of persons who were eligible for vaccination at a different time than other persons in their birth year, such as care workers, can be found in the update published on 10 August 2021. The people in this table who were born in 1956-1960 do not include the entire age group of people living at home, since the majority of those were vaccinated by their GP; these are mostly care workers (from 06 January 2021) and inhabitants of the Wadden Islands (from 16 February 2021). People born in 1955, 1954 and 1953 may also be vaccinated by their GP. This happened if the GP had supplies of the vaccine (VAX) left over after vaccinating people who were born in 1956-1960. Young people born in 2009 will not all be invited at the same time, as this group must turn 12 before being vaccinated. The entire group of young people born on or before 30 June 2009 were invited all at once. Young people born in or after July 2009 can make an appointment after their birthday.
  3. Vaccination data for people who are vaccinated by their GP or by other vaccinators is registered in CIMS, the national registration system, if they give permission for their personal data to be registered. As a result, the number of vaccinations administered by GPs and other vaccinators and registered in CIMS does not provide a comprehensive overview. To obtain the most comprehensive overview possible of the number of vaccinations administered by GPs and other vaccinators, the number of doses issued to vaccination sites as ordered by RIVMNational Institute for Public Health and the Environment is used to estimate the total number. 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 within 4 weeks. RIVM takes 1% wastage into account and assumes 6 doses per vaccine vial for COM, 10 doses per vaccine vial for SPX, 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.
  4. Second doses of VAX were 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. In these figures, it is assumed that no more vaccines were administered by GPs after 7 July 2021, although some GPs may still be vaccinating patients in actual practice.
  5. For the distribution of first and second doses, the same assumption is used for VAX as for vaccinations by GPs (see above). For SPX, 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.
  6. 206,682 estimated vaccinations administered by other vaccinators, and 588,295 vaccinations administered by the GGD, involved JANSS. These vaccinations are only displayed in the ‘First dose’ category, since 1 dose of this vaccine is sufficient.
  7. The number of vaccinations administered by the GGD listed under ‘Second dose’ may be higher than the number listed for the GGD under ‘First dose’. From 16 July 2021 on, it was possible to get the second vaccine dose from the GGD even if the first dose was administered by a different vaccinator.

Table 2: Estimated turnout and vaccination coverage for COVID-19 vaccination, week 1 to 36, 20211-7 

Age group Birth years Vaccination turnout Vaccination coverage (full vaccination)
12 years and older 2009 and before 83.1% 79.0%
18 years and older 2003 and before 85.6% 81.7%
  1. Source: data provided by GGD GHOR Nederland from CoronIT, supplemented by the estimated number of first and second doses administered by GPs and other vaccinators, denominator label: number of people by age, Statistics Netherlands (CBS), January 2020.
  2. People under 80 years old who have already had COVID-19 will only need one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. People who only received a first vaccination from the GGD, other than the Janssen vaccine, and had received a positive COVID-19 test result from the GGD at least 8 weeks prior to vaccination and/or self-reported having had COVID-19, are included in the calculation of the vaccination coverage. As a result, the vaccination coverage in this table may differ from the percentage for 18 years and older as reported on the website of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
  3. The term ‘turnout’ is used to indicate what percentage of the population has received at least one dose in a vaccination series. The term ‘vaccination coverage’ is used to indicate what percentage of the population is fully vaccinated.
  4. The turnout and vaccination coverage for 18 years and older also includes vaccinations of people aged 12 years and older administered by GPs and other vaccinators, because the number of vaccinations administered by these vaccinators has been estimated based on logistical data, in which it is not possible to sort the data by birth year. This is expected to be a small group of people and will not have a major effect on turnout and vaccination coverage for the group aged 18 and over. In addition, the persons in the group for which the age is unknown are included in the category of 12 years and older, since this concerns the entire population eligible for vaccination. The category of people aged 18 years and older does not include this entire group. The turnout and vaccination coverage for people aged 12-17 years based on registered vaccinations in CoronIT and CIMS is displayed in Figures 1 and 2 of this report. Due to the factors listed above, it is not possible to calculate the turnout and vaccination coverage by subtracting these figures for the group aged 18 years and older from the group aged 12 years and older.
  5. People who have been vaccinated by the GGD with the Janssen vaccine are included in both turnout and vaccination coverage, since this is a single-dose vaccine.
  6. 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 turnout and vaccination coverage. This applies for example to some of the homeless people, asylum-seekers, migrant workers and sailors. This means that the turnout is somewhat overestimated.
  7. People who have already had COVID-19 will only need one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Since our dataset currently does not include sufficient data on this, however, for the time being these people will be counted among the group of people who have been fully vaccinated (except for those who received the Janssen vaccine).
  8. Young people born in 2009 will not all be invited at the same time, as this group must turn 12 before being vaccinated.
     The entire group of young people born on or before 30 June 2009 were invited all at once. Young people born in or after July 2009 can make an appointment after their birthday. For the calculation of turnout and vaccination coverage in this table, the denominator is an estimate of the number of young people who will turn 12 years old in the current week.

  1. Week numbers are calendar weeks (ISO 8601): week 1 = 4-10 January 2021, week 2 = 11-17 January 2021, etc.
  2. Source: data provided by GGD GHOR Nederland from CoronIT, supplemented by data from CIMS (COVID vaccination Information and Monitoring System) for other vaccinators, denominator label: number of inhabitants by birth year, CIMS, 2021. These figures do not provide a comprehensive overview of vaccination turnout by birth year, because they do not include all vaccinations administered by general practitioners or other vaccinators, only those vaccinations that are registered in CIMS. Vaccinations previously registered in CIMS may not still be listed in CIMS; this is, for example, the case if individuals withdraw their consent to registration.
  3. In contrast to the other birth years, people born in 1956-1960 have primarily been vaccinated with VAX via their GP. The figures for vaccinations given by the GP are based on the vaccinations registered in CIMS. VAX was temporarily not administered from 15-23 March 2021 and from 3-5 April 2021.
  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 somewhat overestimated.
  5. 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.
  6. Young people born in 2009 will not all be invited at the same time, as this group must turn 12 before being vaccinated. The entire group of young people born on or before 30 June 2009 were invited all at once. Young people born in or after July 2009 can make an appointment after their birthday. To calculate vaccination turnout in this figure, the numerator used here is all young people born in 2009. If the 11-year-olds were not included, then vaccination turnout for birth years 2004-2009 would be 57%.
