Vaccination strategy

Who will receive which COVID-19 vaccine, and when? See the comprehensive vaccination strategy of the Dutch government (in Dutch).

When will I be vaccinated?

Vaccination against COVID-19 started in the Netherlands in January. It is not possible to say when you will be able to get the vaccination. The schedule may still change, for example due to delays in vaccine deliveries. The Vaccination Strategy outlines when the first people in the Netherlands will be vaccinated against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, by whom and with which vaccine. This schedule may still change.

Prioritisation for medical risk groups

Based on the advisory report of the Health Council issued on 4 February 2021, a select number of patients that are at higher risk for medical reasons are eligible for early vaccination.
