What we do
COVID-19 in the Netherlands
RIVM advises the Dutch government on how to control the coronavirus as effectively as possible, monitors the COVID-19 outbreak and conducts research into SARS-CoV-2. RIVM is coordinating the implementation of the COVID-19 vaccinations in the Netherlands. Our institute is responsible for coordinating the storage and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines in the Netherlands (including the islands of Aruba, Bonaire, St Eustatius, Saba, Curaçao and St Maarten).
We provide weekly updates and data on COVID-19 in the Netherlands. In addition to our general COVID-19 weekly epidemiological update, we also publish a COVID-19 weekly update for the CAS and BES islands: the islands of Curaçao, Aruba and Sint Maarten and the special municipalities Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba.
Information for refugees from Ukraine
RIVM has developed a dedicated website for Ukrainian refugees in the Netherlands. This portal serves as a first point of access to our information about screening programmes, tuberculosis, vaccinations and more. The information is available in English, Ukrainian and Russian.
