Table 1: Number of people who received a first and possibly also second dose of COVID-19 vaccine 1, weeks 1 through 28, 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 Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs) 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/SPX 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. From 16 July 2021 on, people who have been vaccinated with VAX as a first dose will have the opportunity to be vaccinated with COM by the GGD for their second dose. As long as these vaccinations are not yet recognisable as a second dose in the data, they will be counted as a first dose, which is the case if the first vaccination was administered by a vaccinator other than the GGD.
  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 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.
  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. It is assumed that no more vaccines will be administered by GPs after 7 July 2021.
  6. 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.
  7. 206,664 estimated vaccinations administered by other vaccinators, and 546,414 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.

Figure 1: Cumulative turnout for at least one COVID-19 vaccination by age group and week, weeks 1-28, 2021. 16

  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 age group, Statistics Netherlands (CBS), 2021. 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. In contrast to the other age groups, people aged 60-64 years have primarily been vaccinated with VAX via their GP, and these vaccinations are only registered in CIMS after receiving permission to do so. Therefore, this group cannot be compared with other age groups on a one-to-one basis.
  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. 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. From 16 July 2021 on, people who have been vaccinated with VAX as a first dose will have the opportunity to be vaccinated with COM by the GGD for their second dose. As long as these vaccinations are not yet recognisable as a second dose in the data, they will be counted as a first dose, which is the case if the first vaccination was administered by a vaccinator other than the GGD.

  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 with the Janssen vaccine are included in this figure, since this is a single-dose vaccine.
