Vaccination figures: 3 to 9 May 2021

By Sunday 9 May, it is estimated that more than 6.4 million vaccinations had been administered in the Netherlands. Almost 5 million of those were first vaccinations, and over 1.4 million were second vaccinations. The daily number of doses administered is posted on the Coronavirus Dashboard

Last week, GPs started administering the second vaccination, primarily to people aged 60-64 years. People over 65 who did not respond to the invitation for vaccination earlier can still make an appointment: Calling all people over 65: make a vaccination appointment now

Number of vaccinations given
This weekly update is based on the number of vaccinations registered by the Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs) and estimates based on the number of doses delivered to other implementing parties in the vaccination programme. This estimate is updated frequently as more information becomes available.

  1. COM= Comirnaty® (Pfizer/BioNTech); MOD= COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna®; AZ= 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.
  2. The Municipal Public Health Services (GGDs) will vaccinate people living at home who are not mobile enough to travel to the GGD vaccination site (which will be applicable for older age groups more often than for younger age groups) and care workers. The start date in the table refers to the former group. On the Wadden Islands, vaccination already started from 16 February 2021 on for people aged 75-79 years (and 60-79 years for Vlieland and Schiermonnikoog). The GGD already started vaccinating care workers from 6 January on. In principle, people aged 60-64 years will be invited for vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine via their GP. The people aged 60-64 years in this table are therefore not the entire age group who are living at home, but primarily care workers (from 06 January 2021) and inhabitants of the Wadden Islands (from 16 February 2021). People born in 1955, 1954 and 1953 (aged 65-67 years) may also be contacted by their GP and offered a vaccination. This may happen if the GP has supplies of the vaccine (AstraZeneca) left over after vaccinating people born in 1956 to 1960. 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. 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 Comirnaty® (Pfizer/BioNTech), it is assumed that these doses are administered within 5 days (including the day of delivery). For all other vaccines, and if Comirnaty® (BioNTech/Pfizer) is distributed at -75°C, it is assumed that the doses will be administered within 14 days (including day of delivery). RIVM takes 1% wastage into account and assumes 6 doses per vaccine vial for Comirnaty® (Pfizer/BioNTech), 10 doses per vaccine vial for COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna®, 11 doses per vaccine vial for Vaxzevria® (AstraZeneca), and 5 doses per vaccine vial for COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen®. It is assumed that Vaxzevria® (AstraZeneca) 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 AZ will be administered from week 18 on; based on the rollout schedule for AZ and the number of inhabitants per province, the distribution for week 18 is assumed to be 60% first dose and 40% second dose for AZ vaccinations administered by GPs.
  5. 95,466 estimated vaccinations administered by other vaccinators involved vaccinations with COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen®. In all cases, this involves the first dose, since 1 dose of this vaccine is sufficient.
  6. For AZ, the same assumption is used as for vaccinations by general practitioners (see footnote 4). For MOD, all second doses are assumed to have been given exactly 4 weeks after the first dose. For COM, up to and including week 12, deliveries to care institutions that took place more than 3 weeks after the first delivery were 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
