As of today, those born in 2001 and 2002 will be able to book their coronavirus vaccinations in the Netherlands. This means that nearly all adults will be able to book their appointments. All that remains are the 18-year-olds who were born in 2003.
Minister for Health, Hugo de Jonge announced on his Twitter this morning that both year groups will be able to book appointments today. As of 10 AM, those born in 2001 are able to book, and from 1 PM, those born in 2002 will follow.
How to book your vaccine appointment in the Netherlands
You can either book an appointment using this website, (you must log in using your DigiD) or you can call the GGD on 0800 7070. If you do choose to call, make sure to have your burgerservicenummer (BSN) ready. You received this number when you registered at your local municipality.
When you book your vaccine you will be given the dates for both your first and second jab. You should also receive a text and email confirmation — happy booking!
