Third jab on the horizon? GGDs ready for a possible third vaccination shot

Dutch GGDs are locked and loaded to administer a possible third shot of the coronavirus vaccine as soon as the government gives the green light. 🚦 

The cabinet’s decision on whether fully vaccinated people should receive the booster shot can be made as soon as the end of September, according to NU.nl, based on recommendations from the OMT and the Health Council — sleeves up! 💉

The update comes in light of the closure of major vaccination sites in Rotterdam, Utrecht, Amersfoort, and Houten after a predicted decrease in vaccination appointments after most people received both of their jabs by now. The staff of the closed locations were strategically reassigned to work in regions with lower vaccination coverage.

Too many uncertainties

More than 22 million vaccine doses have been administered in the Netherlands according to the latest Coronavirus Dashboard numbers, with a goal to reach a vaccination rate of over 85%. 💪

So far, the booster third dose of the coronavirus vaccine is planned on being administered in some countries. Countries are taking different approaches, such as priority-based injections in Turkey where only the elderly may be re-injected.

But the GGDs’ umbrella organization, GGD GHOR, does not want to assume any future scenarios in regards to the vaccination program in the Netherlands. 🔮 “The focus is on the present” explains a GGD GHOR spokesperson.

What kind of approach do you think the Netherlands should take to the third jab? Tell us in the comment below.

  1. At what point will people wake up and stop taking these jabs?

    There is going to be a whole lot of two jab people who are not going to be interested in taking a third, fourth, fifth, etc.

  2. Take science seriously this time around! As an Israeli and a psychologist I urge you to give the third vaccine now, since there is little hope for many otherwise – as we’ve all learnt from the recent past.

  3. they’re all brainwashed into thinking some experimental vaccine will prevent the common flu or cold!
    they should focus on ridding our bodies of parasites which are causing these diseases in the first place. Ivermectin does that!
    Then follow up with pre-biotic and probiotics for healthy gut flora!
