From shot to trot. You could be out boogying the night away the day after you get the Janssen vaccine. After receiving this one-shot coronavirus vaccine, you can create your vaccine certificate in the CoronaCheck app.
So good news if you’ve opted for the Janssen vaccine. Since last week, all adults in the Netherlands could opt for the remaining doses of the one-shot vaccine. In the last week, more than 233,000 appointments were made, reports the NOS.
Getting out and grooving is a big reason many young adults have opted for this jab. Since it only requires one-shot to be fully vaccinated you can be out and about in no time. Dutch health minister Hugo de Jonge tweeted the good news earlier this week.
De belangstelling voor het Janssen-vaccin is groot. Inmiddels zijn er ruim 233.000 afspraken gemaakt. Vrijdag werden de eerste prikken gezet, waaronder bij @ggdru, waar ze er in de @jaarbeurs een echt feestje van maakten en tot 01:00 uur ‘s nachts doorprikten. #dansenmetjanssen🕺 pic.twitter.com/4Dg73Dj7X1

Not immediately protected
Despite this encouraging news, the Dutch government says that “from two weeks after the injection you are protected against the corona virus.” This is up to 66% protection against the virus and up to 85% protection against serious illness.
So how can you boogie so soon?
This might seem contradictory, but a spokesperson from the ministry of health told the NOS “immediately after the vaccination you are so well-protected that we think it is responsible to let you in.”
Hooray! So get on your dancing shoes and get ready to paint the town red, if you choose to get Janssen that is. 😉
What do you think of dancing the day after your vaccine? Is it too soon? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
