The corona pop-up injection locations can be found in Roelofarendsveen in Sports Hall De Tweesprong on Thursday 9, 23 and 30 November and 7 December from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. and in Voorschoten in the town hall on Friday 17 November, 1 and 8 December from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. “Dates and times are subject to change. Therefore, always check www.ggdhm.nl/priklocations-corona before departure for the most up-to-date information. You will also find all addresses here,” according to the GGD.
“The corona pop-up injection locations are mainly intended for people for whom it is more difficult to get to our regular injection locations,” says Margreet Bekedam, vaccination manager at Hecht GGD Hollands Midden. “You cannot make an appointment for an injection at a pop-up. As a result, it can be busy just when you arrive. Therefore, take into account a waiting time if you want to get a shot at a pop-up.”
Do you want more certainty about when it is your turn? Then schedule an appointment in Alphen aan den Rijn, Gouda or Leiden via www.planjeprik.nl or 0800-7070.
“There are also people who are unable to come to a vaccination location due to a serious illness or disability. We inject these people at home,” adds Margreet Bekedam. “If this applies to you, you can call 0800-2077.”
This vaccination round is for people who are at a higher risk of becoming seriously ill from corona: people over 60, adults who are offered the flu shot, children and adults with a medically high risk and pregnant women, according to the GGD. “Only people over 60 will receive an invitation letter. This will be done in parts, so there are still invitations on the way.”
Healthcare workers can also get the shot to protect the people with vulnerable health for whom they care. This also applies to people with a vulnerable family member. The vaccination round will run until the end of 2023. The corona shot will remain available for pregnant women and people with a high medical risk. The vaccine used for the injection has been adapted to the variant of the virus that is currently circulating widely.
