Do you prefer to make an appointment?
There are two ways to go about this: schedule an appointment online (NL and EN, use your DigiD).
You can also schedule your appointment by telephone. The national phone service can be reached at 0800 - 7070. Please have your Citizen Service Number (BSN) ready. The operator will ask you a few questions and schedule two appointments for you. This is because the vaccination consists of two injections.
Need help getting there?
If you do not have access to transportation to the vaccination site, you can ask someone you know for help. You can bring someone with you.
- Do you use accessible public transit shuttles (AOV) or Valys? If so, you can use those as well. If you do not have an AOV card, you can contact 0800-0643 to request one.
- Volunteers from Voor Elkaar in Amsterdam are happy to help elderly people to make an appointment or arrange transport to the vaccination site. Please call Voor Elkaar in Amsterdam: 020 - 767 0031.
After the vaccination
After the vaccination, you will sit in a waiting room for another 15 minutes to see if an allergic reaction occurs. A doctor is present at all times.
Please take these with you to the appointment:
- Your ID card or passport*
- A face mask
- Clothing that allows easy access to your upper arm.
You can bring someone to the appointment to help you.
*undocumented persons are welcome without a passport or an ID card
Possible side effects
For a few days after the vaccination, you may experience muscle pain or fever. This is normal. Do you have any concerns? Please contact your doctor.
Have you been vaccinated? If so, there is a good chance that you will not become ill or will feel less ill after an infection with the coronavirus. It is not yet known whether someone who has been vaccinated can still spread the virus. For this reason, you should still follow the generally applicable coronavirus rules after the vaccination.
We can imagine that you still have questions about the coronavirus vaccines and the vaccination process itself. You can find more information about on the website of the Dutch government.
