The Hague will once again receive a special vaccination site. In collaboration with the municipality of The Hague, GGD Haaglanden will start vaccinating against corona on Thursday 7 October in the Atrium of the city hall on Spui. The town hall is then an information and screening location.
On the coming Mondays and Thursdays, residents can ask questions about the corona vaccine and, if desired, immediately get the vaccination at city hall. They do not need to make an appointment for this. This is possible on Mondays from 8.00 to 00.30 hours and on Thursdays from 00.00 hours to 21.00 o’clock. People who enter through the main entrance at the Spui (on the side of the library) will immediately find the information and puncture point on their left.
“Together with GGD Haaglanden we set up injection locations that are easily accessible for residents of The Hague. The town hall is one of those places where many people come and it is a clearly recognizable point in the municipality,” says Alderman Kavita Parbhudayal of Care, Youth and Public Health. “With the range of information and injection points in the municipality, we want to give all residents who have experienced barriers, of whatever nature, the opportunity to obtain objective information and/or to immediately get a shot. We don’t just focus on people from neighborhoods with a lower vaccination coverage, but on all residents of The Hague”.Janssen and Pfizer availableVaccination is done with the Janssen vaccine or the Pfizer vaccine. You need 2 shots of the Pfizer vaccine, with at least 20 days between the first and second shot . With the Janssen vaccine, 1 shot is sufficient. 00-aged over and above can choose from the Janssen vaccine or the Pfizer vaccine. Are you younger than 20 years old or pregnant? Then you get the Pfizer vaccine. Wearing a mouth cap is also mandatory at this injection location. People also have to bring their ID (with BSN).
Director Annette de Boer of GGD Haaglanden: “We have been giving the corona vaccinations at three central locations for some time now. The Hague (Sportlaan) and region (Appelgaarde, Leidschendam-Voorburg and Mozartlaan, Delft). In keeping with The Hague’s approach to vaccination in a district-oriented manner, since June, community centres, health centers and libraries have also been vaccinated. We also use a mobile bulletin box. And since last Friday October 1, we also vaccinate in mosques in The Hague. There we also help people from the neighborhood who are not affiliated with the mosques or who are non-believers”. Wijkgericht vaccinating at sophisticated locations fits in with the aim of the Municipality of The Hague and GGD Haaglanden to maximize the vaccination coverage. In the neighborhood and target group-oriented approach, the municipality and GGD work together with various partners in the city.
