Making an appointment for COVID-19 vaccination

Everyone in the Netherlands aged 12 and over has been sent an invitation to get vaccinated. If you have not made an appointment to get vaccinated yet, you can do this online or by calling 0800 7070. At some locations you can get vaccinated without an appointment.

You can make an appointment with the municipal health service (GGD) online or by phone by calling 0800-7070. You will receive either the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine or the Moderna vaccine. Teenagers aged 12 to 17 can also make an appointment.

Moving your appointment

If you cannot come to your appointment, for example because you are ill or on holiday, you can make a new appointment by phoning 0800 7070.

Getting vaccinated when you turn 12

In the month after your 12th birthday, you’ll receive an invitation to get a COVID-19 vaccination. But you don’t have to wait until you’re invited. You can make an appointment as soon as you turn 12.

Walk-in vaccination centres

At some locations you can get vaccinated without an appointment. Go to to find a walk-in vaccination centre. You can do this for your first or second dose, or even both. If you are eligible for a third dose, you can get this at a walk-in centre too.

If you’ve already made an appointment, but you would rather go to a walk-in vaccination centre, cancel your appointment by calling the municipal health service (GGD) on 0800 7070. This stops vaccines being wasted.
