Plans for a new policy on vaccinations

The government wants to make it easier for people to get the vaccinations they need.

Plans for a new policy on vaccinations

The Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport, the Health Council of the Netherlands and the Healthcare Institute of the Netherlands are working on a new policy on vaccinations. The idea is to improve people’s access to all available vaccines, including vaccines that do not fall under the national vaccination programme or the influenza prevention programme.

Recommendations for the new vaccinations policy

The Health Council and the Healthcare Institute are drawing up recommendations for the new policy on vaccinations. They will in any case advise on vaccination policy for whooping cough (pertussis) and shingles (herpes zoster).
