Hecht GGD Hollands Midden has opened a temporary vaccination site in the town hall at Leidseweg 25 in Voorschoten. You can get your COVID-19 vaccine here without an appointment on Friday, November 17, December 1, and December 8 from 2:00pm to 6:00pm.
“The pop-up coronavirus injection sites are mainly for people for whom it is difficult to reach our usual injection sites,” says Margarete Beckdam, vaccination manager at Hecht GGD Hollands Midden. “You can’t schedule an injection at a pop-up. As a result, it can only be busy when you arrive. So, take into consideration the wait time if you want to get an injection at a pop-up.” Want more certainty about when it’s your turn? Then make an appointment in Alphen aan den Rijn, Gouda or Leiden via www.planjeprik.nl(external link) or 0800 – 7070.
Corona shot at home
“There are also people who are unable to come to the vaccination site due to a serious illness or disability. “We are injecting these people at home,” adds Margaret Beckdam. If this applies to you, you can contact 0800 – 2077.
This round of vaccination is for people most at risk of serious illness from COVID-19: people over 60, adults offered the flu vaccine, children and adults at high medical risk and pregnant women. Health care workers can also get the shot to protect the vulnerable people they care for. This also applies to people who have a vulnerable family member. The vaccination round will continue until the end of 2023. The Corona vaccine will remain available to pregnant women and people with high medical risks. The vaccine used for injection has been adapted to the type of virus currently circulating widely.
With or without invitation
Only people over 60 years of age will receive an invitation letter. This will be done in parts, so there are still invitations on the way. Some people receive an invitation that already contains the appointment date, time and location. Other groups eligible for this round of vaccination will not receive an invitation. Margaret Beckdam: “Do you already have an appointment for an injection at Alphen aan den Rijn, Gouda or Leiden, but would you rather go to a pop-up corona injection site? Then please cancel the appointment. Then there is room for one more in our regular locations.
