While waiting for other possible arrivals on the European market, Belgians are being vaccinated with products from the firms Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca. Citizens who wish to be vaccinated have no choice and can be administered one of the three vaccines, even if there are exceptions, especially for those over 55 years after with the product of AstraZeneca.
But, according to media from the Mediahuis group, it is possible for our neighbors to the north of the country to know which vaccine will be administered to them when they go to the vaccination center when their turn comes.
“A surprise for us too”
Indeed, because of a flaw, people who are invited to be vaccinated by text or email and who confirm their appointment via the internet know what vaccine they will receive. “It’s true”, confirms Joris Moonens, spokesperson for Agence Zorg en Gezondheid to our colleagues from Nieuwsblad. “It was also a surprise for us,” he adds. “If you confirm your appointment online, move it or reject it, it says the vaccine you will receive.”
Nothing will be put in place to correct this problem. Indeed, on the side of the Zorg en Gezongeid Agency, it is estimated that people who carefully follow the information know, depending on their profile, what doses they will receive.
