According to Professor Dirk Ramaekers, head of the vaccination taskforce, there will be no “vaccine shopping”.
Le people who register online to be vaccinated, will know at this time which vaccine will be administered to them: Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca, indicates Tuesday The newspapaer. This will not lead to some sort of “vaccine shopping”, believes Professor Dirk Ramaekers, head of the vaccination taskforce. “At no time will people be able to choose which vaccine will be injected.”
“Everything is going well in the vaccination centers”
Anyone who receives an SMS or an email with the invitation to be vaccinated and confirms this appointment online will then learn what type of vaccine he / she will receive. “At the moment, almost only AstraZeneca is being administered,” says Ramaekers. “It’s a very good vaccine. As De Standaard wrote this morning (Tuesday, editor’s note), the Scottish vaccination campaign shows that this vaccine, like that of Pfizer, considerably reduces hospital admissions. This effect is particularly visible in the over 65s ”.
Dirk Ramaekers is not worried that people will give up or wait for another vaccine. In practice, everything is going well in the vaccination centers, he says. “Nobody understands what happened in Veurne last weekend (70 of the 200 health care workers invited to be vaccinated did not show up, editor’s note). Maybe something went wrong with the invitations ”.
In accommodation centers and among nursing staff, the desire to be vaccinated is very high. “The more we address people who do not come into direct contact with Covid patients, the more we will focus on communication and motivation.”
