I am or going to be registered in the Personal Record Database (BRP)
If you are residing in the Netherlands and are registered in your city’s Personal Records Database (BRP) you are eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination. Having a registration in the BRP is a must. You will then receive an invitation letter from the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment).
If you have a medical condition for which you are under supervision of a general practitioner, you will receive your notice for vaccination via your GP.
Please note that you require a registration with the municipality on a legal address, documented by a proof of tenancy such as a rental agreement, for access to health care, a General Physician, and the Dutch vaccination programme. Please read up on the importance of legal residence and city registration here.
For students in a health care-related programme, who are doing an internship or are working in a care institution, it is advisable to ask your (internship) employer whether you might be eligible for a vaccination sooner. More information can be found here.
If you are planning on staying in the Netherlands for less than 4 months please make sure to register in the Register of Non-Residents (RNI). Registering is possible at one of the 19 RNI service desks in the Netherlands. During registration indicate that you would like to be kept up to date about the information on the vaccination process. You will then receive a bi-weekly email telling you when your year of birth can schedule an appointment to receive the vaccination, and how to go about scheduling the appointment. More information on the RNI registration procedure for the Municipality of Utrecht can be found here.
I am not registered in the Personal Record Database (BRP)
People who are registered in the Personal Records Database (BRP) automatically receive an invitation to get vaccinated against coronavirus. If you are not registered in the BRP, but you are staying in the Netherlands temporarily, you can get vaccinated under certain conditions.
If you are staying in the Netherlands for more than 1 month and are aged 18 or over, you can make an appointment by telephone to be vaccinated in the Netherlands.
