All international HZ students who are registered with the Dutch municipality authorities will be invited to get a vaccination against COVID-19 in the Netherlands. You will automatically receive this invitation via postal mail. It is therefore important that the address at which you are registered with the municipality is accurate.
Make an appointment
If you already have a DigiD, you can make an appointment via coronatest.nl (in English) as soon as it is your age cohort’s turn. This way you do not have to wait until you receive the invitation. If you do not have Digid yet, you can apply for it here. It is also possible to make an appointment by phone, after you received the invitation via postal mail.
Please note that if you make your appointment online, you may have to go to a vaccination location that is further away. If you make an appointment by phone, you can often go to a location nearby. The closest vaccination location is in Middelburg.
Do I need a BSN number to be vaccinated?
No, that is not necessary. You can also get vaccinated without a BSN number (citizen service number). You will then receive a general registration number, 999. As soon as you have received your BSN, you can apply for a Digid here. You then have to inform the GGD that your BSN needs to be changed. The International Office can help you with this. After that, you can download the app and your vaccination status in the app.
How can I get a booster?
The booster vaccination is given per year of birth. You will receive an invitation. If you keep an eye on the announcements, you can see when it is your turn for an appointment and perhaps make it a little earlier.
