Booster shots and third shots

A booster shot is an extra shot for people who have been fully vaccinated. That is after one shot (with the Janssen vaccine or after going through a COVID-19 infection) or two shots (with Pfizer, Moderna or Astra Zeneca). A booster shot is only necessary if the protective effect of the first series of shots decreases too much after a while.

The third shot may improve immunity in some people with severe immune disorders, so-called 'immune-compromised patients'. Vaccinations sometimes work less well for them. After complete vaccination, they have built up too little resistance against corona.

Total number of booster shots and third shots

7,754,197

This number includes third shots and estimated booster shots administered by other providers.

This means that 53.3% of the 18+ population has been fully vaccinated and has received a booster vaccination against COVID-19.

The number of third shots has not been updated, because of this the total number of booster shots and third shots is therefore several dozen higher.

This graph is no longer updated.

This graph shows the percentage of the population that wishes to be vaccinated against COVID-19. It includes people who have already been vaccinated and people who have not yet been vaccinated but want to be. Percentages are given for the overall population and by age group. The figures for this graph come from a survey conducted every three weeks.

In reality, willingness to be vaccinated is probably slightly lower. Read the explanation in the Explanation of the data presented.

This survey was carried out between Tuesday, 5 October en Monday, 11 October. Is updated every three weeks.
