Number of doses administered

3,182,836

This figure is a calculation of the total number of vaccine doses that have been administered. The calculation is based on the number of vaccine doses that have been delivered to the locations where injections are given. Read more about the calculation in the 'Explanation of the data presented'.

** Due to the pause from vaccinating with AstraZeneca for people younger than 60 years, it is uncertain how many injections will be given with this vaccine. Therefore, as of April 7, AstraZeneca is not included in the calculation. **

Willingness to be vaccinated

Coronavirus vaccination is not obligatory. But if everyone does get vaccinated, the virus will no longer be able to spread. It is therefore vital to know how many people are prepared to be vaccinated. Every three weeks, the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) conducts a survey to establish how many people want to be vaccinated. To find out more about the information on this page, go to ‘Explanation of the data presented’.

Last values obtained on Tuesday, April 6. Is updated every three weeks.
