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 Wednesday, 12 May. Is updated every three weeks.

Deliveries and stock

How many vaccine doses can be administered depends on how many doses we receive. Vaccine doses are delivered to the Netherlands every week. After quality control the majority of these are available for vaccination. We keep some doses in a safely stock to ensure enough vaccine doses for both appointments the first few days and the second dose. This page shows how many doses of vaccine were delivered to the Netherlands and how many doses are in stock. To find out more about the information on this page, go to ‘Explanation of the data presented’.
