Testing and vaccination
Testing for corona
Do you have symptoms that could indicate corona? Then get tested as soon as possible. For some countries, it is also compulsory to have a negative test in order to travel there. Even if you have no complaints, you will still have to be tested. On the website of the Rijksoverheid you can read all the information about testing.
Vaccinate against corona
On 6 January, vaccination against corona started in the Netherlands. First, all nurses will be vaccinated, then the most vulnerable Dutch people. After that, everyone else will follow. Vaccination is the most important step to return to a life without corona.
It is good to know that every vaccine that will soon be approved has been tested on tens of thousands of people. That way we know that it is safe and protects us well against the virus. A vaccination protects not only yourself, but also your family, friends and the vulnerable people around you. It is understandable if you have questions.
