Minister of Health Hugo de Jonge paid a visit to what is now called the largest vaccination location in the Netherlands: the XXL vaccination location of the health services (GGD) at RAI Amsterdam. The minister was received by Simone Kukenheim, Alderman for Care of the Municipality of Amsterdam, who previously visited the RAI for this purpose.
Minister De Jonge visited the new GGD location in the RAI, which will open on Friday 24 December, increasing the capacity to 17,000 booster shots per day. “This is really very impressive. The enormous numbers and the enormous upscaling that people are doing here in Amsterdam is really something to bow down to. Towards the health services, the city of Amsterdam, and everyone who helps to make this possible here" said Minister De Jonge.
Multiple vaccination locations at the RAI: booster shot by appointment
People who are up for the booster shot can make an appointment online. By making this appointment, the administrative work is done digitally. This speeds up the process on site, allowing capacity to be doubled compared to free entry. For the booster shot, people enter through entrance C of the RAI. As of friday the 24th of December this will be entrance F. People traveling by car can follow the signs for entrance.
Free entry remains possible for getting the first or second shot at the RAI. Testing is made possible, after making an appointment, at the pavilion in front of our complex opposite the ROC of Amsterdam. This will also remain possible at locations: Plein 40-45 and Anton de Komplein.
All locations are open during the holidays. However, there are adjusted opening hours. Check your appointment and/or the website of the Municipal Health Services (GGD) in Amsterdam.
