Run on booster causes great crowds at website trash vaccine | Healthy

The high demand for booster vaccines is causing enormous pressure on the website. Via that website, people who want to be vaccinated can see whether a practice in their area has doses of vaccine available. Nearly three hundred locations have already been connected.

A group of doctors created the website at the start of the vaccination campaign to prevent leftover corona vaccines from being thrown away at the end of the day. The demand for so-called ‘trash bin vaccines’ has been increasing again for less than a week.

The GGD Amsterdam, among others, sees that the remaining vaccines are in great demand, according to Marlies Schijven, professor of surgery at the Amsterdam UMC and one of the initiators of the website.
