BELGIUM AUTUMN VACCINATION CAMPAIGN
The Belgian COVID-19 Autumn vaccination campaign started on 12 September 2022. Certain sectors and immunodeficient people are being vaccinated first and then an age-based logic will be applied until the age of 18. This campaign is including the new (EMA approved) bivalent mRNA vaccines against Omicron!
Those with a National Number (NISS or BIS) check your post boxes for an invite.
NOTE: A NISS will only have been issued if you have received a Protocol ID card. Those with a Protocol ID but have not yet requested their NISS can do so through the GSO-EJSU-Belgium-CommunityHub@mod.gov.uk for the HNLO to assist, you will need to provide the HNLO with your address and DOB (for each eligible family member). Those without a NISS or BIS can visit the SOIGNIES Centre (details on the AUM) after 19 Sep.
If you undertake a vaccination through the HN you can provide the details to the Medical Centre (proof batch number, Expiry date, brand of vaccine will all be required) by:
· Sending the details via email to UKStratCom-DMS-DPHC-MON-Grp@mod.gov.uk.
· Drop the information off at the Medical Centre reception.
· Pass the information via eConsult.
Assuming the vaccination is one of the UK delivered JCVI approved COVID-19 vaccine then they will be able to add it to the system and onto NHS app/ Pinnacle. Further information on this process should be directed to the Medical Centre.
Those who have a NISS/BIS, and have activated their Digital Key will be able to view their vaccination status using the COVIDSafe.be APP. Further information on COVID testing and vaccinations can be found at SHAPE & BRUSSELS – European Joint Support Unit (ejsu.net).
