“We plan to launch the third wave of vaccinations by March or April,” said Gudrun Briat, spokesperson for the taskforce on Thursday. The final decision on this recall, however, rests with the Consultation Committee.
What is certain, however, is that everyone will have the opportunity to receive a third dose, although the practical implementation of this measure remains to be determined.
The Interministerial Conference (CIM) will debate this point on November 27. In preparation for the meeting, the Vaccination Taskforce will meet for the first time this Thursday evening to give a first impetus to a deployment plan.[display-posts orderby="rand"]
“We are working on the implementation in collaboration with the regions, which are in charge of the operational part of the vaccination campaign. We are in permanent dialogue with them, ”assured Gudrun Briat. There is no concrete timetable at the moment but, according to the spokesperson, the booster will be administered from mid-December to the first people under 65 who are not at risk patients.
“Unlike previous vaccination campaigns, we now have enough stock for everyone,” Ms. Briat continued. By March or April of next year, the task force hopes that everyone will have received their third dose. This could possibly coincide with the vaccination of children aged 5 to 11 if Belgium chooses this option.
