Invitation Dutch National Immunisation Program

The Netherlands has an extensive National Immunisation Programme to protect children against infectious diseases. The programme includes vaccination against 12 potentially fatal infectious diseases. The GGD carries out these vaccinations. The first injection is given when a child is 2 months old. The last injection takes place when your child is 13/14 years old. Parents do not have to pay for these vaccinations.

You have received an invitation for vaccination. On this webpage you will find all information in English. Make sure you have filled in the permission form and take it to your appointment.
