Most of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccines ‘won’t be used’

After one of his interviews for AD, the head of the vaccination department at RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment of the Netherlands), Jaap van Delden was chastised for claiming that millions of doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine will be withdrawn from shipment to the Netherlands.

He argues that the pointed vaccines, which are normally only provided to people between the ages of 60 and 64, would be unnecessary.

The national family doctors’ association, LHV, responded to Delden’s remarks by highlighting the necessity of this vaccine, even though AstraZeneca’s implementation was a total mess: it was first prohibited, then authorized, and so on. In addition, the Netherlands placed an order for 11 doses of the vaccine.

The LHV, on the other hand, wanted the government to provide clear details about the vaccination program, which focuses on people who live in more remote areas where media attention is minimal. Doctors in Rotterdam also say that only 30-40% of citizens in these areas are vaccinated, making them more discriminatory against others.

According to I&O report, 4 out of 10 people over 60 who have not been vaccinated claim they do not want the AstraZeneca vaccine.
