COVID-vaccinations morbidly obese patients (BMI>40)

The first patients in general practices in Amsterdam are expected to be vaccinated in February 
or March. Due to the limited availability of vaccines, this concerns a small group of people. The selection is determined by the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport.

Patients born in 1957 and 1956 are automatically called up.

In addition to this group, people between the ages of 18 and 60 who are morbidly obese 
(BMI above 40) are also eligible for a vaccine.

Do you have or think you are morbidly obese? Then contact the practice.
