Hill back The proportion of two-year-olds fully vaccinated has fallen slightly this year. In the municipality of Utrechtse Heuvelrug, 90.2% of two-year-olds were fully vaccinated this year, compared to 91% in 2020. There was an increase nationwide. Nationwide, 91.3 percent of children born in 2018 received all vaccinations from the National Immunization Program. In 2020, that was 90.8 percent, according to figures published by RIVM Posted Thursday.

The national immunization program includes injections against diseases such as whooping cough, measles and meningococcus.

About four out of every hundred children have not been vaccinated against any disease from the national immunization programme. In the municipality of Utrechtse Heuvelrug, 6.4 percent of two-year-olds had not received any vaccinations, and in 2020 this figure was still 4.4 percent.

According to RIVM, the coronavirus measures appear to have had little effect on the number of children vaccinated. Read the letter from RIVM on national trends here.
