Concretely, this means that 1,251,185 people said to be at risk have already received their first injection. “In Flanders, this concerns nearly 90% of patients at risk, in Wallonia almost 80% and in Brussels a little less than 70%”, detailed Professor Dirk Ramaekers. “These numbers continue to rise everywhere.”

In the meantime, 7,879,865 doses of the various authorized vaccines have already been delivered to Belgium, and 53.9% of the adult population has already received a first dose. 26.4% are already fully protected. “Because of the variants, among other things, it is difficult to put an exact figure on the number of people who need to be vaccinated to obtain herd immunity,” the professor continued, “but it is clear that we must continue to strive to reach as many people as possible. ” If all goes well, our country can expect 4,413,950 additional doses of vaccine by the end of July. “Pfizer will deliver at least 2,321,280 doses by June 28, and 457,470 more in July,” said Professor Ramaekers. “We can also expect 736,800 Moderna vaccines by the end of July and 862,400 from AstraZeneca. There are still a lot of uncertainties about Johnson & Johnson. They will deliver 36,000 doses by June 7, but nothing has been done. press release about future deliveries. ” “In the best case, Europe can expect 35 million J&J vaccines in the coming weeks, including 900,000 for Belgium”, according to the head of the Taskforce. “At worst, Europe will only receive 18 million, of which 450,000 will go to Belgium. Obviously, that would slow down our vaccination campaign.”
