De Jonge: Residents vaccinated elsewhere can be included
Dutch Health Minister Hugo de Jonge also said that Netherlands residents who were vaccinated abroad will be able to have records of their shot entered into the national CIMS database, a crucial piece for Dutch participation in the EU Covid Certificate program. The technical details have not been fully worked out.
“This complex issue involves several questions, such as the recognition and recognition of foreign COVID-19 vaccination certificates, which are not based on the European Digital COVID-19 Certificate,” he wrote in a letter to Parliament.
This will only be the case for people who have received an EMA-approved vaccine. They also must live in the Netherlands or be permitted to stay for a long duration and have a BSN number.
People who move to the Netherlands will likely be able to have their vaccination records entered into CIMS as well, De Jonge wrote
