Sunday, 14 March 2021
Flemish Public Health Minister Wouter Beke said that every person living in Flanders aged over 18 years old should receive a dose of a coronavirus vaccine by 11 July this year, providing everything goes to plan.
He emphasised that if the deliveries of the vaccines run smoothly, every adult in Flanders will receive at least one shot by this date, he said during the ‘De zevende dag’ program on Sunday.
“There is some perspective for when people in Flanders will receive their vaccine, but once again, this is under one important condition and that is the delivery schedule of these vaccines. If they are as promised, then we will be able to give all over -18s at least one dose,” Beke said.
“This is an important day but also an important ambition and we have organised ourselves and our vaccination centres to adhere to this goal,” Beke added.
