Following the inter-ministerial health meeting on Saturday, it has been decided to offer all people aged 65 and older in Belgium a third vaccine dose against the coronavirus.

The invitations for the third injection will be sent out in the coming weeks, firstly to people aged 85 and older, according to Flanders health Minister Wouter Beke. “For the other age groups, we will examine the conditions and process.”

According to the latest figures from Sciensano, Belgium’s national health institute, between 81 and 92% of people over the age of 85 in Belgium are fully vaccinated.

For the age group 75 to 84, the figures vary between 81 and 96% and in the 65-74 age group, the figure is between 80 and 96%.
