Anyone in Brussels with medical training is being called upon to help with vaccinating in the city once centres open.

The Joint Community Commission (Cocom) – responsible for vaccination in Brussels – is calling on doctors, nurses, midwives, whether active or retired, as well as nursing students in their third and fourth years or in a master’s degree in medicine, to help in the ten or so vaccination centres that will soon open in the Brussels Region.

Volunteers must be able to prove their skills. Students – another potential resource – will only be called upon when the number of qualified professionals is not sufficient.
