Brussels abandons federal platform for vaccine appointments

The Joint Community Commission (Cocom) has decided to abandon Doclr for the management of vaccination in the Brussels-Capital Region in favour of a new platform, reports De Tijd on Tuesday evening.

The aim is to resolve complaints and difficulties in making an appointment via this system. The information was confirmed to Belga by Inge Neven, head of Cocom’s hygiene inspection service.

The number of people invited to make a reservation to be vaccinated remains low in Brussels, according to figures released on Monday. The procedure via Doclr is said to be rather complicated, especially in Brussels where patients can choose the date, time and vaccination centre for themselves to be vaccinated.

A new platform should make it easier to make appointments, Inge Neven insisted.

The platform will only be changed when it comes to making appointments, according to Bruzz, as the federal database needs to stay up to date on who has or has not received their invitation letters.

According to De Tijd, a decision is expected to be made on Wednesday on which company will deliver a new online platform. No launch date has yet been set, however.
