In the next stage of Belgium’s vaccination campaign, people with an underlying condition between 18 and 65 years old will start receiving their jabs in April.

Belgium’s healthcare funds are currently establishing the list of patients at risk on the basis of drugs consumed and general practitioners will also be able to include their at-risk patients, while specialist doctors will be able to add people with rare diseases.

According to public health institute Sciensano, this could include up to 1.5 million people in Belgium.

Any citizen wishing to check if they are included on the list can do so from 8 April by going to the site www.myhealthviewer.be.

According to the latest available numbers, 13.7% of the adult population has received a jab with 5.6% now fully vaccinated.
