Get a coronavirus jab without an appointment at the Heizel Vaccination Centre this weekend

Residents of the Brussels-Capital Region that have not yet been vaccinated against coronavirus can get a jab without having made an appointment. On both Saturday and Sunday, the capital’s largest vaccination centre at the Heizel is offering appointment-free coronavirus vaccinations between 9 am and 3 pm. 

Anyone that is resident in Brussels and over the age of 16 can turn up and get a jab. However, in order to prevent long queues like those seen in Ghent on Friday, the regional authority that is responsible for the vaccination campaign in the capital does advise those wishing to get a jab to make an appointment via de website. 

Those aged 16 and 17 will be given a first dose of the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine and will be able to return for their second dose in four weeks’ time.

 People over the age of 18 will be able to choose between the Pfizer vaccine and the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Those opting for Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be required to sign an official consent form.
