Flanders is the European champ when it comes to vaccination levels. 91.4% of adults are fully vaccinated. 92.2% had at least one shot.
Brussels has been lagging behind with 69.5% of adults with at least one jab and only 67.1% of adults fully vaccinated.
Unlike in Flanders today in Brussels you need to produce your Covid Safe Ticket in hospitality, at the gym and many other locations if you want to get in. “The introduction of the CST seems to be having a slight impact” says Neven. “Requiring the CST to get in at many places seems to have convinced more and more Brusselers to get the jab”.
“Last week the number of people getting their first jab rose a full 26%. That’s 11,000 doses in all a week. The vaccination administering rate is back to August levels”.
“Admittedly, this isn’t the big jump in vaccinations we witnessed in France when the CST was introduced there, but we are immunising 1% of Brusselers every week. If we can continue like this – it is a bit slow – we are making progress and I am happy with the rise.”
