The Eindhoven region has a relatively high vaccination rate. Yet this is certainly not the case for a number of problem neighbourhoods in the city, such as Oud Woensel. “You don’t know what they are injecting. I don’t trust it”.
Eighty-four per cent of the adults in the Eindhoven region have now been vaccinated. That is more than the national average. Yet it is not enough, according to the regional GGD.
The health service especially tries to convince people in problem neighbourhoods to get a shot. Recently, for example, a GGD location was opened on Kruisstraat in Oud Woensel, where residents can get information and a shot. The GGD polled the opinion of the neighbourhood:
“I heard many people died from it, I think it is dangerous for me”, “they think like this they will eradicate the corona virus, I think it is a reaction of the world because there are too many people”, “I think it is safe for me or the whole world, and like this we can move freely”, and “I like to stay healthy and wish that all people would get vaccinated”, were the heard comments.
In Doornakkers and Oud Gestel, among other districts, vaccination coverage is also lagging behind.
