‘Dancing with Janssen’ is no longer an option, but residents of Haarlem and the surrounding area can ‘sjansen with Janssen’ on Friday evening. The GGD then combines vaccinating people who want Janssen’s corona vaccine with a dating event. Single participants have a short blind date with each other during the waiting period of fifteen minutes after the injection. For the occasion, the vaccination location in the Kennemer Sportcenter will be “transformed into a romantic place”.
“The corona period has been extra tough for many people without a partner,” the GGD reports. During the event, people can meet “at an accessible and corona-safe distance”.
With the slogan ‘dancing with Janssen’, Health Minister Hugo de Jonge suggested that people could go out immediately after a shot of this vaccine. While the vaccine needs time to work properly. When the nightlife quickly became a major source of infections, the cabinet decided that people must wait two weeks before they receive a vaccination certificate that gives access to, for example, events where people do not keep their distance from each other. These will also not take place in the coming period due to the explosive increase in the number of infections.
During the event in Haarlem, people must simply adhere to the corona measures. Even if the spark does fly, people are only supposed to schedule a follow-up date two weeks later. If there is a follow-up date, the couple will receive “a present” from the GGD Kennemerland.
