Expo Houten is the first Dutch event location to accommodate, facilitate and support the GGD as a vaccination location. After weeks of preparation, the first vaccination was given to a healthcare worker today, Friday, January 8, 2021. Expo Houten is the first location chosen for the entire region by the GGD Regio Utrecht. The choice fell on Expo Houten because we comply with all safety measures required by the GGD and the government. The location is safe and well equipped and adapted to the current measures. The location is centrally located and easily accessible for everyone.
In addition, we have been working with the GGD since the start of the corona crisis when we facilitated the first drive-thru test street in the Netherlands. In recent months we have built up a close and trusted cooperation with the GGD. For example, the courses 'source and contact research' and 'vaccination' also take place at this location. We are pleased that the GGD has once again chosen Expo Houten and that we can now again contribute to the further fight against the corona virus. Only together can we get corona under control!
The other halls and meeting rooms will remain available for (already planned) fairs, conferences and meetings.
