Corona vaccinatie nieuws

For information about vaccination you can call the RIVM on the national information number 0800-1351.
More information about vaccination against SarsCoV2 can be found at coronavaccinatie.nl, coronavaccinatie.nl/AstraZeneca, RIVM Q&A about the corona vaccin and also this film, this film and this film.

From the last week of January, the GGD started vaccinating people aged 65 and older in special vaccination centers. They started with the mobile over-90s, inviting from old to young every 5 years. Vaccination is done with the BioNTech / Pfizer (Comirnaty) vaccine.

From 5 May, people with a medical indication born in 1961 up to and including 2003 (18 to 59 years) will be invited by the GGD in phases. The selection of who receives an invitation is provided by your own doctor and is the same as the selection of people who are eligible for the flu shot.

Vaccination by the GP:
On Friday April 16 we vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine. This took place in the NoLimit community center.
The following groups have been invited:

  1. people born in the years 1956 to 1960 (approximately 60 to 64 years old)
  2. people with Down syndrome between 60 and 74 years
  3. overweight people with a BMI over 40 from 60 to 74 years

The vaccination takes place together with the other general practices in Amsterdam Southeast and Diemen South and took place over several days. Each group will be vaccinated twice.
The 2nd vaccination will take place on Friday, July 9.

The non-mobile elderly who could not come to the GGD for a vaccination are also vaccinated by the general practitioner with the Astra Zeneca vaccine.

Information about AstraZeneca and vaccination at thuisarts.nl: Ik wil meer weten over prikken tegen corona en Ik krijg een prik tegen corona

*As a precautionary measure, it has been decided not to vaccinate with AstraZeneca in people under 60 years of age as a result of an extremely rare side effect of thrombosis in combination with low platelets.

Start training General Practitioners

We started training general practitioners from 1 March. This means that a general practitioner trainee will be working at Huisartsen Ganzenhoef for a whole year. Sander Huttenhuis started with us on 1 March (see also team).
A general practitioner trainee is a graduated doctor who often has work experience as a doctor in a hospital. Dr. van der Pas and Dr. Bom are the supervisors this year.
You can therefore also be seen by the general practitioner trainee. He does independent consultation hours, but is closely supervised by us as a supervisor. We also discuss the consultations afterwards.
During a consultation you may be asked whether the conversation may be recorded. The video recordings are only used for training purposes and are always deleted after use. Permission will always be requested before a recording is started and you always have the right to refuse.

Departure Guylene

I regret to inform you that Guylene our nurse practitioner at Huisartsen Ganzenhoef has left us. She has decided to start education for nurse. Guylene was one of our earliest employees. We wish her every success in her further career. The patients who came to her are taken over by our 2 other nurse practitioners Samira and Deborah.

Project Powerful Basic Care

Since 2019, Huisartsen Ganzenhoef has started a 2-year project Powerful Basic Care. It is a test in collaboration with Zilveren Kruis and the AOF (social poor district support fund). The practice receives compensation for more time for the patient (15 minutes instead of 10 minutes) and to be able to deploy more than average staff. Close collaboration with organizations in the neighborhood that offer social support to residents in the neighborhood.

Powerful basic care is an innovative integrated approach aimed at residents with high health risks and problems in multiple areas of life.

It is a way of looking, learning and doing by all professionals in the field of care, social welfare and prevention in the neighborhood. They share knowledge and information and go in search of an integral solution to the problem with the patient.

The result? Professionals can do their job better, customers reap the benefits of tailor-made care and services and the costs of care are significantly reduced!
