As of April 11, you should do a self test if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. Testing at GGD locations is only open to specific groups (health workers and people who need proof of recovery to travel). Take a look at testing for coronivirus for more information.

PCR test for travel

If you are travelling abroad, you most likely need a PCR test taken. On the travel page, you can find locations in the Leiden region where you can get such a test.


There are several test and vaccination locations in the Leiden region. Everyone who is 12 or older and a resident in the Netherlands has been invited to get vaccinated.

Still need a vaccine? Find a walk-in vaccination centre. There is no appointment needed.

Other important information about vaccinations in the Netherlands

Are you not listed in the BRP but  staying in the Netherlands for 1 month or longer? Then you can contact your own embassy in the Netherlands. The embassy will provide you with a telephone number with which you can register for a vaccination. Bring your passport to the appointment for the corona vaccination. 

The government has also made a number of communication tools in different languages (English, Polish, Arabic and more), which answers several questions you might have about a coronavirus vaccination.
