The vaccine campaign in Luxembourg has not been without hitches since it was rolled out at the end of December.

93 people erroneously received an invitation for a vaccine jab recently, despite not belonging to the healthcare staff priority group. The first phase of vaccinations has therefore triggered questions and confusion surrounding the rollout of jabs.

The Ministry of Health said the mistake was due to a technical error which caused the automatic invitation programme to select the incorrect recipients. The invitations have had their reservation codes deactivated, and the 93 recipients have been informed that they must wait before they can receive the vaccine.

As of Wednesday, 3,720 health- and care sector employees had taken advantage of the vaccination programme.
