Vaccinations

The OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance is a medical insurance for foreign young people who come to the Netherlands as a student, intern or au pair.

You will receive reimbursement for the costs of rabies and tetanus vaccinations if:

  • you have been bitten, scratched or licked by an animal that may be infected with rabies
  • you risk tetanus infection following a wound and preventative vaccinations do not offer sufficient protection

With the OOM Studying in the Netherlands Insurance you can opt for no excess or an excess of €150. If you incur costs which are covered by the insurance and you have opted for an excess of €150, you then pay for the first part of the costs yourself.

You are bitten by a dog that may have rabies. You receive a rabies vaccination. The costs are €25. If you have no excess, you will receive reimbursement for the total costs.

You can claim your medical expenses quickly and easily via My OOM.
