The Dutch coin new work for vaccine regret


Gateway PunditPrikspijt, a new word for regretting getting a vaccination, has been voted Dutch word of the year after a social media campaign, reports dictionary-maker Van Dale. The word had 82.2% of almost 49,000 votes cast, followed by woonprotest (protests about the Dutch housing crisis) and wappiegeluid (a derogatory term applied to coronavirus conspiracy theorists). Van Dale defines prikspijt as ‘a feeling of regret someone has about having been vaccinated against any infectious disease,’

It's an interesting case where signs of real public sentiment leaked through the repressive filters.
