The first vaccinations against the coronavirus could possibly take place in Austria as early as December 24. This is the assumption of the federal government after the European Medicines Agency (EMA) brought forward its opinion on the approval of the Corona vaccine from the companies Biontech and Pfizer to December 21.

Pfizer gave assurances in a video conference with Chancellor Sebastian Kurz (ÖVP) that it would start delivering the first doses of the vaccine immediately after approval, the chancellor’s office said. This would mean that, optimally, the first shipment could arrive in Austria and all other EU countries as early as Dec. 24.

“As the federal government, we have made the necessary arrangements so that we could start vaccination immediately on the same day after the delivery arrives,” Kurz said, “We will not wait a day but will quickly start distributing the vaccine as soon as the delivery arrives in Austria.”

After delivery of the first vaccine doses in the amount of just under 10,000 doses per EU member state, the delivery of additional doses will take place in several steps in the last days of December and at the beginning of the year. 900,000 vaccine doses from Biontech/Pfizer are to be delivered to Austria in the course of the first quarter of 2021. In addition, vaccine doses are also expected from other manufacturers.
