Health Minister Rudolf Anschober (Greens) expects first deliveries of Astrazeneca vaccine starting Feb. 7. At the Steering Board Meeting on EU vaccine procurement, the CEO of Astrazeneca announced that the vaccine is expected to be approved by the end of this week, according to a Health Ministry release.

Vaccine can then be delivered to Austria in three tranches in February: 63,354 on Feb. 7, 97,763 on Feb. 17 and 182,430 at the end of February. In total, then, “343,547 doses of vaccine from Astrazeneca will come to Austria in February,” it said.

How many Astrazeneca doses Austria will receive in total in the first quarter was initially unclear. On Friday, after all, it became known that the pharmaceutical company is already facing delivery problems.

1.1 million doses were planned for March. Last it was said that in March still about 170,000 doses for Austria would follow. If that is indeed the case, Austria would have received around 514,000 vaccine doses from Astrazeneca in quarter one. A total of two million doses were actually to be delivered in the first quarter. This was announced by Chancellor Sebastian Kurz in mid-January.
