Katharina Reich, chief medical officer at the Ministry of Health, and Maria Paulke-Korinek, head of the vaccination department, today concretized the further vaccination schedule. According to the details, 470,000 and 124,000 doses of Covid-19 mRNA vaccines will be delivered to Biontech and Pfizer and Moderna, respectively, in March. In addition, there will be 350,000 AstraZeneca doses. All of these are to be vaccinated as soon as possible.

The first shipment of the vector vaccine from manufacturer Johnson & Johnson is expected in the second quarter, if approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). The decision on this will be made on Thursday.

Austria has ordered a total of 2.5 million Johnson & Johnson doses as part of the EU procurement. The vaccine has the advantage that it takes full effect after just one dose is administered. In principle, the current plan is to vaccinate the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to people over the age of 18.

One million vaccinations by the end of the week
Health Minister Rudolf Anschober (Greens) was unable to attend the press conference due to illness – he had not contracted the coronavirus, his press spokeswoman assured.

Studies on the tolerability of vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 in over-twelve-year-olds are underway, said the business unit manager of AGES Medical Market Surveillance, Christa Wirthumer-Hoche. By the end of the week, she said, more than one million vaccinations will have been administered throughout Austria.
