In Lower Austria, coronavirus vaccination appointments were unlocked for all over-60s on Wednesday. By 1 p.m., more than 41,000 appointments had been booked.
“This means we have reached another milestone today: more than half a million Lower Austrians have already been vaccinated or have booked their personal vaccination appointment,” said LHStv. Stephan Pernkopf (ÖVP) and Landesrätin Ulrike Königsberger-Ludwig (SPÖ).
“Our vaccination campaign is gaining momentum,” Pernkopf and Königsberger-Ludwig said, according to the provincial press service: “For the next few weeks until June, we expect another half a million vaccine doses.” Last weekend, the 500,000th injection was already administered; here, first and second doses are added together.
More than 90,000 people were able to make reservations on Wednesday. According to Notruf NÖ, there are more appointments available in the current registration round than there are people entitled to them. With activation at 10.00 o’clock were scarcely 38,000 persons in the queue, it was said. At the strongest time, the online platform is handling 2,000 bookings per minute. “If many book at the same time, there is the queue system,” Spielbichler said. However, appointments can also be reserved later, in the coming days.
