9.3 percent are fully immunized in Austria since Friday. 25 percent have received a first-time vaccination. A total of three million vaccinations have been administered.
According to Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, this is already the “ketchup effect.” In fact, something is finally happening with vaccination. And this means that even politicians are daring to be vaccinated. The first top politician – according to age – to be vaccinated was Alexander Van der Bellen (Biontech/Pfizer).
This was followed by Education Minister Heinz Faßmann (AstraZeneca). In May, Vice Chancellor Werner Kogler and Defense Minister Klaudia Tanner were to receive the vaccine. Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein, as a doctor, was already vaccinated with Pfizer in January. In the meantime, FPÖ leader Norbert Hofer and SPÖ leader Pamela Rendi-Wagner (both Pfizer) have also been immunized. Neos leader Beate Meinl-Reisinger will be vaccinated with Pfizer next week.
Younger politicians won’t have their turn until June
Waiting. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, Justice Minister Alma Zadic and Finance Minister Gernot Blümel, who are all under 40, will have to wait the longest – until June. Kurz has announced that he will be vaccinated with AstraZeneca.
