Austria is making good progress with vaccinations. 3,139,772 people have received at least one vaccination so far, and 1,162,623 already have full vaccine protection. However, this vaccination protection is expected to last only about six to nine months – after which people will need a booster.

Experts recommend a booster will be needed in autumn to maintain Corona protection. “The provinces have already started the preliminary work on logistics,” Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said Thursday.

“Virus will not disappear”
According to vaccination expert Herwig Kollaritsch, there is no exact data yet, but one assumes – depending on the preparation – a protection period of six to nine months. This means that boosters must be started in the fall. “It doesn’t have to be to the day, but it is necessary to maintain vaccine protection.” The virus will not go away, he said.

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla believes a third dose within a year of the second vaccination is the most likely option. He told U.S. broadcaster CNBC that the third dose within six to 12 months, followed by annual boosters, is “a very likely scenario.”
