The good news: vaccination protection lasts – at least according to current knowledge – for six to nine months, with minor deviations. The bad news is that we will probably have to get a booster this year. The manufacturers have long been working on adapting their vaccines in the best possible way.

“We will have to settle the vaccine booster on a broader scale in autumn,” said vaccination expert Herwig Kollaritsch, “the logistics for this are in the making.” Soon there should be a recommendation from the National Immunization Panel, so we can tell people when they need to go for booster vaccination.”

The booster doesn’t have to be given on a day-to-day basis; after all, vaccine protection doesn’t disappear overnight. But it will be necessary.

According to Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein, approval by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) of Biontech/Pfizer for 12- to 15-year-olds is imminent, so that this age group can also be vaccinated quickly in the near future.

Furthermore, thanks to another decree, vaccination appointments for all age groups are to be released soon, so that in the next few weeks everyone will be able to get vaccinated by family doctors who wants to: “Doctors can decide freely according to personal risk.”

Current vaccination status

Health Minister Mückstein comments, “Now vaccination is really taking off.” More than three million Austrians have had at least partial vaccination so far, and the vaccine shortage seems to be coming to an end: 400,000 to 500,000 doses would come in weekly, and 60,000 to 100,000 people would be stung every day.

Proof of vaccination now available at pharmacies
Those who would like to have their vaccination certificate in paper form can now also have it printed out from the Electronic Vaccination Certificate in Austria’s pharmacies. The service is available to those insured who are also entitled to free tests.
