Today, Friday, the first 20,000 vaccination appointments for 31- to 39-year-olds will be released. This age category was the last one missing in Vienna. But it’s only a “special promotion,” according to the city. The vaccinations start with Monday, first begins the parent-child vaccination.

The rush will be on with 20,000 vaccination appointments to be given to 31- to 39-year-olds. In total, there are nearly 309,000 Viennese in this age category. Among 30- to 39-year-olds, 20 percent have been fully immunized so far and 45 percent have received a partial vaccination, “whether through the company vaccination program or because they belong to a high-risk group,” a spokesman for City Health Councillor Peter Hacker (SPÖ) said when asked.

Vaccines from Biontech/Pfizer and Moderna are vaccinated. In the age group are many parents who could not register at the parent-child vaccination because their child is still younger than twelve years. Here, vaccination has not yet been approved.

No general opening of the age group
The vaccinations of the age group from 31 to 39 years will take place for a week starting Monday, the spokesman said. “There is not yet another schedule for this age group”. He added that this is a special promotion and not a general opening. “Prioritization also remains in place,” the spokesman said.

Note: The Ministry of Health does not currently provide separate categories for adolescents between 12 and 24 years of age in its data set, which is why all vaccinations in the younger groups must be shown in the category “Under 25”.

Big rush for parent-child immunizations
The rush for parent-child vaccinations for parents and children between the ages of 12 and 17 was so great that within two hours on Tuesday all 10,000 vaccination appointments were taken, and on the same day 30,000 additional vaccination appointments were activated. In this case, the vaccination will start on Friday with Biontech/Pfizer – another vaccine is not yet approved for children and adolescents.
