After the boat, now comes the bus: In Vienna, two vaccination buses are on the road from Wednesday, in which one can be vaccinated against the coronavirus without registration and appointment. In the Austria Center and eight vaccination boxes are also vaccination without registration.

The two buses of Wiener Linien will make stops at alternating, heavily frequented locations, it was said by Health City Councilor Peter Hacker (SPÖ). Over 18-year-olds can get the vaccine from Johnson & Johnson there, for people between twelve and 18 years there is Biontech/Pfizer. All that is needed is an ID and, if available, an e-card.

“In addition to highly frequented places, youth centers will also be targeted in order to increase the level of immunization against Covid-19, especially among those groups that still have a lower vaccination rate,” Hacker said via release.

16 vaccinations per hour and bus
The vaccination buses will be on the road every day of the week, offering vaccinations Monday through Thursday between 10 a.m. and 7 p.m., and Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sixteen people can be vaccinated per hour per bus. Bus locations are available online.

Routes are already set for the first few days through Sunday, inclusive. On day one, Wednesday, the buses will leave from Hütteldorf station – bus station at the stop of lines 43B and 47B in Penzing to Reumannplatz at the level of Favoritenstraße 134 – 136 in Favoriten. The vaccination buses will be on the road throughout the summer until September.

Free choice of vaccines at the Austria Center
At the Austria Center, you can not only come for vaccination without registration until Sunday. You can also choose between all available vaccines – i.e. AstraZeneca, Biontech/Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna. The principle applies: just get there. As with the buses, ID is required and, if available, an e-card. On the homepage of the Austria Center you can also check the current occupancy rate – this is to avoid long waiting times – read more in Vienna launches campaign with all vaccines.

The vaccines from Biontech/Pfizer and Moderna can be used to vaccinate people aged twelve and older. AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson are also available to persons over 18 years of age. The interval between the second partial vaccination can be arranged flexibly according to preference. With the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, only one prick is necessary for full immunization. The vaccinations take place from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. each day.

Vaccination also without appointment in vaccination boxes
Those who don’t want to drive all the way to the Austria Center can instead go to one of the eight new vaccination boxes without an appointment or registration. They are distributed throughout the city. One, for example, is located next to the Ferris wheel in the Prater. Other locations include Neubau, Favoriten, Hietzing and Liesing. In all vaccination boxes, the single-use vaccine from Johnson & Johnson is vaccinated. Adolescents receive Biontech/Pfizer – read more in Eight new locations for vaccination without an appointment.
