Progress in vaccination continues to be slow – especially among those who have not yet been vaccinated. According to the federal government’s vaccination dashboard, 25,066 stitches were administered on Monday, but only 3,640 of them were first-time stitches.

By comparison, the previous peak dates to June 2, with more than 143,000 Corona vaccinations administered nationwide. In total, 5,302,441 people have received at least one partial vaccination, according to E-vaccine passport data (as of Monday). That’s 59.4 percent of the population. 4,644,762, or 52 percent of the population, have received both vaccine doses. With the exception of the active ingredient from the manufacturer Johnson & Johnson, two vaccinations are necessary for full protection.

There is a need to catch up, especially among the younger population groups, where the proportion of vaccinated people is in some cases significantly below the Austrian average. Of the 25- to 34-year-olds, 56 percent are vaccinated first and 44.9 percent second. Of the 12- to 14-year-olds in Austria, 43.7 percent have been partially vaccinated and 29.2 percent fully vaccinated. No vaccine is licensed for under-twelve-year-olds.

The highest vaccination coverage rate is in Burgenland with 67.2 percent. In Lower Austria, 62.3 percent of the population is vaccinated, and in Styria 59.6 percent. After Tyrol (58.9), Vorarlberg (57.8), Vienna (57.4), Carinthia (56) and Salzburg (55.7), Upper Austria brings up the rear with a vaccination coverage rate of 55.2 percent.
