Almost a thousand people have already been vaccinated against the coronavirus during the city of Vienna’s new vaccination campaign in shopping malls. The vaccination is carried out with the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which only requires one dose.

Low-threshold, without appointment and without registration – that’s how vaccination works while shopping, for example in Lugner City. This is specifically to address a younger target group, which has so far been underrepresented in CoV vaccination. “It’s better to be vaccinated than not,” said a young woman in the “Wien heute” interview. “I decided spontaneously,” a man explained. “I was shopping here in the morning today and thought to myself, here it is now, the vaccination campaign. Straightforward, easy, quick.”

The vaccination campaigns take place in three shopping centers
Since Wednesday, vaccinations have been offered at Lugner City in Rudolfsheim-Fünfhaus, and on Friday and Saturday, there was also an offer to vaccinate at the Auhof Center (Penzing) and the Riverside shopping center (Liesing). So far, around 800 people have already taken advantage of this, the exact figures for Saturday are still missing – however, the city assumes that a total of over 1,000 people were vaccinated. The action still runs the whole of August, is vaccinated Johnson & Johnson. People under the age of 18 receive the vaccine from Biontech and Pfizer.

The owner of the house, Richard Lugner, was also pleased with the campaign. He gave away T-shirts to those who had been vaccinated and was visibly proud of the results at his location, Lugner City: “228 people were vaccinated here yesterday, 199 the day before yesterday, and on the first day there were 178. And Rathausplatz, which is one of the best, only has 150 people. So we’re ahead of the game,” Lugner said, comparing himself to the city’s other spontaneous vaccination campaigns.

The vaccination event was also well received at the Riverside already on Saturday morning. “My girlfriend is pregnant, and before I then have to do a PCR test at every hospital visit, I thought to myself: I’ll do it for her sake and get vaccinated,” one young man told me. Older visitors to the shopping centers who had already been vaccinated for a long time praised the campaign: “Excellent and also necessary. People need to be convinced. Absolutely,” said an elderly lady.
