As of August 26, 2021, 57.9 percent of Austrians were fully vaccinated in Austria. However, the vaccination campaign is progressing sluggishly.
Although experts warn that the fourth wave is getting out of hand, only 20,092 Corona vaccinations had been given as of Thursday. In early June, more than 143,000 people were vaccinated on the peak day. In total, 5,473,749 people have already received at least a partial vaccination, according to E-vaccine passport data: That’s 61.3 percent of the population. Meanwhile, exactly 5,169,410, or 57.9 percent of Austrians, are fully immunized.

Vaccination rates in the provinces
Full immunization, which experts say protects against a severe course of the disease, has been received by 66.1 percent of the population in Burgenland, followed by Lower Austria (60.9 percent), Styria (58.7 percent), Vorarlberg (57.5 percent), Tyrol (56.5 percent), Vienna (55.9 percent), Salzburg (54.5) and Carinthia (54.1 percent). Upper Austria continues to bring up the rear with 53.4 percent of full-immunization rates.

Vienna’s religious hospitals call for Corona vaccination
In view of the slow progress in vaccination, Vienna’s religious hospitals meanwhile also called on the population to be immunized against the virus. “Those who get vaccinated not only protect themselves and others. He also contributes to the fact that it does not come by a high number of people with Covid-19 in the normal and intensive care units for capacity reasons again to the postponement of operations,” it said in a statement of the hospitals on Friday. The seven Viennese hospitals had also already introduced a vaccination requirement for employees in all areas, as demanded by the Vienna Medical Association, among others.
