Last week, more than 650,000 people in Austria were vaccinated against coronavirus – more than ever before. However, first-time vaccinations accounted for only a good 100,000 of these; the majority were booster vaccinations.
In Austria, more people were vaccinated against Covid-19 last week than ever before. However, the record figure is mainly due to booster vaccinations. First-time vaccinations, on the other hand, declined again after a sharp increase since mid-October. A total of 653,750 people were vaccinated last week, including 107,465 first-time shots. By comparison, the previous record from the second week of June was 630,570, of which 293,755 were first-time vaccinations. However, these are preliminary numbers: There are significant reporting delays in the immunization registry.

Booster vaccinations going well
Austria’s status as “European vaccination champion,” as claimed by Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein, is largely due to booster vaccinations administered early in this country. Overall, vaccination coverage in Austria, at around 66 percent, remains below the EU average (66.6 percent). Ahead of Austria are top performers such as Portugal (88 percent) and Spain (80), as well as Germany (67), Italy (73), the Netherlands (73), Belgium (74) and the Scandinavian countries. Only in Eastern Europe is vaccination coverage consistently lower.

A total of 1.2 million people in Austria have received a third vaccination dose so far. Last week alone, according to preliminary figures, there were 463,655. A further 82,630 vaccinations were second doses and 107,465 were first doses. This brings the number of first-time vaccinations back down from 133,083 the week before.

Nearly 50,000 Corona vaccinations on Sunday alone
On Sunday, 49,595 people got vaccinated, according to preliminary numbers. However, there are currently significant delays in enrollment in the electronic vaccination record. Thus, the data extract from the vaccination register for Vienna published on Monday showed 14,114 vaccinations – the highest value of all provinces. However, according to the Vienna provincial government, significantly more vaccinations were actually carried out on Sunday, namely 22,240.

This means that the vaccination figures reported for the past few days are likely to rise significantly. Currently, the vaccination register for Sunday shows the second highest value in Lower Austria (10,912), followed by Carinthia (5,711), Upper Austria (5,656) and Tyrol (4,264). Accordingly, 4,257 were registered in Burgenland, 2,310 in Styria, 1,725 in Salzburg and 91 in Vorarlberg.

Overall, two out of three people in Austria are fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Vaccination coverage is highest in Burgenland (nearly 73 percent), ahead of Lower Austria (69), Styria (66), Vienna and Tyrol (65 percent each). In Vorarlberg, almost 64 percent have a valid vaccination certificate, in Carinthia 63, in Salzburg 62 and in Upper Austria 61.
