Austria has ordered a total of 57 million doses of coronavirus vaccine since the start of the pandemic through early December 2021. During this period, 23.9 million doses were delivered by Pfizer/Biontech, Moderna, AstraZeneca, and Johnson & Johnson, and the four companies invoiced the Republic for 246 million euros by the end of October last year, according to an answer to a question by Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein (Greens).

“As of 05.01.2022, a total of 283,140 doses (vector vaccines), which were in the power of disposal of the federal government, have expired,” the health minister said in this regard.

For Johnson & Johnson, Mueckstein lists only 50 expired units. Of the very first vaccine, the one from the company AstraZeneca, which was soon much talked about because of vaccination side effects and was no longer vaccinated in Austria from the early summer of 2021, the most “leftover”: with an expiration date of August 31, 2021, there were only 20 expired units, with the expiration date of December 31 of last year, however, 280,460 expired doses are listed.

Figures in detail
The order numbers are in detail: the following orders were placed by December 9, 2021: Pfizer/Biontech 33.3 million doses, Moderna eight million doses, AstraZeneca 5.9 million doses, Johnson & Johnson 4.5 million doses, Novavax 1.1 million doses, Valneva 1.2 million doses, and Sanofi three million doses. Delivered quantities to date include these: Pfizer/Biontech 14.8 million doses, Moderna 2.9 million doses, AstraZeneca 4.9 million doses, and Johnson & Johnson 1.3 million doses, with about 990,000 doses going directly to J&J as a donation to the Covax vaccine distribution initiative and never reaching Austria.

Further orders can only be forecast in a “very volatile” manner due to the emergence of new virus variants with uncertain consequences, the response continues. Upward and downward adjustments are conceivable.

Current plans call for about 9.8 million doses in the first quarter of 2022, 11.3 million doses in the second quarter, 6.58 million units in the third quarter, and 5.8 million in the fourth quarter. In total and according to the current status, this makes 33.55 million vaccine doses against Covid-19 for this year.
