Covid-19 vaccination

The vaccination is the most important step in the fight against the coronavirus disease. It minimises the risk of becoming infected with Covid-19 and the potential of being severely affected by the disease.

All citizens of Upper Austria aged 5* and up can book an appointment for a Covid-19 vaccination on the appointment booking platform.

Around 600 general practitioners in Upper Austria are naturally continuing to provide vaccinations as well. Pregnant women, high-risk patients and older people in particular are advised to contact their GP for a vaccination as a matter of urgency. These doctors are most familiar with their patients’ health. Around 100 companies in Upper Austria are offering vaccinations as well.

*According to the approval granted by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), Austria’s National Vaccine Committee (NIG) is also recommending that the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine be used for the 5 to 11 age group. The vaccine is therefore also available to persons aged 5 and up in Upper Austria.
