Be part of it!

COVID-19 has really mucked things about in our lives. Restrictions that we had thought impossible became normal, and despite these very limiting measures, the pandemic did not simply go away; it claimed its victims with every new wave – all over the world. At the same time, the global health crisis has shown that humanity is capable of finding a solution for this huge challenge by way of intense cooperation.

And this solution is vaccinations. We already have a number of different, very efficient vaccines at our disposal. The protection thanks to the vaccination will make it possible to get this pandemic under control; to go back to leading a normal life. So absolutely do get vaccinated – in one of Vienna’s vaccination centres, at your company, or at your local physician’s practice.

Validity of vaccination certificates
  • The first vaccination regime with 2 doses (certificate 2/2 or 2/1) or the case of a recovery + 1 dose (certificate 1/1) is valid for 180 days. The vaccination certificate for the booster shot (certificate 3/ 3) or a recovery + 2 doses (certificate 3/3 or 3/1) will continue to be valid for 270 days.
    The validity of vaccination certificates for children and youths between 12 and 17 years of age is 210 days (7 months).
    For entering Austria, these vaccination certificates and other proofs of vaccination remain valid for 270 days.
  • The vaccination certificate for one dose of Johnson&Johnson is no longer valid

The AstraZeneca vaccine is currently no longer available in Austria. But you can switch to a different vaccine (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson&Johnson) at your appointment.

Why get vaccinated?

Because it is the beginning of the end of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The more people are vaccinated the better for all of us. A high vaccination rate contributes to your own protection and to the containment of the pandemic. Once all necessary doses have been administered, you will have reliable protection against COVID-19.

Your advantage

The Covid vaccination will protect you from a severe progression of the disease, from long-term effects, and it considerably reduces the risk of an infection. By getting vaccinated, you are contributing to the protection of vulnerable persons (also within your own circle of friends/relatives), and you are relieving the Austrian health care system.

General questions (14)

A high vaccination rate contributes to your own protection and to the containment of the pandemic. Once you have received all required doses of the vaccine, you have reliable protection against COVID-19. In exceptional cases, COVID-19 can still be contracted after the vaccination, but in such a case, the progression is usually much more harmless.

You can book your vaccination appointment here. If you book an appointment, a rapid process will be guaranteed. If you make a spontaneous decision to get vaccinated without an appointment, several vaccination sites throughout the city are at your disposal. Please note that only a limited number of vaccinations can be administered in the course the “Vaccination without appointment” campaign 

Persons as of 5 years of age will receive the Covid vaccination with the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine. The National Vaccination Board recommends that the Moderna (Spikevax) vaccine be only administered to persons of 30 years and older. Upon express request and in line with the approval, the Moderna vaccine can also be administered to persons under 30 years of age. The Johnson & Johnson vaccine will be administered to persons as of 18 years of age. The Novavax (Nuvaxovid) vaccine will be administered to persons as of 18 years of age. 

Please note that children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a legal guardian. The final decision on whether a child aged 5 to 12 will receive the Covid vaccination is with the attending physician.

For vaccination certificates to be accepted within the 2G rule in Austria, the COVID-19 vaccines must be approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA). If, however, you have received your vaccination with a vaccine that is not EMA-approved (i.e. Sputnik V), the National Vaccination Board recommends that you do a test for neutralising antibodies and then get one dose of one of the EMA-approved mRNA vaccines (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna). There should be at least one month between the previous vaccination regime and your new dose. On a European level, neutralising antibodies are not part of the certificates in the Green Pass. For this reason, you will receive a vaccination certificate for one dose, with the information “Dose 1 of 2”, which does not yet confirm active immunisation. Within Austria and for travelling to Austria, you must be able to present a proof of neutralising antibodies on top of the vaccination certificate. You must cover the costs for the test for neutralising antibodies yourself. This combination as a 2G certificate is valid for 270 days as of the day of the vaccination. If you wish, you may also receive the mRNA vaccines according to the usual vaccination scheme consisting of 2 doses; however, an increase in side effects cannot be ruled out in such a case. After you have received the second dose, your vaccination certificate as a 2G certificate will be valid for 270 days, under the condition that there were at least 14 days between the two doses.

  • If there is wrong information on your vaccination certificate or your recovery certificate that require corrections, please book an appointment at the point of contact at Austria Center Vienna (ACV) by calling 1450 or by registering online. Please note that addendums or rectifications can only be made upon appointment.  
  • Please bring the following to your appointment:  
    • Registration confirmation (Ticket) 
    • E-card (if you have one) 
    • Vaccination certificate 
    • Photo ID 
    • FFP2 mask 
  • To help you avoid unnecessary trips, please note the following: 
    • You will receive a vaccination certificate 2/2 for your “booster shot” (3rd dose) if fewer than 120 days have passed between your second and your third dose. If 120 or more days have passed between your second and third dose, you will receive a vaccination certificate 3/3. 
    • To have your recovery certificate processed, you must present a positive PCR test carried out in Austria.  
    • If you have not yet received your recovery certificate, please note the deadline of 15 days after your positive PCR test. 

With the new vaccination portal, data security and data quality are of utmost importance. Therefore, details on relatives are not saved if essential information is missing (i.e. First name, date of birth). 
You can add relatives at any time – over the course of the migration to the portal and also within the portal under “Personal details”. 

Instructions on how to set up your account can be found here: https://mein.wien.gv.at/FAQ  

Mix-and-match vaccines, meaning switching from one vaccine to another between shots, is an off-label application. This means that there is no official approval for this yet. The reason for this is that legal processes behind this special application may take longer than the medical knowledge about the vaccine is expanding.

Persons without an e-card can still get vaccinated for free in Vienna; your vaccination will be recorded in the yellow international vaccination certificate.  

You can also apply for an e-card for use of ELGA at the Austrian regional health insurance. A prerequisite for an e-card to be issued is that you have a recent photo available that meets the necessary requirements.  

It is not required that you have insurance coverage for an e-card to be issued or for you to use ELGA or the e-vaccination certificate. Moreover, no social security contributions will be charged. An e-card is necessary for a clear identification of persons, and so that this data can be digitally managed within the healthcare sector. Only once you have a social security number can your vaccination be added to the e-vaccination passport. 

  1. After you have applied for your e-card and you have received a social security number, your vaccination can be added by the vaccination site, and you can retrieve your vaccination certificate:  
  1. You can retrieve the certificates via a mobile phone signature or citizen’s card at “gesundheit.gv.at”.  
  1. Moreover, the City of Vienna has Homecare, a central service for 3G certificates. If you have been to a test centre, a pharmacy, or a lab to get tested, you will receive a text message or email with a document link personalised to you (direct link). To retrieve the certificates, you need your PIN, which you should have received initially; if you do not have a PIN, please inquire about it at a test centre. If you are not yet registered, you can do so by clicking on this link: https://app.wien.gv.at/covidregistrierung/ 

You can also pick up your certificate as a print-out in some test centres, in pharmacies, and at the Austrian Health Insurance Company.

The following vaccines are EMA-approved:  

  • Comirnaty (BioNTech-Pfizer)
  • COVID-19 vaccine Moderna
  • COVID-19 vaccine Janssen
  • Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca)
  • Novavax (Nuvaxovid)

If you received one of the mentioned, EMA-approved vaccines abroad, please contact the following doctor’s surgeries, as they can add your vaccination to your e-vaccination passport.

Questions about the vaccination mandate (11)

On 09 March 2022, the compulsory vaccination was suspended until further notice. Please contact the Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection for further information.

No, only requests at your primary residence are admissible. Requests are always checked against the Central Residence Register. If this is not successful, the request is dropped without being forwarded. Automated reply: “Your request was dropped as your primary residence is not in Vienna. Federal legislature provides that requests may only be made at the primary residence.”

Requests can be submitted via electronic registration at www.impfservice.wien or via mail. Electronically submitted requests can be processed more easily. Further information is available in the INFORMATION SHEET ON THE COVID-19 VACCINATION EXEMPTION.

Federal legislature has provided the following reasons for exemption only: *… – Please refer to those with your doctor’s reports. Other reasons for exemption cannot be accepted. 

Legal text: * Aside from pregnant persons, these also include persons whose health may be threatened because of the vaccination. This includes, according to the decree, persons with allergies or hypersensitivities to individual ingredients of the vaccine, persons with an acute flare of a severe inflammatory or autoimmune disease, or persons who are currently suffering from Covid-19 or another acute, severe, fevered infection or patients with multimorbidity. Those who have had severe side effects from the vaccination are also included. Persons who are assumed not to have sufficient immune response to the vaccine are also included. According to the decree, this includes persons who have had a bone marrow transplant, stem cell transplant, or organ transplant, as well as persons undergoing permanent cortisone treatment, persons with immunosuppression or other therapies with certain medications as well as cancer patients who have undergone chemotherapy, biological therapy, or radiation within the last six months or who are suffering from metastatic cancer even without ongoing treatment. Persons who have not developed sufficient immune response even after three doses of the vaccine are also included in the exemption (Decree of the federal minister for health on the COVID-19 vaccination mandate).

Federal legislature provides that all necessary doctor’s reports must be included. Please understand that therefore, neither a medical opinion, nor a consultation or a correspondence about potentially additional reports can be provided. Please contact your GP for this.

Only personal doctor’s reports may be accepted. Automated reply: “No personal doctor’s reports were submitted. Your request cannot be processed and will be dropped.”

Please note that forged documents must automatically be reported to the police.

No, you cannot appeal a declined request. But you may submit a new request. In case of a declined request: “You cannot appeal this decision. But you may submit a new request. Your previous document will not be kept under file. You must re-submit all relevant documents.”

Please be patient, as processing may take a while due to the large number of requests.

A medical officer or an epidemiologist will issue the approval of an exemption. If the submitted documents are not sufficient to make this decision, you will be informed by the public health service. In such a case, federal legislature provides that you can avoid the penalty by getting vaccinated.

Further inquiries cannot be answered.

Documentation and vaccination certificate (15)

The vaccination is confirmed in your vaccination certificate (Impfpass) by means of a stamp and, electronically, in the e-vaccination certificate. Selected test centres and vaccination centres will also provide you with a printout of your COVID-19 recovery certificate or proof of vaccination.

Please bring the yellow vaccination certificate (Impfpass) with you for the Covid vaccination if you already have one. It is the only valid international vaccination document to date.

No. You cannot opt out of the e-vaccination certificate. The Health Telematics Act 2012 defines the use of the e-vaccination passport as a significant public interest. The purpose is to have an Austria-wide vaccination register to be able to observe the incidence of infection and the immunisation rate.

No. There is no connection between an ELGA de-registration and the e-vaccination passport. Your vaccination is automatically entered into the e-vaccination passport.

Please go to the vaccination centre where you were vaccinated, and have them add the vaccination to your certificate. Bring your booking confirmation and a printout of your electronic vaccination certificate, or the vaccination card that documents your vaccination.

Persons, who were vaccinated against coronavirus in Austria, are issued with a vaccination certificate (Green Pass), which is in line with the EU Digital Covid Certificate. The certificate can be downloaded via the electronic vaccination certificate (access via gesundheit.gv.at). You need a mobile phone signature or citizen card (Bürgerkarte) to download your certificate. Once you have downloaded and saved the certificate, you can use it as proof that you were vaccinated against coronavirus as long as your vaccination is valid. You can download the certificate as often as you like.

Printouts of your proof of vaccination are available from selected Covid-19 test centres and vaccination centres:

Test centres (by district):

  • 10., Therme Wien (Kurbadstraße 14)
  • 15., Stadthalle (Roland-Rainer-Platz 1)
  • 22., Austria Center Vienna (Bruno-Kreisky-Platz)

Vaccination centres operated by MA15 – Vienna Public Health Services (by district):

  • 2., Karmelitergasse 9/1. Stock
  • 3., TownTown, Thomas-Klestil-Platz 8/2*
  • 12., Am Schöpfwerk 29/11/R10
  • 15., Gasgasse 8-10 (Eingang: Staglgasse 5a)
  • 18., Martinstraße 100/1. Stock
  • 21., Wassermanngasse 7
  • 21., Sanatorium Hera, Franz-Jonas-Platz 8/1/2. Stock
  • 22., Schrödingerplatz (Eingang VHS – Ausgang: Bernoullistraße 1)
  • 22., Austria-Center-Vienna, Bruno-Kreisky-Platz 1

Alternatively, your proof of vaccination can also be printed out by physicians in private practice, at customer service centres of the Austrian Public Health Insurance (ÖGK), or at ELGA ombuds offices.

*The vaccination service at TownTown will be closed from Friday, 4 March 2022 to Monday, 7 March 2022! The vaccination centre will re-open for you on Tuesday, 8 March 2022.

Yes. To make sure access to vaccination certificates is as simple and easy as possible, everyone who has received full immunisation against Covid-19 by the end of June 2021 gets a vaccination certificate by post.

If you have previously registered and performed a Covid-19 test in any test centre in Vienna, and therefore use Homecare, you will automatically receive a text message (SMS) as soon as your proof of vaccination has been created by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health. You can then retrieve your vaccination certificate via the web link provided in the text message, using your 12-digit access PIN for the Homecare app. If you no longer have this PIN, you need to go to one of the test centres in Vienna.

If you notice your vaccination certificate contains incorrect information, please call the AGES helpline at 0800 555 621.

If you have lost your vaccination certificate, you must file a notice of loss. Only once your data has been reviewed can you get a new vaccination certificate with a duplicate stamp. Since your vaccination certificate is an official document (just like your driver’s license for example), a notice of loss is necessary. You can apply for the issuing of a new vaccination certificate at the vaccination centre where you received your vaccination.  

You need to bring the following documents: 

  • official photo ID 
  • e-card  
  • excerpt of your electronic vaccination passport (which you can get free of charge at any pharmacy) 

Please contact the vaccination centre where you have received your vaccination and request a new vaccination certificate. Please bring an ID, your e-card, and an excerpt of your electronic vaccination passport. You can get such a statement/a copy of your vaccination record free of charge in all pharmacies or directly at Austria Center Vienna (ACV), Bruno-Kreisky-Platz 1, 1220 Vienna.

You can receive a certificate confirming your recovery for up to six months after your infection if the infection was confirmed via PCR test. If you have been infected within this six-month period and you were tested at one of the Vienna test centres, you will automatically receive a text message with a link. You can access your recovery certificate from there with your 12-digit PIN code. If you were infected more than six months ago, you can no longer obtain a recovery certificate and you should get vaccinated.  

However, you can still present existing proofs, such as quarantine order, a doctor’s report confirming a past infection with SARS-CoV-2 within the last six months, or a positive test confirming neutralising antibodies. Even if those were not used to issue a recovery certificate. 

The recovery certificate is valid for a period of up to six months after your recovery.  

If your recovery certificate has expired – six months after your recovery – all travel restrictions and entry bans that had been lifted before due to the 2G rule (formerly 3G) will apply to you. It is highly recommended (by the National Vaccination Board and the European Medicines Agency among others) that you get vaccinated against the Coronavirus. It is the only way to reduce the high risk of a severe progression of the disease caused by COVID-19 if you get infected, and it contributes to the containment of the pandemic 

The first vaccination regime with 2 doses (certificate 2/2 or 2/1) or the case of a recovery + 1 dose (certificate 1/1) is valid for 180 days. The vaccination certificate for the booster shot (certificate 3/ 3) or a recovery + 2 doses (certificate 3/3 or 3/1) will continue to be valid for 270 days. 
The validity of vaccination certificates for children and youths between 12 and 17 years of age is 210 days (7 months). For entering Austria, these vaccination certificates and other proofs of vaccination remain valid for 270 days. 
The vaccination certificate for one dose of Johnson&Johnson is no longer valid.

Getting vaccinated at your local physician’s practice (4)

Please consult your local physician about possible appointments. If they have registered to become part of the Corona vaccination programme, you can book an appointment with them.

The Covid vaccination is free for everyone who has health insurance and everyone who is insured with KFA Wien, as well as their eligible dependents. The same applies to insurance with ÖGK, BVAEB, and SVS.

If you do not have health insurance, your physician will invoice a vaccination fee. Your doctor can tell you about how much the fee will be.

Doctors in private practice currently administer the BioNTech/Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

Please bring your ID and, if you have one, your e-card and your vaccination certificate (Impfpass) to your appointment.

Vaccination process (9)

The Covid vaccination is free of charge.

Once you have registered online, you can book your personal vaccination appointment for your individual population group or rage group.

You can download the vaccination form for the Covid vaccination here. The vaccination form will also be sent to you via email in PDF format once you have made your appointment to get vaccinated. Ideally, you should bring the completed form with you for your vaccination appointment. If not, the forms will also be available on site for you to fill out. Please bring the completed form with you to your appointment. This helps us reduce waiting times.

Just like numerous other vaccinations, the Covid vaccination, too, is administered into the muscle of the upper arm.

For the BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, and Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca), and Novavax (Nuvaxovid) vaccines, two doses are required for you to be considered fully vaccinated (recommendation by the National Vaccination Board). For the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the National Vaccination Board also recommends that you get a second dose. Please note that the second dose should be an mRNA vaccine (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna). Depending on the vaccine, you can get your second dose between 3 and 8 weeks after your first dose:  

  • BioNTech/Pfizer 3-6 weeks
  • Moderna 3-6 weeks 
  • AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) 4-8 weeks 
  • Novavax (Nuvaxovid) 3-6 weeks 
  • Johnson & Johnson (Jansson) 4-8 weeks. 

You will start developing antibodies after the first dose and protection will set in three weeks after. For complete immunisation and lasting protection, the second dose as well as a booster shot is required. After the second dose, it will take around 7 days until your body has built up sufficient immunity to protect you from an infection.

Everyone who gets their 1st dose is guaranteed to also receive the 2nd dose within the required time frame. This time frame may vary between first and second dose, depending on the vaccine: BioNTech/Pfizer 3-6 weeks, Moderna 3-6 weeks, Novavax (Nuvaxovid) 3-6 weeks, AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) 4-8 weeks, and Johnson & Johnson /Janssen) 4-8 weeks. The 2nd dose, too, requires you to fill out the vaccination form, so that potential changes or comments since the 1st dose can be made.

Please make a new appointment online . You can also go to one of the sites that offer vaccination without appointment.

There is no need to worry, as long as the first shot does not date back too many weeks. Do make sure you get your booster shot, as you are not sufficiently protected after only one vaccination. Please call 1450 or book a new a new appointment online .

he Covid-19 vaccination is available to everyone as of 5 years of age who has a connection to Austria and proof thereof. Children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

Vaccine serums, effectiveness, and side effects (20)

In Austria, the following vaccines are currently being administered: BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen (Johnson&Johnson), and Novavax (Nuvaxovid). These vaccines will be administered as quickly as possible, depending on availability, medical recommendation, and age specifications.

The BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine is approved for persons as of 5 years of age. The National Vaccination Board recommends that the Moderna (Spikevax) vaccine be only administered to persons of 30 years and older. Upon express request and in line with the approval, the Moderna vaccine can also be administered to persons under 30 years of age. Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca), Jannsen (Johnson & Johnson), and Novavax (Nuvaxovid) are only approved for persons 18 years and older.  

Please note that children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a legal guardian.  The final decision on whether a child aged 5 to 12 will receive the Covid vaccination is with the attending physician.

When booking a vaccination appointment in your age group, you can select the vaccine you want. However, if you just show up at one of the vaccination boxes to get the vaccine without prior appointment, you cannot request a particular vaccine. Please note that the vaccine used depends on the availability and location where you get vaccinated. This means that you can only request a particular vaccine in exceptional cases.

An RNA or mRNA vaccines is based on special messenger molecules, the so-called ribonucleic acids (RNA). The injected messenger molecule contains the genetic code for a protein element against the coronavirus. After injection, the body will produce this protein element on its own and thus trigger a tailored immune response. This way, the immune system learns to produce antibodies that can attack the coronavirus immediately if an infection occurs, and they can keep it from reproducing in our bodies. After a short time, the injected RNA will be completely broken down by our bodies.

Even though only a short period of time passed between the first emergence of the coronavirus and the availability of effective vaccines, all requirements were met and the quality, type and extent of regulatory inspections and assessments were never compromised. All COVID-19 vaccines are developed in extensive studies and tested with several tens of thousands of participants for their safety and efficacy

No severe, unintended or even life-threatening side effects were observed during the clinical trials held worldwide for all Covid vaccines. After getting vaccinated, there may be a feeling of heat, swelling or pressure pain at the injection site. Reactions at the injection site are relatively common and occur in 8 out of 10 persons. This side effect may be inconvenient, but it is completely harmless and will disappear after a few days. However, if side effects persist or if you experience new side effects (such as dizziness, persistent headaches, blurred vision, shortness of breath, arm or leg pain, etc.) you should seek immediate medical attention for symptoms of thromboembolic events. The vaccine may be associated with undesired side effects such as very rare cases of blood clots but this does not affect the authorisation for use by EMA (European Medicines Agency) as the benefits of the vaccine in combating the threat of Covid-19 outweigh the risk of side effects. In any case, we advise you to monitor your health status after your vaccine.

Yes, you could take paracetamol for example. This will not have an impact on the effect of the vaccine.

Covid vaccines, like all vaccinations that are strongly encouraged by national regulations for purposes of personal and general interest, are covered by the Act on Indemnification for vaccination-induced disabilities. This means that in case of potential vaccine damage, even if no one is at fault, you will receive indemnification from the Republic of Austria.

For the BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna and Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) vaccines, two doses are required for full protection. Depending on the vaccine, you will receive the doses in the following intervals: BioNTech/Pfizer and Moderna 3-6 weeks, Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) 11-12 weeks. Your body will start building antibodies after the first dose, and protection will be achieved about 3 weeks after. For full, sustainable protection, the second dose is required. After the second dose, it takes about 7 days for the body to build up sufficient protection from an infection. For the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine, only one dose is required. Protection is achieved after about 3 weeks.

In most persons who were vaccinated, a sufficient number of antibodies was still detected 90 days after the vaccination. It is assumed that the effect will be longer than that, though this is not yet scientifically proven as the observation period is not yet long enough. Considering the new epidemiological situation caused by the Delta variant, it is recommended that you get a booster shot (depending on vulnerability 6 to 9 months or 9 to 12 months) after your full immunisation.

After around 7 days, protection is provided.

The Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) vaccine, just like all other COVID-19 vaccines, was tested extensively before it entered the market. Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) is not associated with a rise in the overall risk for blood clots (thromboembolic conditions). Moreover, the symptoms in case of a blood clot can be treated very well if detected in time; the vaccine is effective and well suited to prevent severe progressions of COVID-19. If side effects persist or occur (such as dizziness, headaches, vision impairment, shortness of breath, pain in arms or legs etc.), please consult a doctor to rule out thrombosis. National expert committees have spoken in favour of the use of the Vaxzevria (AstraZeneca) vaccine as its effectiveness is clearly documented and it thus saves lives every day.
Please note that the AstraZeneca vaccine is no longer available in Austria since 1 December 2021, and will also not be reordered.

Based on appropriate medical advice, the option of changing vaccines to an off-label use can be offered in individual cases, i.e. if severe side effects occurred after the first vaccination that justify using another vaccine for the second dose, or if a change is urgently desirable from the point of view of the person to be vaccinated. Medical certificates are no longer required for this, but the ultimate responsibility lies with the informing physician.

On 29 September 2021, the National Vaccination Board has issued a recommendation for a second dose after receiving the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine, to be administered 4-8 weeks after the first dose (off label) in order to increase protection. For the second dose, the use of an mRNA vaccine (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna) is recommended. Upon explicit request, it is also possible to receive another dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine as a second dose. You should wait at least 2 months after your first dose of Johnson & Johnson before getting the second one. Please note that naturally, the attending physician will be responsible for this decision. If you receive another dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, it will be documented as “2. Dosis” (D2). A vaccination certificate 2/2 will be issued, which (as of 1 February 2022) will be valid for 180 days after the 2nd dose.

Nuvaxovid is a vaccine to prevent the occurrence of a coronavirus infection 2019 (COVID-19) for persons as of 18 years of age. It consists of a protein-based, recombinant vaccine with an adjuvant, which is administered in two doses.

Nuvaxovid will be administered in two doses, with three weeks between the first and the second dose (16-45 days), and it is approved for persons as of 18 years of age. It is usually injected intramuscular into the upper arm.

Nuvaxovid is effective by preparing the body to defend itself against a COVID-19 infection. It contains a lab-produced version of the spike protein. It also contains an “adjuvant”, a substance that contributes to enhancing your body’s immune response to the vaccine. Once the vaccine is administered, your immune system will recognise the protein contained in it as something “foreign” and thus produce natural defences – antibodies and t-cells – to fight it. If you come into contact with SARS-CoV-2 after getting vaccinated, your immune system will recognise the spike protein in the virus and will be prepared to fend off the virus. Your antibodies and immune cells can protect you from COVID-19 by working together to kill the virus, by preventing it from entering your cells, and by destroying infected cells.

Nuvaxovid is currently not recommended for persons under 18 years of age.

It is perfectly normal to experience certain side effects after getting vaccinated. This shows that your body is reacting to the vaccine and producing antibodies. Usually, side effects are mild and go away on their own after a few days. They include headaches, nausea or vomiting, muscle or joint pains, sensitivity or pain at the injection site, fatigue, and discomfort. These side effects occur in 1 out of 10 vaccinated persons. Redness and swelling at the injection site, fever, shivers, and joint pains occurred in fewer than 1 out of ten vaccinated persons. Enlarged lymph nodes, high blood pressure, skin rashes, reddening of the skin, itching at the injection site and itchy rashes were recorded as occasional side effects (occurring in fewer than 1 out of 100 persons).

At the moment, the vaccine is mostly used for primary immunisations (1st dose) and for persons with contraindications for other approved vaccines.

Protection and safety (10)

No. The vaccine itself does not contain the virus but merely a blueprint for the production of a protein against which the body will build up antibodies.

The vaccines in use will protect you very well from potential severe progressions of COVID-19. This means that those who get vaccinated will not get infected at all or, if so, will only have a mild progression. It has not yet been medically clarified whether the vaccine also stops transmission, however, a growing body of evidence suggests that Covid-19 vaccines may also reduce transmission

Yes! The mask is to protect yourself, but most of all, those around you. Viruses can be inhaled and spread through breathing air.

Yes, neither exercise nor visiting a sauna will impact the effectiveness of the vaccine. But do avoid high-intensity training for the first 2 to 3 days. If you are feeling under the weather after you received your shot, it is better not to exercise. If you do weight training, the injection site might hurt.

Please avoid excessive alcohol consumption for the first few days after receiving the vaccine.

No, in such a case it is essential that you consult your doctor first. If you take so-called immuno-suppressants or corticosteroids, unintended interactions need to be investigated by a doctor before a potential vaccination.

According to the recommendation of the National Vaccination Board, the COVID-19 vaccines currently approved are to be classified in the same way as inactivated vaccines. Therefore it is not strictly necessary to allow time between them and other vaccinations. You should wait for 14 days before or after scheduled surgery, but urgent surgeries can be performed at any time.

Further information is available here: https://www.aekwien.at/web/wien/faq-covid-impfung

No, please cancel your appointment by calling 1450  so that someone else may take your place. Make a new appointment for at least three weeks after your illness by calling 1450.

Yes, you should still get vaccinated after recovering from COVID-19. According to the most recent recommendations by the Austrian Vaccination Board (as of 5 July 2021), it is best to wait for about four weeks after your recovery, and to get only one vaccination dose.

In cases like this, it is assumed that your existing immunity will be boosted and thus your protection against Covid-19 is extended by the vaccination. Independently of current medical/immunological recommendations, two doses may be required for international travel, in which case a second vaccination can and should be administered for purely formal reasons. Please note that an increased rate of vaccination reactions cannot be excluded for people who have previously recovered from Covid-19.

If you are infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the time between your 1st and your 2nd vaccination, you should get your 2nd dose no sooner than 4 weeks after your recovery (off label). It is recommended that you get a 3rd dose no sooner than 6 months after your 2nd dose in order to keep up protection. 

Fears, doubts, and worries. Counselling and support (13)

The City of Vienna offers the Care-Free Vaccination programme (Sorgen-los Impfen) to people who are worried about getting vaccinated and/or are scared of it. Within this programme, there is a Covid-19 Helpline Vienna – Corona-Sorgenhotline Wien (for counselling via telephone, getting appointments or booking continuous counselling) and the Vaccination Salon (Impf-Salon) – a specially designed space with specially trained staff to support you. The aim of the Care-Free Vaccination programme is to make the Covid-19 vaccination available to every single person in Vienna. Call in anytime to talk to our staff at the Covid-19 Helpline Vienna (01 4000 53000 – Monday to Sunday from 8am to 8pm) and find out more!

Everyone who feels exhausted by the pandemic, everyone who needs help, and everyone who simply needs someone to talk to may call the Covid-19 Helpline Vienna (Corona-Sorgenhotline Wien) (01 4000 53000). For anyone who is especially worried or scared when it comes to getting vaccinated, the staff of the Covid-19 Helpline now have a new special offer.

If the thought of getting vaccinated is overwhelming to you or makes you feel scared, you can call the Covid-19 Helpline Vienna (Corona-Sorgenhotline Wien) anytime (01 4000 53000). There will be counsellors on the other end who are not just experts when it comes to vaccines in general, but who can also be helpful and supportive with all other issues. They will listen regardless of what your issue is. If you would like to discuss the topic of getting vaccinated, we will work together to find the best way towards a care-free vaccination. 

We have set up a special location (the “Impf-Salon” or Vaccination Salon) for this, where our trained staff will take time to talk to all visitors. The Vaccination Salon is not a regular doctor’s practice or anything the like, but it is a place designed especially for those who have concerns about getting vaccinated

In special cases, there is also the option (subject to prior alignment with the Covid-19 Helpline Vienna) to get vaccinated against Covid-19 at home if it impossible or difficult to come to the vaccination salon.

  • The “Sorgen-los Impfen” programme is open to anyone who has particularly negative emotions towards the Covid vaccine. This may include individuals with a fear of needles, injections, or other things relating to the experience of getting vaccinated. 
  • Moreover, individuals who feel uncomfortable using the regular health services and vaccination sites are invited to register for the programme. 
  • People who are especially worried that the vaccination might put them at a disadvantage (problems with friends, family or their employer, side effects, pain) can get particularly extensive counselling.

The Vaccination Salon (Impf-Salon) is at Brigittenauer Hallenbad public swimming pool (Klosterneuburger Straße 93-97, 1200 Vienna) and open Monday to Sunday from 7am to 7pm (with walk-in appointments before 1pm). You can get there via public transport with U6 (Jägerstraße stop), with tram lines 2, 5, 30, 31, 33 (Wexstraße stop), and with bus line 5B (Klosterneuburger Straße stop).

The Vaccination Salon (Impf-Salon) is open daily (Monday – Sunday) from 7am to 7pm. Between 7am and 1pm we also offer walk-in appointments. However, it is recommended to call the Corona-Sorgenhotline Wien (Covid-19 Helpline Vienna) (01 4000 53000) ahead of time and make an appointment. This way, you won’t have to wait – and the Vaccination Salon staff have much more time for their visitors than staff at the regular vaccination sites. If desired, the Covid-19 Helpline Vienna also offers extensive counselling and continued care after your Covid vaccination.

The Vaccination Salon (Impf-Salon) is located at Brigittenauer Bad (public swimming pool), it is comfortably furnished and doesn’t have the look and feel of a healthcare facility. The staff is comprised of specially trained doctors, psychologists, and social workers who will take ample time for their visitors. You will decide together what the best way is for you to get vaccinated. 

Appointments are organised in such a way that there will be zero pressure on site.

Accompanying persons are very welcome at the Vaccination Salon. There will be plenty of time for you and the person accompanying you to settle in and to discuss any and all questions you might have. If you decide to come by yourself, you still won’t be alone. Our experienced staff will be at your side for any support you might need.

The Care-Free Vaccination programme (Sorgen-los Impfen) is available under the same conditions as the regular vaccination programme of the City of Vienna. Find more information on this here: https://impfservice.wien/corona/.

When setting up the Vaccination Salon (Impf-Salon), we took great care to make it as accessible as possible. It is accessible for persons with reduced mobility, but also for individuals with visual impairments, thanks to a tactile guiding system. Moreover, our staff on site are always ready to help if you need additional support.

It is nobody’s business but yours which health care services you use. You do have to register with your name, so that the vaccine can be recorded in your (electronic) vaccination certificate, but this information is not forwarded to anyone, nor is it recorded anywhere else.

If contact to other people makes you uncomfortable, you can simply let our staff know when you call for your appointment on the Corona-Sorgenhotline Wien (Covid-19 Helpline Vienna). Those who must be present for the vaccination will then make sure to reduce their interactions with you to the utmost minimum.

The Vaccination Salon (Impf-Salon) is very spacious. When setting it up, great care was taken to avoid any factors that might trigger fears or discomfort. If you are still unsure, you are welcome to discuss with our staff at the Corona-Sorgenhotline Wien (Covid-19 Helpline Vienna) (01 4000 35000) to find the best possible solution for you.

Breastfeeding and nursing Mothers (20)

Yes, you can still get vaccinated. There is no indication that mRNA vaccines or their components are passed into the breastmilk. Vector vaccines do not bear this risk either. On the contrary, the positive effects of breastfeeding are well documented. It is therefore also not recommended to stop breastfeeding after you got vaccinated.

The vaccination provides almost complete protection from a severe course, or progression, of the disease. Although you do not have a higher risk of contracting the SARS-CoV-2 virus during pregnancy, the risk of having a severe progression of the disease is higher if you are infected while pregnant. Your risk of having a premature birth is also much higher if you are infected with the virus. By getting vaccinated while pregnant or breastfeeding, you pass on antibodies to your baby, thus automatically providing basic immunity to your little one after birth.

You can get your Covid vaccination from the 15th week of pregnancy. If you have been vaccinated earlier on during your pregnancy because you did not yet know that you were pregnant, please note that this is no reason to cancel your second vaccination appointment (booster shot) with BioNTech/Pfizer, even if AstraZeneca was used for your first vaccination

If you cannot make your scheduled vaccination appointment because you in hospital or having your baby at this very time, you can change your appointment by calling the hotline 1450 or changing the settings in your online account at impfservice.wien.

Yes, everyone who gets their first vaccination will be fully immunised.

The mRNA vaccine by Biontech/Pfizer should be used during pregnancy because this vaccine has been researched most extensively for this specific group. The mRNA vaccine by Moderna may also be used.

In general, no different or more severe vaccination reactions have been observed during pregnancy than in non-pregnant persons. You may feel pain, redness or swelling in the arm where you were vaccinated. Fatigue, headache, muscle or joint pain, swelling of the lymph nodes, nausea/vomiting, chills or fever may also occur very frequently. These symptoms usually disappear within 48 days after the vaccination.

During your pregnancy, contact the maternity clinic immediately if you run a fever >of more than 39°C or if your body temperature >remains above 37.2°C for more than 48 hours, but also if you notice reduced fetal movements, vaginal bleeding, suspected preterm labour or rupture of the membranes (“breaking the waters”). Is there any medication I can take for side effects during pregnancy? As long as you do not suffer from drug intolerance or allergies, you can take 1000mg paracetamol up to 3 times a day for pain and high temperature. It is also fine to take metoclopramide for nausea/vomiting up to 3 times a day during your pregnancy.

The drug approval studies did not provide specific data on pregnant persons, but by now 70,000 persons vaccinated during pregnancy have been recorded in the US vaccination safety register V-Safe. No relevant safety risks were observed after they received an mRNA vaccine (BioNTech/Pfizer or Moderna).

As long as you do not suffer from drug intolerance or allergies, you can take 1000 mg paracetamol up to 3 times a day for pain and high temperature. It is also fine to take metoclopramide for nausea/vomiting up to 3 times a day during your pregnancy. The informing physician on site will again provide expert advice on this topic before you are vaccinated.

The National Vaccination Board (NIG) recommends that you get vaccinated (with the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine) as soon as possible (approx. 6-8 weeks post-partum). 

YES, numerous studies, registers of pregnant persons, and experience with thousands of pregnant persons has shown that there is no difference regarding side effects compared to people who are not pregnant.

NO, the vaccine contains a protein that corresponds to a part of the coronavirus (“spike protein”). The body recognises this part as “foreign”. It then starts producing antibodies that will attack the virus in case of an infection with COVID-19 and render it harmless as much as possible. The antibodies can reach your child through the umbilical cord and thus also protect your child. The protein is broken down completely within a few days from the vaccination; the vaccine is not transferred from the parent to the unborn child.

NO, our body breaks down the vaccine within only a few days; only the antibodies remain which will protect us against the coronavirus.

No medication is primarily used on pregnant persons, as application data from non-pregnant persons is prioritised. For this reason, vaccines are usually not approved for pregnant persons until years later. However, many people are not aware that they are pregnant and thus get vaccinated in the early stages of pregnancy. The observation of this data allows conclusions on whether vaccines are safe for foetuses or not. In the case of the Covid vaccination, more than 8 billion people were vaccinated within only one year, among them many thousand pregnant persons; no differences were observed in the state of health of the newborns whose parents were vaccinated compared to those who were not.

NO, studies have shown that there is no difference in the occurrence of miscarriages between vaccinated and unvaccinated persons.

NO But studies have shown that if a pregnant person gets infected with COVID-19, the risk of a stillbirth doubles.

Most complications during pregnancy, such as bleeding/miscarrying occur before the 14th week of pregnancy. In general, more than 20% of all pregnancies end in a miscarriage. Therefore, if a pregnant person were to get vaccinated during that time, a causal connection would arise between the vaccination and the miscarriage, even though there are currently no studies that substantiate these concerns. To avoid this misconception, any vaccinations are usually recommended only as of the second trimester. For this reason, the Austrian Society for Gynaecology and Obstetrics has decided to recommend this vaccination, too, to be administered as of the 14th week of pregnancy.

With Moderna, a rare complication (myocarditis) has been shown in young people, which only very rarely occurred after the Pfizer vaccine. For this reason, Pfizer is usually considered the first choice for persons under 30 years of age.

NO, the vaccine does not pass over into the breastmilk, however, the antibodies produced by the parent do and thus provide passive immunoprotection for your baby. 

Pre-existing conditions and persons suffering from allergies (3)

Only if you have consulted your physician beforehand. In many cases, you will still be able to get vaccinated. But it is essential to consult a doctor first.

Please consult your physician before getting vaccinated. In most cases, you will still be able to get vaccinated without any risk. To avoid haematoma, you should apply pressure (not rub) firmly, for 3 to 5 minutes, to your injection site.

Please inform your doctor about any potential allergies and bring your allergy pass with you to your vaccination appointment. In most cases, it will be possible to get vaccinated. Only people suffering from multiple allergies with unknown allergy inducers or people who have suffered from immediate allergies after receiving a vaccination should not get vaccinated. The informing physician on site will ask you about your allergies again and provide expert advice before you are vaccinated.

Persons in need of care and housebound persons (3)

Of course, you can bring somebody to help you. The person accompanying you can also be vaccinated themselves if they want to.

Please start by asking relatives or friends if they can take you to a vaccination site. If this is not possible, a transport service or patient transport is available. You have to apply for either option at your general practitioner’s practice (family doctor). 

You must cover the cost for the transport service yourself and also organise your appointment yourself. In case of absolutely imperative medical reasons, the costs for this transport may be covered by your insurance if you submit the relevant permit notice afterwards. 

You must also organise the patient transport yourself. If you have a transport permit from your general practitioner (family doctor), your insurance will cover the cost of the transport. If you do not have valid insurance, or if you have not received a transport permit, you can still request a transport, however, you must cover the costs yourself. 

If you have received a permit, you can either call 1450 to make a vaccination appointment, or you can go to a walk-in vaccination site to get your vaccination there.

Please hand your vaccination form to your legal guardian. On the back of the form, there is a consent statement that your legal guardian needs to sign. You may answer the questions about your health on the front of the form (medical history) yourself. Your legal guardian should also sign the second vaccination form for your booster shot right away. Please do not fill out the questions about your health (medical history) on the second form until shortly before your appointment for your booster shot, as it is possible that some things may change between your first and second dose.

Booster shot (“third dose”) (8)

For the third dose (or the second dose if you have received the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine), you will receive an mRNA vaccine (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna), regardless of which vaccine you received initially. The National Vaccination Board recommends the Moderna vaccines for persons 30 years or older. Upon express request and in line with the approval, the Moderna vaccine can also be administered to persons under 30 years of age.

Switching between shots (1st, 2nd, and 3rd dose) is called “mix-and-match vaccines” As this is not yet approved by the individual manufacturers, its application is off-label.

It is recommended that everyone over 12 years of age get another dose 4 months after their primary immunisation (regardless of which one of the vaccines approved in Austria you have received initially). Please note that children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a legal guardian.  

If an antibody test has revealed that your body has not built up protection after the vaccination (i.e. non-responder), you can request an earlier appointment by emailing cov19.impfung@ma15.wien.gv.at (Subject: Impfschutz bei Immunsuppression).

It is recommended that everyone over 12 years of age get a “booster shot” (3rd dose) as soon as 4 months after their first dose. Please note that children under 14 years of age must be accompanied by a legal guardian. The attending physician will be in charge of deciding whether the “booster shot” (3rd dose) should be administered, especially if it is to be administered sooner than 4 months after the primary immunisation.

Data from Israel and the United Kingdom suggest that in some cases, elderly people and persons with pre-existing conditions/immunosuppression may not be fully protected from the Delta variant for a full 9 months. These data also show that a booster shot can help reduce infections, breakthrough infections, and hospitalisations associated with those infections.

For persons whose infection with SARS-CoV-2 was detected by PCR or neutralising antibody tests (neutralisation tests/relevant NT correlates; before the first dose), a one-time vaccination is sufficient (off-label) for primary protection. It is recommended that you get vaccinated as of 4 weeks after the infection (PCR) or falling ill (recovery). 

Persons, who have recovered and have been vaccinated, should get another dose as of 6 months after their first dose; this also applies if you were vaccinated with the Janssen vaccine. A third dose should be administered 6-9 months after the second dose.

If the recommended date for your “booster shot” (3rd dose) takes place during a pregnancy, it is recommended to get the vaccination in the 2nd trimester (as of 14 weeks of pregnancy). As for all COVID-19 vaccinations during pregnancy, the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine will be administered (off-label).

If a breakthrough infection (symptomatic SARSCoV-2 infection) or an asymptomatic infection occurs after the first two doses, it is currently recommended that you get your booster shot (3rd dose) 180 days after your recovery. Persons at risk or chronically ill persons can get an antibody test no sooner than 1 month after recovery.

According to the current state of research, an additional (4th) vaccination is not generally recommended for immunocompetent persons. Persons who belong to high-risk groups (e.g. immunocompromised persons) and persons aged 65 years and older, for whom a shorter duration of vaccination protection is to be expected, are offered an additional dose at the earliest 6 months (180 days) after the “booster shot” (3rd dose). Please note that the attending physician makes the decision regarding an additional dose after an individual risk-benefit assessment and at the patient’s personal request.

Covid vaccination for children between 5 and 11 years of age (8)

The City of Vienna offers children between 5 and 11 years of age to get vaccinated against COVID-19 (off label). Children must be accompanied to their appointment by a legal guardian. Please note that the final decision on whether a child aged 5 to 12 will receive the Covid vaccination is with the attending physician.

The Comirnaty (BioNTech/Pfizer) vaccine will be used exclusively, no other vaccines are provided. 

Yes. The dose for children between 5 and 11 years of age is 10 µg. This corresponds to about a third of the regular dose for adults.

You can book via telephone (call 1450) or via this website. You can also take your child to get vaccinated without an appointment, at a walk-in vaccination site or a vaccination box.

Yes. Please book the second appointment via telephone (call 1450) or via this website. If you do not book an appointment, you will be assigned one automatically (for 21 days after your first appointment) via email.

It is recommended to refrain from exercise for four days (no PE at school, no gymnastics at day care, no sports clubs). Competitive sports should be avoided for seven days.

Please consult with your paediatrician for any questions you might have. If you have booked a vaccination appointment for your child, there will of course be medical staff on site to answer your question. In addition, the City of Vienna offers a free-of-charge online workshop for interested parents who would like to seek advice. A team of doctors will answer all your questions and share their experience regarding vaccination programmes and potential side effects. If you would like to participate in the online workshop or have questions, please contact us via wig-workshop@gmx.at or via telephone by calling 01 317 39 29112 (on weekdays between 8am and 6pm).
