How many people have been vaccinated in Austria - and which state is the fastest?

Austria’s ‘Coronavirus Vaccination Dashboard’ provides live updates on the vaccination situation, including round ups of each state.

The map, launched on Tuesday, January 12th, breaks down how many vaccinations have been carried out in each Austrian state along with a percentage of the population who have been vaccinated in each state. 

The interactive map also provides overall figures of how many people have been vaccinated in Austria as a whole.

In total, 753,824 people have received a first dose – while 272,420 people have been vaccinated completely.

This means that 10.01 percent of the ‘vaccinable population’ have had one shot – and 3.62 percent of the population have received both doses. 

On average, a person is vaccinated every 2.9 seconds in Austria, up from 5.1 seconds in February.
