Registration for the vaccine is now open in all Austrian states for everyone over the age of 16, regardless of whether you are a member of a risk group or not.
However, despite registration being open, this does not guarantee priority access to the vaccine.
Initially, people will be able to register their interest on the platform – and will be contacted at a later date for an appointment.
Vienna authorities said “the time of the reservation has no influence on the sequence during vaccination”, while Der Standard reports that the policy is the same in other states.
Here’s how – and when – to register in your Austrian state.
You should register in the state where you main residence is.
If you are a member of a risk group, you will need to bring evidence of your medical condition to the appointment. You will also need your e-card.
