Vienna has opened up its vaccinations to people from all age groups.

As of Friday, June 25th, people in all age groups can now register for a vaccine in Vienna.

The first 20,000 vaccination appointments for people aged 31 to 39, the last age category which had been restricted from vaccinating, will be made available on Friday.

There are just over 300,000 people in this age category, 20 percent of which have already been fully immunised and 45 percent have been partially vaccinated. 

Generally, those in this age group who have already received a vaccine were either part of a company which has vaccinated its employees, or who are in a high risk group. 

Previous appointments for parents and children aged between twelve and 17 were very popular.
