For whom is the vaccination recommended?
- strongly recommended for all persons with an increased risk of severe disease progression (see vaccination schedule Austria "Covid 19, Indication")
- for all persons from the completed 12th year of life (vaccination approved from the completed 6th month of life)
- Persons with Long COVID require individualized care - vaccination decisions should be made in a personalized manner within the framework of this care
What is the current vaccination schedule?
From the age of 12, single vaccination, preferably in autumn (probability > 95% that virus contact has already taken place through vaccination and/or infection (= basic immunization in the immunological sense)).
When should vaccination take place?
The minimum interval to the last exposure (=infection or vaccination) should be 6 months, better 12 months. Early vaccination is recommended for certain risk groups - interval to the last exposure at least 4 months.
What should be used for the vaccination?
Exclusively with a variant vaccine directed against the Omikron variant XBB.1.5.
Should I have an antibody determination done?
Antibody determination is neither recommended nor useful (except for immunosuppressed individuals) - there is no antibody titer to indicate when protection will be effective, nor is it possible to predict how long protection will be effective at a given AK titer level.
Where can I get vaccinated?
