Only when a series of COVID-19 vaccinations has been concluded can they be used in Austria as evidence in accordance with the 2-G rule (vaccinated or recovered). When two doses of a vaccine are necessary (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca), the vaccination certificate is valid from the date of the second dose, whereas in the case of Janssen/Johnson & Johnson the vaccination certificate is valid from the 22nd day after the vaccination was received.
In the case of persons who have recovered and only receive one dose, the vaccination certificate is immediately valid.
Validity period from 01.02.2022: The first vaccination series (2 vaccinations or recovery + 1 vaccination) is valid for 180 days. The booster vaccination certificate (3 vaccinations or recovery + 2 vaccinations) is valid for 365 days. For entry into Austria, vaccination certificates or other proofs of vaccination are still valid for 365 days.
Please note: From 3 January 2022, a vaccination certificate for a single dose of the Janssen/Johnson&Johnson vaccine is no longer valid.
