When the population of the Schwaz district was first vaccinated, around 42,500 people had been vaccinated by Monday afternoon. The country announced this in the evening at the request of the APA. 48,500 out of 64,000 eligible people in 39 communities had signed up for vaccination from Biontech and Pfizer.
The state pointed out that the number 42,5000 should be seen as a guideline and not as an exact absolute value. Because some municipalities would only enter the vaccinations in the IT system at the end of the day. The digital recording of the vaccinations continues, it said. Further vaccinations would be carried out as part of the initiative until Monday evening and partly on Tuesday. Thus, the final vaccination result was not yet known in figures.
185 people still infected in the Schwaz district
76 percent of those eligible for vaccination had previously registered for a vaccination with the active ingredient from Biontech and Pfizer. Due to the spread of the CoV variant, which was first detected in South Africa, the Unterländer district received a special tranche from the European Union in the form of 100,000 vaccine doses. The vaccination coverage is to be accompanied by a scientific study in which national and international doctors and virologists are involved.
