I got my first Covid-19 vaccination shot in the UK – how do I get a 2nd shot in Austria?

There may be a different approach to take depending on which region you live in. From posts in the British in Austria Facebook group, the following approaches have proven successful for getting the first shot from the UK registered.

  • Calling 1450 to arrange a vaccination date – and taking your 1st jab vaccination card with you, so that the type of vaccination (e.g. Pfizer-BioNTech, AstraZeneca or Moderna) can be entered and also the batch information.
  • (Vienna): Calling MA15 and having an Amtsarzt add your UK vaccination added to your official healthSozialministerium The Austrian Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care and Consumer Protection is responsible for the following fields: The health care system Initiatives for people with disabilities Consumer protection Public health and medical issues Care and support The rights of consumers and the protection of their health Senior citizens’ policy Social policy Social insurance record. Your Hausarzt may also be able to do this.
  • Using the NHS app (not the NHS Covid-19 app) to produce a vaccination certificate, you can then receive a PDF version of it, in order to have it added to your Austrian records.
