Austria will vaccinate all its citizens against A/H1N1 starting from next Monday, media reports said Wednesday.
The nationwide preparatory work for vaccination is now in full swing. The Key targets of vaccination are these high-risk groups, such as children, the elderly and pregnant women.
In the capital city of Vienna, the social insurance institutions and the city government has set up 21 vaccination stations. In Salzburg, a north state of Austria, in addition to the capital city Salzburg, several important regional cities also have set up vaccination stations.
In Vorarlberg, a west state of Austria, residents have been asked to contact their family doctors for taking vaccination. The number of new cases in this state has been growing rapidly over the past two days, increasing from 38 in the evening of November 3to 45 at noon of November 4.
In the states of Carinthia, Styria and Burgenland, the government and medical agencies are conducting a large-scale vaccination preparation. Some clinics will also offer vaccination services.
The situation of A/H1N1 influenza is not optimistic in Austria. The number of new patients increases every day. Austrian health experts admit that the A/H1N1 “virus has already penetrated the country.”
