Today, Wednesday, the first Austrian women and men immunized with the Janssen vaccine (Johnson & Johnson), which was originally intended as a single-use vaccine, will receive a reminder to refresh them. The Ministry of Health announced to the APA that the letters should be sent by the end of the week. “All those who were vaccinated with Janssen need a second vaccination dose,” emphasized Minister Wolfgang Mückstein (Greens).
“I appeal to everyone to adhere to the recommendations of the National Vaccination Board. Get vaccinated now! Maintain your vaccination protection and get your further vaccination dose, according to the recommendations. This is the only way to protect yourself against severe Covid-19 -The course of the disease, intensive medical treatment and long-term consequences, “Mückstein stated in the statement.
The APA’s letter to households with those vaccinated states: “You should pick up your second dose as early as 28 days after your first vaccination with the Covid-19 vaccine Janssen. Make an appointment today.” In addition, Mückstein recommends in the three-page letter: “Tell others about your experience with the vaccination and thus take away other people’s fears.” There are also recommendations for websites that provide information about “fake news”.
Reminder letters are also prepared for the third dose for persons vaccinated with other vaccines. According to the Ministry of Health, shipping will begin next week.
