Press release: 12.698-289/21
– More than half of the approximately 605 000 pupils aged 12 and older
in the school year 2021/22 had an up-to-date COVID-19 protection as
of 30 November 2021. In comparison, the vaccination rate of 86% among
university students is higher. The estimates of the vaccination status
of pupils and university students were obtained by Statistics Austria
on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research.
The basis is data from the school statistics, university statistics
and the Austrian National Vaccination Register as of 30 November 2021
as well as the preliminary population status as of 1 October 2021. International
vaccination data were also taken into account when estimating the vaccination
status of university students from abroad.
"At the end of November, 55% of pupils aged 12
and older across Austria were immunised against COVID-19. This is a
significant increase of 12 percentage points compared to the percentage
at the end of September 2021. The vaccination rate of university students
rose to 86% at the end of November and is thus significantly higher
compared to the overall population of the same age," said Tobias
Thomas, Director General of Statistics Austria.
