Validity rules

Only when a series of COVID-19 vaccinations has been concluded can they be used in Austria as evidence in accordance with the 2-G rule (vaccinated or recovered). When two doses of a vaccine are necessary (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca), the vaccination certificate is valid from the date of the second dose, whereas in the case of Janssen/Johnson & Johnson the vaccination certificate is valid from the 22nd day after the vaccination was received.
In the case of persons who have recovered and only receive one dose, the vaccination certificate is immediately valid.

The second vaccination is valid for a maximum of 360 days from the day it is received.
Vaccines which require only one dose (such as that from Johnson & Johnson) are valid from the 22nd day after the vaccination was received for a total of 270 days from the day of vaccination.
For persons who have already recovered from the infection and who have only been vaccinated once, this vaccination is valid for 360 days from the day on which it was received.
Any additional vaccination (in the case of single-dose vaccines and the second vaccination in the case of persons who have already recovered from COVID-19) is valid for 360 days.
However, between the first and second vaccination a period of at least 14 days must have passed, and between a second and third vaccination there must be a gap of at least 120 days.

Please note: as of 6 December 2021, the validity of vaccination certificates is reduced from 360 to 270 days. This does not apply to persons who have recovered and have been vaccinated twice. For this group, the vaccination certificate will continue to be valid for 360 days. From 3 January 2022, a vaccination certificate for a single dose of the Janssen vaccine is no longer valid.
