In Austria no federal state is free of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE). Therefore this vaccination against TBE is recommended to all persons living in Austria. This recommendation is also valid for travellers coming to Austria or travellers going abroud to endemic regions. The TBE vaccine protects against all known TBE subtypes. In case of need a fast immunisation schedule can be applied (Austrian Vaccination Schedule 2021). Best you ask already your physician or pharmacists at home.
As long as the Green Passport is not applicable in Austria and the whole EU, the COVID-19 vaccination can be proofed by your paper vaccination passport. The vaccination will be acknowledged by the 22nd day after the first vaccination with a vaccine approved by EMA. (see further information on the website of the Austrian Ministry for Health).
