The procedure for Corona vaccination is organized similarly throughout Austria. In general, you will be guided through the vaccination appointment in these Steps:

1. Registration: Ideally, have your e-card or ID ready for identity verification and your vaccination card to document your Corona vaccination. If you do not have an immunization record, you will receive a replacement certificate. If available, please also bring your allergy passport for Corona immunization.

2. Information: You will receive informational materials, which you should ideally already bring with you to your appointment (educational note sheet, medical history and consent forms). However, the information materials can also be read and completed at your leisure on site at the immunization appointment.

**If you have any questions, for example about the risks or possible side effects of the Corona vaccination, you can ask them during the medical consultation. Individual needs and concerns will be addressed during the one-on-one consultation.

4th Vaccination: Medical health personnel will administer the vaccination and document it in the vaccination record or on the replacement certificate. Usually, after the vaccination, you will also receive the so-called vaccination certificate, on which there is a QR code. Alternatively, you can also have the certificate issued subsequently at the pharmacy.

5. follow-up: Immediately after the vaccination, you should stay for about 15 minutes in a waiting area under the supervision of medical professionals.
