To put it into perspective: The proportion of those who have been vaccinated, including those who have recovered, is currently around 67 percent in Austria. Basically, the willingness to vaccinate among Austrian citizens is higher (69.5 percent) than among migrants (51.5 percent) – but there are blatant differences in this group, as Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein announced on Tuesday, citing a survey by Statistics Austria.
Accordingly, it is above all the Turks (73.2 percent) and the Czechs (73 percent) who would stick to the recommendation in an exemplary manner. They have the highest vaccination rate of all foreigner groups in Austria – even higher than the Germans (72.4 percent). And the Afghans (72.3 percent) would also be vaccinated, stressed the minister.
In fact, it is mainly immigrants from the east who have so far not taken the first, second or third trick. The five biggest vaccine-muffle within the Austrian population are the Romanians, the Russians, the Serbs, the Hungarians and the Poles.
