Registration is non-binding. Currently, vaccines are still available in limited quantities, which is why vaccinations are being carried out in accordance with the Tyrolean vaccination schedule. Certain age and occupational groups are being prioritized.
As soon as vaccines are available for each respective group, pre-registered persons will receive further information. The time at which a reservation is made does not affect the person’s position in the queue. The queue system is based on the Tyrolean vaccination schedule and the phases described within it.
Non-binding reservations are intended for the general public.
The reservation process is as follows
Please note that online registration is recommended in any case. Please support those
who cannot do this themselves. In exceptional cases, a reservation can also be made by calling
the health hotline on 1450. If you do not have access to the internet or need help making a reservation, please ask a relative or a trusted person to enter the data with you.
- Call up the reservation website. This website is only available in German.
- Indicate whether you are making the reservation for yourself or for another person.
- Enter your personal details. These details are used to verify your identity.
- In addition, enter your Austrian national insurance number here and, if applicable, your affiliation to an occupational group. If you do not have an Austrian national insurance number, tick the box on the right and add an explanation.
- Enter your contact details. This data is essential so we can inform you in a timely manner about the availability of the vaccines and how to proceed.
- Select your preferred vaccination site (private doctors’ practice or vaccination hub)
- Provide any other information relevant to the COVID-19 vaccination (such as pre-existing conditions).
You are now pre-registered.
Following pre-registration, all persons will receive further information in a timely manner via the contact details provided (by SMS or e-mail) as soon as the vaccines are available for the corresponding age or occupational group. This will require some patience due to the current supply situation – however, all available vaccines will be used as soon as possible.
Further questions about the online reservation
Where can I be vaccinated?
Visit www.tirolimpft.at to add your name to the waiting list for a vaccination from a local physician or a vaccination centre. You will receive an invitation to an appointment by SMS or email within due course. If you choose to be vaccinated by a local physician, the clinic will contact you.
The registration platform www.tirolimpft.at is only available in German. I don’t understand what it says. What can I do?
You can ask a German-speaking person to complete the registration form for you at www.tirolimpft.at or, in exceptional cases, by phoning 1450.
Appointments for the second Covid-19 vaccination are binding
Your invitation letter will list the date for your first and second vaccination appointment. If you confirm the invitation, you accept both appointments. The appointments are binding. If you cannot attend on the first or second date, you must reject both appointments. You will remain in the system after rejecting the offered appointments. During the next booking round, you will be offered another two appointments. Again, be sure to check in advance that you will be able to attend both.
Provide your recovery date following a Covid infection – automatic invitation to a vaccination appointment approximately six months later
If you have been infected with Covid-19 during the past six to eight months and have proof of your recovery, you can enter this information into your personal data page of ‘Tyrol gets vaccinated’. Specify the last day of self-isolation as listed on your certificate from the health authorities. You will receive an invitation for a vaccination appointment approximately six months after your recovery date. Persons who have recovered from Covid-19 only receive one dose of any two-dose vaccination.
Update your personal data set
If you have entered the waiting list for a Covid-19 vaccination through ‘Tyrol gets vaccinated’ but received your vaccination elsewhere in the meantime (e.g., as a hospital employee), please delete your data. By remaining in the system even though you have completed vaccination elsewhere, you would block the appointment for someone else who is waiting for it.
Request the access link to your personal data set again
Have you accidentally deleted or lost the email containing the link to your personal page? You can request the link again:
- visit www.tirolimpft.at
- Select the tab ‘Persönliche Seite’
- Select ‘Über E-Mail anfordern’ to receive the link by email or ‘Über SMS anfordern’ to receive it by text message
www.tirolimpft.at– Reminder and confirmation
If you are on the waiting list, you will receive a vaccination appointments by text message or email. You will also receive a reminder to confirm or reject the appointments 24 hours after receiving the email or text message. If you do not respond within 48 hours, the appointment will be considered rejected. You will be put back on the waiting list automatically and receive new appointments in the next round. The same happens if you reject the appointment.
During the further organisation of ‘Tyrol gets vaccinated’, additional occupations were added to the list. You can use your personal data page to make changes if one of the new occupations describes your situation more accurately. On the same page, you can also specify whether you are a close contact of a pregnant woman or a carer or close relative of an at-risk individual.
Is it possible to remove myself from the waiting list?
Yes. You can use your personal data page to take yourself off the waiting list. If you want to put yourself back on the list, you will need to complete the registration form again.
Why should I be vaccinated?
The stated aim is to achieve the highest possible vaccination coverage rate in the groups of people for whom vaccination is recommended. The higher the vaccination coverage, the more likely it is we can avoid severe forms of the disease and deaths. Therefore everyone who is vaccinated counts. There will be no general obligation to be vaccinated. Instead, the government is relying on people acting voluntarily and making an informed decision. Every person who wishes to be vaccinated will be able to be vaccinated depending on the vaccination group specified at the time (based on the priority and availability of vaccines).

Is the COVID-19 vaccination free of charge in Tyrol?
The COVID-19 vaccine will be available free of charge to all people in Tyrol who wish to be vaccinated.
Who can be vaccinated against COVID-19 in Tyrol? (updated: 29.1.2021)
In general, people who reside or work in Tyrol and can be vaccinated against COVID-19 from the age of 16 or 18 – depending on the vaccine. It should be noted that due to the current limited availability of vaccines, they are being given as per the priority order.
Who will not be vaccinated? (updated: 19.1.2021)
In principle, only healthy people will be vaccinated. If someone is showing symptoms of COVID-19, they cannot be vaccinated.
Children and young people under16 or 18 years of age, for whom the vaccine is not currently licensed, should not be vaccinated. As there is not yet sufficient evidence available, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should currently only be vaccinated following an individual risk-benefit assessment. Anyone suffering from an acute illness with a fever above 38.5 °C should not be vaccinated until they have recovered. However, having a cold or slightly elevated temperature (below 38.5 °C) is not a reason to postpone vaccination. You should not be vaccinated if you are hypersensitive to any vaccine ingredient. Please inform the vaccinator prior to vaccination if you have any allergies. People who have been shown to be infected with the novel coronavirus in the past and who are clinically healthy do not need to be vaccinated initially, but there is nothing to be said against vaccination. Antibody tests, antigen tests or PCR tests are not required prior to vaccination. (Source: Austrian Ministry of Social Affairs)
How many doses are needed for protection?
The first conditionally approved vaccine is the one from BioNTech/Pfizer. Two doses of the vaccine should be administered. It is recommended that you receive the second vaccine in the sixth week after the first.
The second vaccine is the one from Moderna. This vaccine should also be administered in two doses. Again, it is recommended that you receive the second vaccine in the sixth week after the first.
The AstraZeneca vaccines are administered 11–12 weeks apart.
The vaccine from Janssen requires only one dose.
How can I pre-register for a COVID-19 vaccination? (updated: 26.1.2021)
People who are willing to be vaccinated can register for a COVID-19 vaccination on this website without obligation. Following pre-registration, they will receive further information in a timely manner as soon as the vaccines are available for the corresponding age or occupational group. This will require some patience due to the current supply situation – however, all available vaccines will be used as soon as possible. The queue system is based on the Tyrolean vaccination schedule and the phases and groups of people described within it.
Note: The time at which a reservation is made does not affect a person’s position in the queue. Instead, the queuing system is determined exclusively on the basis of the vaccination strategy.
People with pre-existing conditions or high-risk patients are asked to consult their doctors in advance. If no separate list is being kept there, they can also register online without obligation via the website www.tirolimpft.at, stating they are part of an at-risk category.
Note: Please support people who cannot complete the online registration themselves – for example, those who do not have access to the internet or are not familiar with the internet. In principle, an online reservation must be made in any case – in exceptional cases, a reservation can also be made by calling the health hotline on 1450. In the interest of making the process as streamlined as possible, the public is requested to use the online registration system wherever possible and to only call the health hotline on 1450 in exceptional cases. This is also in order to avoid overloading the telephone line and to keep capacity available for those people who have no other option than to make a reservation this way, such as if there are no relatives available who could do this for them online.
Does the time at which I register have a bearing on where I am in the queue? (updated: 28.1.2021)
No. The time at which a reservation is made does not affect a person’s position in the queue. The queue system is based on the Tyrolean vaccination schedule and the phases described within it.
Is it also possible to make a non-binding reservation by telephone?(updated: 28.1.2021)
In the interest of making the process as streamlined as possible, the public is requested to use the online registration system wherever possible. Please support people who cannot complete the online registration themselves – for example, those who do not have access to the internet or are not familiar with the internet. In exceptional cases, a reservation can also be made by calling the health hotline on 1450. We would ask that people only call the health hotline on 1450 in exceptional cases – this is also in order to avoid overloading the telephone line and to keep capacity available for those people who have no other option than to make a reservation this way, such as if there are no relatives available who could do this for them online.
What do I need to do before and after being vaccinated? (updated: 18.1.2021)
If you have fainted after a previous vaccination or other injection or are prone to immediate allergies, please tell the vaccinator prior to vaccination. They can then observe you for longer after vaccination if necessary. There must be an interval of at least 14 days between other vaccinations. You do not need to take special care of yourself after the vaccination. In case of pain or fever following vaccination, pain-relieving/fever-reducing medication (e.g. paracetamol) can be taken. Your GP can advise you on this.
I currently have COVID-19. Can I be vaccinated?
In case of a Sars-CoV2 infection/positive Sars-CoV2 test, you may be vaccinated once the statutory self-isolation period of ten days has come to an end, or once you are fully recovered. (Source: Austrian Ministry of Social Affairs)
I already had a Covid infection. Should I be vaccinated? (updated: 15.4.2021)
- Have you already had a Covid infection within the last six to eight months that has been confirmed by PCR test? Due to your Covid infection, your body will have typically already produced sufficient antibodies and is thus protected. As a consequence, you do not currently need a Covid vaccination according to the most current recommendations of the National Immunization Panel. However, you will need one approximately six to eight months after your Covid infection. Also, due to your previous infection, a single vaccination is sufficient, so you will receive one vaccination date (not two) for the normally two-shot vaccines (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca).
- Did you have a Covid infection confirmed by PCR test after the first partial vaccination? In this case, you do not currently need a second partial vaccination with a normally two-shot vaccine (BioNTech/Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca) within the typically scheduled period between the two vaccinations. Instead you should get one 6-8 months after the infection. Due to the initial vaccination and the subsequent illness, your body will typically have already formed sufficient antibodies and is thus protected.
- To note your previous Covid infection on your preregistration: check "Yes, I have already had Covid-19." Then please enter the last day of your quarantine using the dd.mm.yyyy format. Please use the last day of your quarantine for this purpose. This date can be found on your notice from the health department.
I have a cold or another infection. Should I be vaccinated?
People who are acutely ill with a febrile infection should wait until they have recovered to be vaccinated, otherwise no vaccination effect or too little effect may occur.
As an allergy sufferer, can I have a COVID-19 vaccination?
People with known and common allergies – such as allergies to pollen or house dust – can and should be vaccinated. In the case of other allergies, this should be discussed in advance with the doctor treating the patient. In any case, an allergy card should be brought along to the vaccination. Not every allergy prohibits a person from receiving a COVID-19 vaccination. Information on possible allergens is contained in the technical information (composition) of the corresponding vaccine. When vaccinating people with allergies, the subsequent observation time should be extended up to 30 minutes in any case. (Source: Austrian Ministry of Social Affairs)
How safe is the vaccine?
A vaccine is only rolled out after sufficient testing. Like any other vaccine, a new vaccine designed to protect against COVID-19 is tested intensively. Each different potential vaccine goes through strictly controlled processes. There are clear legal and scientific requirements that must be met before they can be used on healthy people. Only if the risk-benefit ratio is positive will the vaccine be authorized for use. Even after being authorized for use, there is constant monitoring to detect any possible side effects and ongoing further evaluation of the risk-benefit ratio to check the effect. In the case of vaccines, and also for COVID-19 vaccines, conditional authorization is initially granted, which can be revoked or suspended at any time should production, safety or efficacy problems arise during use.

Can the COVID-19 vaccination cause a vaccination reaction, complications or side effects in general?
With vaccinations, you have to distinguish between two things. On the one hand, there is the vaccination reaction, which occurs relatively quickly and may be accompanied by fever or local pain and some temporary weakness. This is the immune system’s natural response. Then, on the other hand, there are side effects, which can mostly occur in a period lasting up to four weeks after vaccination. No specific signs have been seen in this regard with the currently licensed vaccines. With every vaccination and drug that is authorized for use, side effects can also occur later in rare cases, which then have to be documented and followed up accordingly. Furthermore, a follow-up period is set out by the drug authorities for all authorizations in order to record not only efficacy over time, but also rare side effects that may occur with a frequency of 1:10,000.
