COVID-19 vaccination status: 43% of pupils and 84% of teachers were already fully immunised at the end of September
More than two in five of the approximately 593 000 pupils in school year 2021/22 age 12 and older have an upright vaccination against COVID-19 as of 30 September 2021. Another 6% had received partial vaccination by that date. The proportion of 20- to 64-year-old teachers with full immunisation coverage is 84% compared to 71% for the entire labour force. "Fully immunised" means people who have received all of the vaccine doses necessary for full immunisation, as well as those who have recovered with at least one vaccination. Statistics Austria determined the results of the vaccination status of the pupils for the first time on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research.
In September 2021, the inflation rate was 3.3% (August 2021: 3.2%). Expenditures for transport (+9.4% compared to September 2020) proved to be the most important price driver, followed by expenditures for housing, water and energy (+3.9%).
