In order to be protected, you need to receive two shots of the vaccine with an interval of at least 2 weeks between them, prior to your trip to Austria.

You will NOT BE ADMITTED to peacecamp if you do not provide evidence that you have been vaccinated (2 shots) or a statement from your parents saying that they are not interested in you being vaccinated.
