Podolski, who has scored all of Germany's three goals at the tournament, suffered a minor ankle injury in Thursday's 2-1 defeat against Croatia.
But Flick said the Bayern Munich forward has recovered and is ready to play in Monday's match in Vienna where Germany require a draw to secure a place in the quarter-finals from group B.
Flick also confirmed that Podolski's teammate Philipp Lahm can play against Austria while a third Munich player, Marcell Jansen, will be sidelined with a shoulder injury.
However, Jansen was not expected to play after a poor showing against Croatia, dpa reported.
