Mandatory vaccination

New mandatory vaccination law!

As of February 1, there is to be a general obligation to vaccinate in Austria. Those who do not get vaccinated will have to pay heavy fines.

In addition to a lockdown for everyone, the federal and state governments have also agreed on a general vaccination requirement. This makes Austria a pioneer in the EU. A draft law is to be drawn up with the social partners in the next few weeks. Compulsory vaccination is to apply from February 1, 2022.

In addition, Health Minister Mückstein announced a vaccination offensive. This includes:

Everyone is aware that “enormous things” are being asked of those vaccinated, said Schallenberg i the press conference. These must now take the restrictions on themselves, “because too much have shown themselves unsolidary”. On compulsory vaccination, he noted that one must face the realities here. “We have too many political forces in this country that are vehemently fighting against it,” saying this is an “assassination attempt on our health care system.” The consequences, he said, are overcrowded intensive care units and enormous human suffering.

There will be administrative penalties for violations of the vaccination requirement, details of which are still being worked out, Schallenberg said. In any case, there will be exceptions for all those who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons.
