Mandatory vaccine from 1 February in Austria

Austria is on track to become the first European Union country to introduce compulsory vaccination against COVID-19.

Yesterday, the government announced that the campaign would start on February 1 and would apply to residents over the age of 18, amid regular Saturday protests against vaccination.

The non-immunized will have the opportunity to do so by mid-March. They will then be reminded.

Finally, they will receive an invitation with an hour of vaccination.

Those who do not comply are subject to fines of up to 3,600 euros.

Parliament will vote on the government’s proposal next week. To date, 74% of Austrians have been fully vaccinated.
