The mandatory vaccination against Covid-19 in Austria will be valid from the age of 14, Health Minister Wolfgang Mukstein said in a press conference today.
The measure needs approval by Parliament
The measure, which takes effect on February 1st, also includes a fine of 3,600 euros, Mukstein said, detailing the plan, which must be approved by parliament but, according to the government, has the support of two opposition parties. which suggests that it will comfortably secure the majority.
It should be noted that the unvaccinated in Austria will remain in lockdown even after the lifting of the quarantine measure for the general population on Sunday, as confirmed the day before yesterday by Chancellor Carl Nehamer, a day after taking office.
