People In Austria Who Are Not Vaccinated Against Covid-19 Can Be Fined Up To €3,600 Under New Laws

People in Austria who’re not vaccinated against Covid-19 can be fined up to 3,600 euro, under new laws.

The alpine nation has introduced mandatory vaccination for all adults – the first EU state to do so.

Tom Douglas reports for RedFM News:

“Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen signed this rule into law which will see unvaccinated people face fines beginning at 600 euro up to four times a year.

There are some exemptions though, pregnant people and those with health reasons not to get jabbed along with people who’ve had a positive PCR test in the last 180 days aren’t included.

Austria’s level of vaccination isn’t as high as Ireland’s – the landlocked country is at about 73 percent according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

That is higher than the EU average but hasn’t eased the concerns of health officials and political leaders there.

Meanwhile Germany is likely to hold a vote on a similar mandate late next month.”
