Mandatory vaccination has been abolished in Austria

The new Austrian Minister of Health Johannes Rauch and the Minister of Constitutional Affairs Karolina Edstadler announced at a press conference that based on a report submitted yesterday by the Commission on the renewal of compulsory vaccination, the Austrian government has decided to temporarily abolish compulsory vaccination against COVID-19.

The law, which runs until the end of January 2024, provides for fines for unvaccinated citizens living in Austria from 15 March. But at the same time, it says that a commission set up under the Federal Chancellor should periodically assess the epidemic situation in the country and propose to the government a temporary repeal of the law, if appropriate.

According to Carolina Edstadler, the law allows the government to take action depending on the situation at the time.
