Government to go ahead with move from February after consulting scientists and legal experts
Austria is pushing ahead with plans to make vaccination against Covid-19 mandatory among its wider population from February, the country’s coalition government has announced after consulting scientists and legal experts.
“We didn’t want a vaccine mandate, let me make that explicit,” the minister for EU and constitutional affairs, Karoline Edtstadler, said. “But 20 months on from the start of the pandemic we are in a situation that is dramatic if you look at intensive care units at hospitals.”
