JUST IN - Compulsory vaccination in #Austria starts at the beginning of February for all citizens over 18, fines up to a maximum total of 3,600 euros from mid-March.
Chancellor Nehammer claims vaccination is "the best guarantee to live in freedom," at a press conference. This final draft law for compulsory vaccination will be sent to Austria's National Council next week.
Pregnant women, recently recovered persons, and persons who cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons are exempt from compulsory vaccination. No prison penalties. Thus, the more wealthy can "buy their way out."
