Austria announces the abolition of compulsory vaccination against Corona

Today, Thursday, Austrian Health Minister Johannes Rauch announced in Vienna that compulsory vaccination against Corona will be canceled in the country.

The Austrian minister said: "Compulsory vaccination does not push anyone to receive the vaccination."

Rauch explained that due to the Omicron strain, the vaccination protection is currently lower than that of the Delta strain, which was still dominant when the move (compulsory vaccination research) was announced last November.

It is noteworthy that the compulsory vaccination took effect in Austria last February, and was supported by all parliamentary parties there, except for the right-wing Austrian Freedom Party.

Austria was a leading country in imposing compulsory vaccination, while there were age-specific regulations in other European Union countries.
