Currently, 70 percent of the total Austrian population count as at least partially immunized. According to Health Minister Mückstein, the incentive systems for the corona vaccination have shown an effect. But this is not enough: “From an epidemiological point of view, we know that this is not enough. We have to do everything possible to protect ourselves against impending waves of infections as well as possible. To do this, we have to increase the vaccination rate properly.” This includes the compulsory vaccination:

“That is why we have decided to introduce a general compulsory vaccination. This is a far-reaching measure and it is therefore extremely important to us to put this law on a broad basis and to involve as many different stakeholders as possible in the process.”

Constitutional Minister Karoline Edtstadler is aware that the “introduction of the general compulsory vaccination of course interferes with fundamental rights”, but that it is “a necessary and justified step in view of the dramatic situation”.

“Vaccination is the way out of a pandemic”

ÖVP club chairman August Wöginger also sees the vaccination as the only “way out of the pandemic”. The compulsory vaccination has therefore become necessary “in order to achieve a sufficient degree of immunization in the population and it is an important step so that we can regain our freedom. We must work on this together.”

For the Greens’ chairwoman, Sigi Maurer, it is important to achieve “broad acceptance and recognition of the mandatory vaccination”. “For this purpose, a comprehensive assessment and a participation process are starting. The Green Club in Parliament is behind this measure. As with climate protection, we listen to science in fighting pandemics. And their voice is clear: the vaccination works. The vaccination protects.”
