The Austrian government is developing a bill that provides for fines for residents of the country who refuse to be vaccinated. About it writes Kronen newspaper.
Those who do not want to be vaccinated will have to pay a fine of € 3.6 thousand. For refusing to pay a fine, a person can go to prison for four months. A fine of € 7.2 thousand will threaten those who ignore two notifications from the authorities about the need to vaccinate.
The fines do not apply to people for whom there is a risk to life and health due to vaccinations, as well as pregnant women and adolescents under 12 years of age.
The bill is due on December 6th. It must be approved by both houses of the Austrian parliament. Earlier, the country’s authorities, against the backdrop of an increase in the incidence of coronavirus, announced compulsory vaccination, which will begin in February 2022.
This decision caused outrage among the citizens of the country. On November 20, about 40 thousand people went to a rally in Vienna against vaccination against COVID-19. Most of the protesters behaved peacefully, but in the evening, scuffles began and the police were pelted with beer cans and plastic bottles, in response the police used tear gas. By message ORF TV channel, many demonstrators attached yellow stars with the words “not vaccinated” to their clothes, in the crowd there were posters “This is how 1938 began” or “Schallenberg – Mengele”. Since 1938, Austria has been part of Nazi Germany. Physician Josef Mengele conducted medical experiments on the prisoners of the Auschwitz concentration camp, including injections of gasoline into the heart.
