4, COVID-19 vaccine news summary

Yesterday, the Czech government announced the abolition of mandatory vaccines for certain professionals such as doctors, police officers and citizens over 60 years of age, established by the previous government to avoid “deepening fissures” in society.

And today, Austria will become the first European country to make the vaccine mandatory. Austria is close to introducing a universal vaccine mandate after the lower house of parliament voted overwhelmingly by 137 votes to 33. The law will enter into force on February 1. Vaccine refusers will face fines of up to 3,600 euros from mid-March. Austria’s vaccination rates are already as high as 75 percent, with booster shots reaching 47 percent. In addition, the government will invest €1.4 billion in forcing unvaccinated people to be vaccinated.

According to the latest research, the effect of booster shots is reduced by half after two months, so the recommended interval for booster shots has now been shortened to 3 months. The Austrian vaccine order is expected to last until January 2024. Assuming a mandatory booster shot every three months, four shots per year, eight shots over two years. Anyway, these vaccines are “safe and effective”, according to the mainstream media, so it’s okay to get more of them, right? This outrageous idea has not gone down well with ordinary Austrians. Since November, when the authorities announced their intention to introduce this vaccine mandatory, there have been regular protests in the capital Vienna, some of them numbering more than 40,000 people.

Today, New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and the Capital Territory have shortened the waiting period for booster shots to 3 months.

British Prime Minister Johnson announced today that he will ease restrictions, end mandatory vaccine passports in England, and no longer force people to wear masks anywhere, including classrooms.

Australia has started a mass “vaccination” of children aged 5-11 this month. In contrast, in the UK, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI) only recommends vaccination for children at high clinical risk or who live with patients with immunodeficiency. And some British medical experts have raised concerns about the legality of vaccinating children to protect adults against a very mild disease for children.

A comparison of those as mentioned above widely divergent and contradictory vaccine policies in various countries shows that a shift in vaccine policy has already begun in some countries. The public will undoubtedly punish those governments that go down the wrong path.
