Vaccine, then employment – News online

As of September 1, the Austrian province of Lower Austria introduces the obligation to vaccinate for the admission of new employees to provincial institutions.

– The obligation to vaccinate will apply to all areas, and not only to health workers or teachers. Everyone who will be admitted to the provincial service will have to be vaccinated or commit to maintaining the protection of the immune system – the governor of Lower Austria, Johanna Mikl-Leitner, explained.

Only persons who cannot be vaccinated due to health reasons are exempted from that obligation.

As an explanation for this measure, Mikl-Leitner stated that the province wants to protect its employees, that it wants them to be able to perform their duty and, thirdly, to protect the rest of the population. In mid-July, Lower Austria made a decision on mandatory vaccination for all new healthcare employees. Some other provinces have taken similar steps. Thus, Vienna has always been obliged to vaccinate all new employees in the field of health and social protection, and since the fall, this obligation has been extended to new employees in kindergartens.

As of August 1, the Province of Styria has been applying the favor of the vaccinated during admission to the provincial service.

Immunization without notification

The authorities of the city of Vienna want to encourage the vaccination of the population with a new measure. From Monday to Sunday, between 7.00 and 19.00, citizens will be vaccinated at the Austria Center without prior registration and with only one personal document. The Biontek-Pfizer and Moderna vaccine can be given to people over 12 years of age, and Astrazeneca and Johnson & Johnson all over 18 years of age.
