Throughout the week, the issue has been the subject of heated debates in Parliament but also among the population. The issue deeply divides the country, where about 71.5% of people have completed the vaccination schedule, a low figure compared to other Western countries. “It is a sensitive project” but “in accordance with the Constitution,” insisted Nehammer. An “adaptation phase” is planned for those most reluctant to puncture “until mid-March,” he added. “Afterwards, controls will be carried out” and not being vaccinated will constitute a “crime” with financial “penalties” of between 600 and 3,600 euros ($685 and $4,100), if persisted. On Saturday, some 27,000 people demonstrated in the capital Austrian opposition to the measure, alleging that it goes against individual freedoms. The Austrian government has a large majority in Parliament: in addition to the conservatives and environmentalists, the leaders of the Social Democratic and Liberal parties support the text. Only the extreme right opposes.bg/abx/es/pc ———————————— ————————- French Parliament approves bill for vaccination passParis, Jan 16, 2022 (AFP) – After weeks of debate, Parliament The French definitively adopted on Sunday the controversial bill that replaces the current health passport with a vaccination pass from the age of 16. The text was approved by 215 votes in favor, 58 against and 7 abstentions. The socialist deputies (opposition) plan to refer the matter to the Constitutional Council so that “fundamental freedoms” are respected, which will delay the promulgation of the bill for a few days. The Government wants the document to enter into force as soon as possible before the increase in cases due to the omicron variant. With an average of 300,000 infections per day in the last week, the Executive hopes to launch the vaccination pass around January 20. The vaccination pass will prevent the unvaccinated from accessing several spaces such as trains, restaurants or cinemas. That is to say: it will only work with a complete immunization scheme, except to access health services. The current pass, on the other hand, included the possibility of presenting a negative test for covid-19 or having recently overcome the disease. The new document will only be required from the age of 16, while those under 12 to 15 years of age will continue to be asked for the current health pass. The implementation of the vaccination pass was scheduled for January 15, but was delayed due to to the disagreements of the deputies on the versions of the norm. The declarations of the president Emmanuel Macron (liberal) at the beginning of January also contributed to this, that he wanted to “annoy until the end” the unvaccinated. His words unleashed a storm in the political class and contributed to suspending parliamentary debate on the bill.reb/ib/cal/def/mm/cls/sag/mb
