Austria's mandatory vaccinations to begin next month
Austria will become the first European country to make vaccination compulsory for adults in February, Chancellor Karl Nehammer said, acknowledging that it was a "sensitive topic".
Nehammer, a conservative who took office in December, said those who didn't comply would face a hefty fine.
To date 71.5 percent of eligible Austrian residents have had their jabs — several percentage points below many of the country's EU neighbours.
Saturday saw some 27,000 people demonstrate in Vienna against the measure which opponents dub an attack on personal freedoms.
