Police in Austria have begun carrying out routine checks on commuters to ensure compliance with a nationwide “lockdown for the unvaccinated”, as the Alpine country tries to get on top of one of the most rapidly rising infection rates in Europe.
The restrictions, which came into effect on Monday morning, will affect almost 2 million Austrian citizens aged 12 and older who have so far declined to get a jab against Covid-19. The 356,000 people who have been vaccinated only once can be released from lockdown if they show a negative PCR test.
Those who are found to be in breach of the rules face fines between €500 and €3,600.
“It can happen any time and anywhere,” the interior minister, Karl Nehammer of the Austrian People’s party, said of the police checks. “Every citizen has to expect to be checked.”
But a long list of exceptions has led critics to warn that the partial lockdown will be difficult to enforce: unvaccinated people will still be able to go to work with a negative test result, do essential shopping and outdoor physical exercise, meet their partner or other select individuals, and “satisfy their basic religious needs”.
Schoolchildren, who are tested regularly, are also exempt from the lockdown.
The measures, details of which were announced on Sunday by the chancellor, Alexander Schallenberg, are provisionally designed to last for 10 days, though the government said it would discuss potential further restrictions on Wednesday, such as a nighttime curfew that would also apply to those who have been vaccinated.
“My aim is very clear: to get the unvaccinated to get vaccinated, not to lock up the unvaccinated,”Schallenberg told ORF radio station.
The week before the new restrictions came into place, almost 130,000 people in Austria chose to be vaccinated for the first time, the highest weekly number recorded since the second week of July.
The far-right Freedom party has said it will seek legal action against the lockdown measures and announced plans to organise a protest in Vienna on Saturday.

Nice double-speak! At this point there is only one option. Protests won’t cut it, no, not at all. POLICE STATE OPERATIVE: Papers, peasant! ONLY VALID REPLY AT THIS STAGE: Your head, tyrant. Notably Portugal leading the pack is listed at 92% injected. “Anyone who believes the prophetic mission of Fatima is fulfilled is deceiving himself.” -Don’t quit Pope Benedict!! Hermeneutics of continuity are ABOLISHED like Prussia by Bergoglio and nations will be annihilated.

New info–Every citizen to be injected with a little profit for the Vanguard Group’s (VG) criminal cartel of clients? Although Catherine Austin Fitts has mentioned the VG prior to my finding this video. It’s the first time I’ve seen information that squarely put the organization at the top as the worldwide ruler of investments where NO CLIENT can be identified, as you know. Guess who the clients are? Can you say the usual suspects? Of course you can! Take a look and download the PDF for distribution, especially if you speak a language other than English and can provide a… Read more »
What kind of moron is running these countries. The vaccine doesn’t work and this is FACT but the solution is to continue to vaccinate people. This is NOT about health and instead of refusing to comply the sheeple are lining up for their journey to death. I could care less if I ever go to another restaurant, travel, shop again. None of this is worth my life.
