Austria has imposed certain restrictions that apply to unvaccinated people below 12 years.Many European countries have started to reimpose restrictions as the number of new coronavirus infections is rising.

The Chancellor of Austria, Alexander Schallenberg, announced lockdown measures for those not fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The cases have been surging recently and putting strain on intensive-care units. Almost 65 percent of the population is fully immunized in Austria, and many are skeptical about getting the jab.
