In individual cases, private entrepreneurs have already lured employees with a bonus to get vaccinated. But that did not have a great effect, said Federal Chancellor Karl Nehammer and Health Minister Wolfgang Mückstein on the sidelines of the government press conference on the new Corona rules, so that there will be no premium regulation in Austria for the time being.
Such a measure was originally called for by the SPÖ and the government was ready to discuss it – should it deliver results. However, this is now clearly doubted. Earlier studies have shown that unvaccinated people do not react very positively to financial incentives to vaccinate.
