VIENNA (LifeSiteNews) — The Austrian government wants to vaccinate 90% of the country’s population with a fourth COVID jab this fall.  

General Rudolf Striedinger, chief of staff for the Austrian secretary of defense and co-leader of the COVID crisis coordination effort, argued for the necessity of a fourth jab at today’s press conference. 

“We know that in order to make it through the next fall and winter without issue, we need to achieve a 90% vaccination rate for the whole population,” Striedinger stated. 

The general added that thinking of ways “to motivate” the Austrian people to achieve  immunization of 90% of the population by next fall was “a difficult task” and the government will have to consider “various options.” 

 

One option adopted by the Austrian government to “motivate” the population to get vaccinated against COVID-19 was the imposition of a vaccination mandate with fines as high as 3,600 euros($4,108)  for those who refuse the inoculations.  

Speaking first to vaccinated Austrians, Striedinger announced that “all those who are already triple-vaccinated will in all likelihood need a booster shot in September before the arrival of the cold weather.” 

Striedinger also addressed the unvaccinated, saying that “all those who are not vaccinated, and who were lucky enough to not come into contact with the virus, will have to start getting immunized now.” 

He insisted that unvaccinated Austrians must get their first dose now to give them enough time before September to get the so-called “full-protection” allegedly provided by the four shots of the COVID-19 vaccine. Striedinger said this process will take 6 months. Practically speaking, this would mean one vaccination every two months for people who so far have not received a single dose.  

Striedinger’s announcement comes as a Wednesday COVID summit introduced plans to lift some of Austria’s COVID restrictions in February and March.  

For example, the so-called 2G rule, which requires people to present proof of vaccination or recovery from COVID before entering restaurants, hotels, sport venues, and other premises is to be lifted this Saturday, February 19 and replaced by the less strict 3G rule. 

The 3G rule holds that unvaccinated people who have never contracted the coronavirus will again have access to these venues on the condition that they present a negative COVID test upon entering.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) commits genocide (the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region), has committed forced abortions (the one-child policy), allowed COVID to be spread across the world with their lies, allows dangerous sweatshops to operate, and suppresses their people's freedoms and faith (think of Hong Kong and, separately, the persecution of Christians, Muslims and member of Falun Gong).

The CCP is an evil organization and needs to be stopped!

Please SIGN and pledge to try to BUY LOCAL, rather than give your hard-earned money to the lying, COVID-spreading, genocidal, abortion-forcing, freedom-suppressing Chinese Communist Party.

With the Beijing Olympics now underway, the CCP is only interested in one thing: gaining the respect and admiration of the rest of the world.

But, the CCP is only deserving of disgrace and rebuke, not respect or admiration.

So, we must raise our voices against their shameful lies, murders and reign of tyranny. And, we must also do what can to hit them where it hurts -- in the pocketbook!

Please SIGN and pledge to try to BUY LOCAL, rather than give your hard-earned money to the lying, genocidal, abortion-forcing, freedom-suppressing Chinese Communist Party.

Pledging to buy local, or to buying products from anywhere but China, might present a challenge as everyone will have to make a concerted effort to look at the labels of their purchases, and maybe pay a little more for a product made outside China.

But, this is something which every man, woman and child can do to protest the manifest evil which the Chinese Communist Party, as distinct from the Chinese people, is responsible for.

Please SIGN and pledge to try to BUY LOCAL, rather than give your hard-earned money to the lying, genocidal, abortion-forcing, freedom-suppressing Chinese Communist Party.

Is Main Street America or High Street Europe, with their lockdowns, censorship, and mandates looking more and more like China because we have allowed ourselves to become addicted to communist labor?

Have we allowed cheap goods to take over liberty and justice?

This is not a partisan issue, this is about a way of life that ensures a dignified future for workers around the world versus a totalitarian communist system that floods the world with cheap goods and evil ideology…

It's time we put our money where our mouth is, and buy local rather than give our money to the CCP.

Thank you for SIGNING this pledge to try to BUY LOCAL, or at least try to purchase products not made in China. After signing, please consider SHARING with your like-minded friends, family, parishioners and colleagues.

After March 5, though, even the 3G rule will be dropped. That day has been coined Austria’s “Freedom Day,” as broader relaxations of COVID rules will come into effect then. There will no longer be either a 2G or a 3G rule in restaurants, shopping centers, and the workplace. The midnight curfew will end.  

Some mask mandates will also be abolished on March 5. Wearing an FFP2 mask will no longer be compulsory in all indoors spaces: only in food retail stores, pharmacies, nursing homes, and public transport.  

But although many of the restrictions will be lifted on “Freedom Day,” the infamous mandatory vaccination policy will continue. 

This means that though unvaccinated Austrians will again have access to venues they were previously barred from, they will still risk having to pay up to 3,600 euros($4,108) every 3 months if they fail to be “fully vaccinated.” And, as of this September, that means a fourth dose.
