Corona Virus: The Czech Minister proposes compulsory vaccinations for certain groups of people since March 2022

Compulsory coronavirus vaccination for selected professions and people over 60 in the Czech Republic will be proposed by the local health ministry from March 1, 2022. The head of the health ministry in resignation, Adam Wojciech, said this online press conference on Monday informs the Novinky portal .cz.

The current minister clarified that compulsory vaccination in the Czech Republic should apply to health workers, social workers, firefighters, police officers, soldiers and the prison service.

The Czech government also decided on Monday that vaccinated people will have to undergo a PCR test for the presence of coronavirus after new contact with infected people (for example at home). They should be tested on the fifth to seventh day after contact. However, they will not have to go into quarantine while waiting for the result of this test.

“If the test result is negative, there is no need for further treatment,” Vojtek said, adding that in the days before the test and before receiving the result, people should monitor their health and wear a respirator.

Public health insurance will cover polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests for contacts of infected people. A PCR test request will be issued by regional hygiene stations.

The next government of the Total-Pirate-Stan alliance last week proposed testing vaccinated people who have come into contact with infected people. To date, this obligation has not been applied to them, which many experts have criticized.
