Austria’s government said on Thursday it was introducing a national lottery to encourage holdouts to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, Report informs, citing Reuters.

“What is there to win in the vaccination lottery? Vouchers!” Chancellor Karl Nehammer told a news conference with the leader of the opposition Social Democrats, Pamela Rendi-Wagner, with whom the measure was negotiated.

Nehammer said members of the public, whether already vaccinated or not, would get a ticket for each shot they have had – three tickets in total for those who have had their booster shot.

Every tenth ticket would win a 500 euro ($568) gift voucher, Nehammer said, without specifying what the vouchers were for.

The lower house of parliament is due to pass a bill later on Thursday making vaccines compulsory for all adults in Austria, with initial fines of 600 euros, rising to up to 3,600 euros if the fine is challenged unsuccessfully.
