Thousands Rally in Prague Against Vaccination Mandate

'Prague's protest followed similar but smaller demonstrations in several Czech cities on Saturday...'

(Headline USA) Thousands of people marched through the Czech Republic’s capital this weekend to protest against compulsory COVID-19 vaccination for certain groups and professions.

The protesters gathered at Wenceslas Square in central Prague, questioning the effectiveness of the current vaccines and reject the vaccination of children before marching through the capital, chanting “Freedom, freedom.”

The order is due to take effect in March, but it still might end up being overturned.

Prime Minister Andrej Babis’ administration was replaced later in December by a new government formed by five parties that won October’s parliamentary election, led by Prime Minister Petr Fiala.

The new administration opposed a vaccination mandate for older people and was ready to cancel it, but didn’t rule out it might still be compulsory for some, depending on the development of the pandemic. The government should announce its decision about it by the middle of February.

The omicron variant of the coronavirus was expected by health authorities to become dominant in the country next week.
