Czechs give extra holiday to vaccinated civil servants

July 31, 2021

Prague: The Czech government on Friday approved a proposal to give civil servants who get Covid-19 vaccines an extra two days of holiday.

"I have not found other ways of motivating people to get vaccinated. Some people might criticise this as being unfair but I think it’s fair," said Prime Minister Andrej Babis. The billionaire politician, whose Agrofert food, chemicals and media holding employs thousands of people, also called on private businesses to follow the government’s example.
