The Czech government approved on Friday offering two days of additional vacation to state employees who get vaccinated against COVID-19 as a way to spur vaccination effort, Prime Minister Andrej Babis said on Friday.

The European Union country of 10.7 million reported 10.19 million doses of vaccines given as of Thursday, with 4.74 million people fully vaccinated.

“The aim is to have maximum vaccination, to protect ourselves against infection from abroad,” Babis said. “This is the main task: inoculate, inoculate, inoculate.”
