Austria has decided to suspend its mandate for compulsory Covid-19 vaccinations for over-18s, days before it was due to start enforcing it.
It was the first EU country to adopt the measure.
The government now says it considers it disproportionate to the threat posed by the Omicron variant.
Health Minister Johannes Rauch said the decision would be reviewed again in three months, and could be reintroduced if a new variant made it necessary.
"There are many convincing arguments at the moment that this infringement of fundamental rights is not justified," she said.
The mandate was introduced partly because of Austria's relatively low vaccination rate - 70% of Austria's 8.9 million people are double-vaccinated and 54% have also had a booster.
