68 lawmakers voted in favor of the proposed changes, three were against and seven abstained.

The law failed to pass during the first reading after members of the opposition failed to register for the vote.

Under the adopted law, 100 euro payments will be paid to pensioners aged 75 and over who got vaccinated from September until December, as well as to those who get booster jabs until April. Pensioners will receive the payments with their pensions in December and April.
