Can mandatory vaccination against Covid-19 be justified?

December 15th, 2021

One should believe that the decision about vaccination should be completely voluntary, but the enforcement of Covid-19 vaccination requirement in Austria is an example that this is not always the case.

Denmark is one of the countries with the highest number of vaccinated against Coronavirus, and it is not to be expected that the vaccination will be mandatory for Danish citizens for now although the number of infected with Coronavirus is very high.

However, a new survey conducted by Userneeds for Business Danmark reveals that the majority of working people in Denmark support the requirement by the companies for the introduction of mandatory vaccines.

More specifically, the survey shows that as much as 71 percent of the survey participants (1240) think that it’s ok that the companies make Covid-19 vaccine mandatory for their employees in order to create the safe working environment for everyone.

Moreover, the results show that one third of the survey participants, corresponding to 34 percent, fear of getting infected while they are at work even though they are fully vaccinated.

The importance of feeling safe in the workplace in Denmark is emphasized by the enforcement of a new law by Danish Government, which gives the right to the employers to require a valid Corona pass from their employees.
