CFRA Live – What are the ethical challenges of issuing mandatory vaccinations?


On Friday, we received big news from the Canadian government, and this news might be disappointing for those who are opposed to taking the COVID-19 vaccine. These vaccines will soon be mandatory for federal workers. If you travel by train or airplane, you will need to be fully-vaccinated. The same game plan applies for any cruise ship excursions. The hope is that municipal workers, provincial workers, and big companies will follow suit. Maxwell Smith, a bioethicist, joins Andrew Pinsent on CFRA Live to break down the ethics of issuing mandatory vaccinations.
