Over half of adults support compulsory workplace vaccination, survey finds
DATE: 13 December 2021
A recent survey shows that half of the adults polled support compulsory workplace Covid-19 vaccination and a vaccine passport, while approval drops significantly by vaccination status and levels of vaccine hesitancy.
The findings are contained in research by the Centre for Social Change, University of Johannesburg (UJ), in collaboration with the Developmental, Ethical and Capable State research division of the Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC).
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced last month that government has set up a task team that will undertake broad consultations on making vaccination mandatory for specific activities and locations.
