British Health Officials Suggest COVID-19 Vaccine Could Be Mandatory Tyler Durden Sat, 05/23/2020 – 08:10 Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News, The British health secretary Matt Hancock said during a briefing that he hopes 'everybody would have the vaccine', if and when a coronavirus shot is rolled out, and did not rule out making it mandatory for every citizen.
“I would hope given the scale of this crisis and given the overwhelming need for us to get through this and to get the country back on its feet and the very positive impact that a vaccine would have that everybody would have the vaccine.” Hancock said.
Hancock has previously strenuously criticised anti-vaccination campaigners.
Last year he announced that the UK Government was “looking very seriously” at instituting compulsory vaccinations for state school pupils.
In addition, Canada's current Chief Public Health Officer appeared in a recently resurfaced 2010 documentary in which she advocated using mandatory “tracking bracelets” for people who refuse to take a vaccine after a virus outbreak.
