Would COVID-19 vaccination be made compulsory for people in some jobs !

New Zealand recently fired customs and border officials after they refused vaccines.

Compulsory COVID vaccination -for people in some jobs- is not official policy in UK or USA yet.

“Italy has become the first country in Europe to make COVID vaccination compulsory for healthcare workers”

It does look like that COVID-19 vaccination would be made compulsory for people in some jobs !

Any third wave, later year, in UK may push the government in making COVID vaccination mandatory for health workers and some other key workers.
