Mandating covid19 vaccines? Nonsense proposals

1 Feb

Mandatory vaccination against covid19 of health care workers is proposed because there are vaccines that might reduce the transmission of the virus, SARS-CoV-2, and might  protect both the health workforce and patients.
The question that arises is scientific and ethical because of the fact that we do not yet know whether the vaccine will prevent transmission (and thus produce herd immunity).
Will the vaccine protect only those who get vaccinated?
The unknowns of how the vaccine covid19 affects transmission makes the possibility of achieving herd immunity through vaccination uncertain.
It lacks logic and scientific and ethical foundation to demand compulsory covid19 vaccination in general and in specific cases as health care workers in health centres/hospitals, nursing homes and other health/social care centres. The proposals for mandating covid19 vaccines are unethical.
