What’s your take on vaccine mandates?

As COVID vaccines are rolled out, the debate around choice, health risks and effectiveness in controlling new variants continues. With over 4 million deaths reported to date and infections still rising despite lockdowns, is there a strong case for mandatory vaccination?
Vaccination enables access to freedom, return to work, travel, socialise and use of leisure facilities. However, for those who oppose or are hesitant about receiving the vaccine, is it really effective to offer incentives to boost vaccine uptake?
We asked 1,863 people from our global panel, taken from nationally representative samples from the United Kingdom, United States, Australia and New Zealand, about their views on COVID vaccine mandates. This is what we discovered:
Over half of people in all 4 countries agree that workplaces should make COVID vaccination mandatory before allowing employees on the premises.
More than half of people in all 4 countries also agree that the COVID vaccinations should also be mandatory before entering public places including restaurants, gyms and sporting grounds.
About a quarter of Americans, Aussies and Brits think the COVID vaccine should be mandatory for all travel outside of their city, compared to 20% of Kiwis.
Almost 75% of Brits do not think people should be incentivised to get a COVID vaccination, compared to Kiwis (62%), Americans (59%) and Aussies (57%).
Most people in New Zealand (72%), the UK (66%) and Australia (65%) think their governments are right to make decisions to enforce lockdown, restrict movements and determine vaccination rules compared to just half in the US.
