Ethox Seminar - Ethics of mandatory vaccination: Lessons and outstanding questions from COVID-19
The suboptimal uptake of COVID-19 vaccines in many parts of the world prompted unprecedented public debate concerning the ethics of mandatory vaccination. It is imperative we learn lessons from this debate so we are better positioned to navigate policy proposals for mandatory vaccination in the future. Drawing on the presenter’s scholarship and role providing policy advice during COVID-19, including as the lead author of the World Health Organization’s policy brief on the ethics of mandatory vaccination for COVID-19, this seminar will distill key lessons and identify outstanding questions and challenges the ethics community ought to prioritize to inform future consideration of vaccine mandates.

This will be a hybrid seminar in the BDI and on Zoom.
