Should the COVID-19 vaccine be mandatory?
With Jamaica having one of the lowest COVID-19 vaccination rates in the Caribbean, we asked our followers if they believe the Government should make the jab mandatory.
It should be required for entering all government buildings and public schools. All civil servants should be vaccinated or take unpaid leave.
No! No gov’t nuh own anyone body.
– Wayne Thompson
Yes, during a pandemic, the government has the right to make decisions on matters that affect the entire population.
– Tasha Williams
No, people should have choices. Even Jesus gives us choices.
– Paulette Stephenson
Yes, so we can get back to some normality.
Shouldn’t be. My body, my choice.
There has to be some freedom of choice. People who work in certain professions should be strongly encouraged but ultimately it should be a matter of choice.
I for one don’t think that it should be mandatory.
Mandatory for tourism as well.
Fi why? Nobody a force ntn pon Mr. Holness? My body, my choice. Simple as dhat.
Absolutely not! Let each individual choose for his or her self.
All who took the vaccine saying yes cause they want company. Not that they have actual reasons. Just the company.
One. Mi tired fi see this… 2. This shouldn’t even up for discussion because there’s no way the vaccine should be mandatory.
If u take the jab n ur safe y u concern on who does not want to?
Nope. Ppl have a right to say no to things they are not comfortable with!
If God designed human with free choice who is man to change that?
You can lead the horse to water, you can’t mek him drink.
Mandatory no ... But give people some time to get vaccinated who wants to get vaccinated then open back the country and operate as normal. If a dirt, a dirt. We can’t continue to hold people hostage due to what will be a disease that will become endemic.
