OPINION: Make the vaccine compulsory Opinion by News Of The Area - Modern Media - December 1, 2021 DEAR News Of The Area, IT is fairly well accepted that the number one way to prevent Covid-19 spread is for everyone to be sufficiently vaccinated against the virus. At present this means double vaccination. The problem is getting complete vaccination closer to 100% of the population. The answer of course is to make vaccination compulsory by law. This proposed legislation (national not state by state) should apply to everyone except for medical reasons. I.e you must have written proof from your GP or other medical source that you are exempted. This new law of course means that nobody is exempt from vaccinations for any other reason such as political or religious. Okay Federal Government – pass this new law ASAP so that we can get back to a normal life. Regards, Lindsay MOULDEN, Coffs Harbour.
