Mandatory Vaccinations: Why We Are Opposed

13 September 2021

Here’s why we are opposed to mandatory vaccination – NEASA CE, Gerhard Papenfus, on CNBC Africa, 9 September 2021. NEASA’s view in summary: the decision to be vaccinated or not remains the prerogative of each individual; an employee should, under no circumstances, be forced to make a choice between an infringement of his right to bodily integrity and retaining his livelihood; the Consolidated Direction on Occupational Health and Safety Measures in Certain Workplaces (“the Directive”), is an infringement on the individual’s constitutional rights; such an infringement is not justifiable; and dismissal under these circumstances creates a massive evidentiary burden for employers.
