ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Businesses considering mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policies | 7.30” – below is their description.

Australia’s vaccination program will open up to everyone aged over 16 from the end of this month.

Other than high-risk industries such as aged care and border control, the Federal Government’s position is that immunisation is to be voluntary. But that’s causing issues for some businesses, which want to protect their workplaces from the virus.

Angelique Donnellan reports.
