Mandatory vaccines: Ethics, legality and constitutionality around compulsory inoculation - Prof Dhai
Freelance healthcare journalist Chris Bateman is joined by Professor Ames Dhai, the founder and former director of the Steve Biko Centre for Bioethics at the Wits Faculty of Health Sciences. What's more, Dhai also serves as the vice-chair on the Ministerial Advisory Committee for Covid-19 vaccines. She joined BizNews to discuss Covid-19 vaccination and mandatory inoculation in South Africa. Dhai says that, "if we had to go [with] mandatory vaccination - and we pulled from constitutional principles - looking at limiting one's right to autonomy and autonomous decision making, we would need to ask, 'what would be the purpose of the limitation?'
