ABSTRACT. The purpose of this study was to empirically examine whether it would be ethically problematic to introduce mandatory vaccination for COVID-19. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from Ada Lovelace Institute, Censuswide, Ipsos, Morning Consult, Promoleaf, The Serco Institute, Survation, and Verywell, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding when mandatory vaccination is most reasonable. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.

Keywords: ethics; COVID-19; mandatory vaccination; health; autonomy; freedom
