Ethical and Legal Aspects of COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates in the WHO Europe Region

The Institute of Biomedical Ethics and History of Medicine of the University of Zurich, a WHO Collaborating Centre for Bioethics, is conducting a study with the support of the WHO Country Office in Kazakhstan on ethical and legal aspects of COVID-19 vaccine mandates in the WHO Europe region. For this purpose, we aim to collect information on the approaches of different States of the WHO Europe region to vaccine mandates and the epidemiological and political contexts in which these approaches were adopted and implemented. On this basis, we seek to elaborate policy recommendations regarding legal, political, and ethical considerations to be taken into account when developing and implementing policies on mandatory COVID-19 vaccination.

Detailed information will follow shortly.
