Can employees refuse to have the COVID-19 vaccination?


Authored by AXA

With progress on the COVID-19 vaccinations making good headway and as more of the working population becomes eligible, the question of whether an employee can refuse their employer’s request to be vaccinated has been raised.

It might be thought that getting protected against COVID-19 would be a desirable prospect but there are those for whom the prospect of vaccinations is genuinely concerning, for a variety of reasons. There is therefore a chance that employers will find they have employees who refuse a request to have the vaccination.
