Prime Minister Scott Morrison has emphasised that it will not be compulsory for Australians to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. He had initially stated that vaccination would be "as mandatory as possible" and people would only be exempted on medical grounds. However, Morrison says his preference is for 95 per cent of Australians to be vaccinated, and the government will introduce measures aimed at encouraging a high rate of immunisation when and if an effective COVID-19 vaccination becomes available.
