The Government’s mandatory vaccination policy will ultimately destroy the country’s already faltering economy, says a fearful Damani Tabor, United Progressive Party Senator.

Reportedly, the Browne Administration intends to pass legislation that mandates COVID-19 vaccination for private-sector employees; and Tabor warns that this will have severe implications for the country.

If vaccination is forced on the private sector and enough employees decide they will not comply, Tabor says that businesses will fail.

This, in turn, will have an impact on the Social Security Scheme, which is already struggling to pay pensioners on a monthly basis, he says.
