Of the 1,500 people polled by the consulting firm Deloitte, 49% believed vaccination was a private matter and that the employer should stay out of it, according to the results released on Thursday.

Among the 51% who thought their employer should get involved, a majority (59%) wanted their employer to recommend taking the Covid vaccine. Just under half wanted further encouragement in the form of incentives, such as bonuses or arranging vaccination appointments. However, only a minority (16%) believed that vaccination should be a pre-requisite for undertaking certain occupational activities.

Although there were no marked differences in results between age groups or regions, according to Deloitte, workers at larger companies were somewhat more open to their employers actively influencing vaccination among staff than those working for small or medium enterprises.
