NSW Liberal MP Tanya Davies says there are “serious concerns about privacy” if businesses and the government introduce COVID-19 vaccine mandates.

Ms Davies is introducing a Private Members’ bill to Parliament that seeks to ban companies and the government from mandating COVID-19 vaccines, in a move she says will “protect individuals, and protect businesses.”

“At the end of the day, I stand up for individual people’s rights, and there are some people that cannot or choose not to have a vaccine.

“We certainly should not be living in a society whereby a government or a business coerces or forces an employee to have a vaccine outside and beyond their individual circumstances.

“It is certainly not a position I, as a Liberal, stand by or endorse.”
