Yes - why would we risk more shut downs and more deaths

Definitely not !!! Vaccines have not been sufficiently researched to be authoritative as a great protector

Yes i do think this is a good idea, as we need to protect our Country from this virus and from future Viruses as well.

Getting vaccinated should be a choice. If I didn’t get vaccinated and got the virus, I am the one who suffer from it. My body my choice.

Yes.
But not now maybe December this year.
Because not everyone is eligible to have a vaccine at the moment.
And the vaccine roll out is very slow compared to other countries for example England did 25 million people in 100 days.
We need more places to get the vaccine not just some doctor's surgery's and some hospitals.
But the government does not seem to be in a hurry but we are getting more cases 2 in Queensland so far as of today.
And one in NSW both locally transmitted.
Today we may get to 500,000 vaccinated but in the first round here is 6 million.
Cases can increase rapidly it only takes one unknowingly infected person to increase the cases especially if they have been to many different places.
We have this now happening in Queensland.
The government has been working on a vaccination passport last year.

Yes - to protect themselves from litigation if someone can prove they caught the virus on the plane

Yes, definitely I think. Would feel much safer sitting on a plane knowing everyone else on board has been vaccinated especially international flights. Hope to get flying "safely" soon.
