SEAFARERS cannot be compelled to be vaccinated against coronavirus even where states insist all crew members must be inoculated prior to making port calls

SEAFARERS cannot be compelled to be vaccinated against coronavirus even where states insist all crew members must be inoculated prior to making port calls, the International Chamber of Shipping says. The situation could put owners in the invidious position of having to cancel voyages rather than take on the legal, financial and reputational risks of being denied entry, the trade association added.  Natalie Shaw,  Director of Employment Affairs for the ICS is a speaker at our forthcoming Containing COVID-19: Containerisation’s Role in Global Vaccine Logistics online seminar on April 15 2021 – you can book your place and join us here.
