Abstract

The multiple COVID-19 vaccines developed over the past months are typically thought of as the only means to meet the challenges posed by the current pandemic. Still, the public opinion on vaccines is heavily divided. And, of course, discussions about compulsory vaccination, oftentimes based on fundamental rights arguments, tend to become heated. This note analyses the issues at hand based on the case law of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).

Keywords: Compulsory Vaccination, Human Rights, European Convention on Human Rights, European Court of Human Rights, COVID-19
