There are few exemptions. The island state has some of the world’s highest vaccination rates and has taken a tough stance against the unvaccinated.

They held a referendum? Ballots? A show of hands, or perhaps an "all-for,Aye/all-opposed,Nay" call? I must have missed that. What was the final tally?

Any future longer-term vaccine adverse effects that occur might affect those 96% that complied with that mandatory vaccine requirement. IMO there is an enormous risk in getting the vaccine and we will see adverse long-term effects in the future. Let’s hope your firm has deep pockets because they will need some if the victim's insurance is unwilling to pay any compensation for vaccine related deaths/disabilities.
