Vaccines are being developed at a record rate worldwide. But the launch must overcome obstacles, namely how to best provide vaccines quickly and how to persuade some reluctant .
There are also moral dilemmas about who should be vaccinated first and how to deal with those who refuse to participate and endanger the success of immunization. Then there is the question of whether it is morally correct for certain groups in some countries and societies to benefit from immunization before others.
The experts who wrote for The Conversation provided guidance on how to deal with some of these ethical issues.
At first glance, the question of whether someone can be forced to be vaccinated should be a fairly simple ethical question-as many people say, people are of course obligated to vaccinate. But as the moral philosopher Travis Rieder explained, this is not easy.
In fact, it is quite complicated. He did not recommend vaccination without overwhelming reasons. It is just that these reasons do not constitute an “obligation.”
Reider asked whether it is correct to force someone to engage in behaviors that can be considered personal and intimate. “[Vaccination] involves injecting a substance into your body, which is a form of physical intimacy. It needs to allow another person to pierce the barrier between your body and the world,” Reid wrote.

Most people are very happy to get vaccinated as a way to get rid of the pandemic
Elizabeth Lanphier, a medical ethicist at the University of Cincinnati, believes that those who use privilege to skip this line should certainly feel a little guilty. But for the rest of us, a little vaccination guilt—a feeling related to getting the vaccine before other people who may need it more or may live in an area where vaccines are not so easily available—maybe a thing Good thing.
Lanphier writes, “A good reason to feel guilty about vaccines is that it helps people recognize the advantages they have gained by participating in—sometimes because of—unjust and unfair systems. Promote better accountability and fairness within the social and political organizations responsible for the healthcare system in general, especially the COVID-19 response.”
