Prof. Colleen Flood discusses the legalities around requiring health care workers to be vaccinated against the virus that causes COVID-19, both at the employer or hospital level and at the provincial government level.

Colleen Flood is a professor in the faculty of law and the inaugural director of the Centre for Health Law Policy & Ethics, both at the University of Ottawa.

She co-authored, with Prof. Bryan Thomas and Dr. Kumanan Wilson, an analysis article published in CMAJ. It's titled "Mandatory vaccination for health care workers: an analysis of law and policy."
