Bolsonaro: COVID Vaccine Should Not Be Mandatory

The New York Daily News reports:

The president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, is once again making headlines for his handling of the coronavirus crisis.  “No one can force anyone to get a vaccine,” Bolsonaro told a supporter on Monday, according to the Brazilian news site UOL.

The far-right leader of South America’s largest country was responding to a woman who told him that he “shouldn’t let the government do this vaccination thing” because it would be “dangerous.” Bolsonaro reiterated his anti-vaxxer position during a live broadcast on Facebook.
