The International Chamber of Shipping is raising the alarm on seafarer vaccinations… or lack there of.
The shipping trade group has warned that lack of access to vaccinations for the world’s seafarers puts shipping in a ‘legal minefield’, while leaving global supply chains vulnerable.
A legal document due to be circulated by ICS to the global shipping community later this week highlights concerns that vaccinations could soon become a compulsory requirement for work at sea because of reports that some governments are insisting all crew be vaccinated as a pre-condition of entering their ports.
