European Union countries should consider mandatory vaccination to combat Covid and the Omicron variant, Ursula von der Leyen has said. The European Commission president added vaccines would be crucial in the fight against the “highly contagious” new strain and it was “understandable and appropriate” to discuss forced jabs, with a third of the EU’s population unvaccinated. Omicron has now been reported in 24 countries according to the World Health Organisation, who added early signs were that most cases were “mild” and not severe.
