The New Daily reports that almost three-quarters of Australians would back a COVID-19 vaccine passport according to a new poll.

In the first survey of Australian attitudes to a jab mandate, 73 per cent of respondents agreed the government should make it compulsory for work, travel and study.

David Smith, an associate professor at the United States Studies Centre and the lead author of the University of Sydney and University of Western Australia study, noted that was more than the 66 per cent who reported they would get the shot voluntarily.
