    Australia's Northern Territory makes COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for service workers

    Shop workers, tourist guides and barbers are among dozens of groups who must get COVID-19 shots to work in Australia's Northern Territory, officials announced Wednesday (Oct 13), unveiling one of the world's most far-reaching vaccine mandates.

    Expressing concern at low coronavirus jab rates in some communities, the territory's chief minister Michael Gunner announced "anyone serving the public at work will have to be vaccinated".

    The vast Northern Territory stretches from tropical Darwin on the Timor Sea to the dusty Outback settlements of Alice Springs and Uluru - an area three times the size of Spain.

    It is home to a large number of Aboriginal and other vulnerable remote communities.

    Although more than 80 per cent of the region's adult population has received at least one dose, Gunner said there were "patches of concern" and communities where people are hesitant or refusing the vaccine.

    "I am making sure we do everything possible to get everyone vaccinated," Gunner said.

    "You can't hold people down and stick a needle in their arm. It is their choice and some are choosing against it."
