Most small businesses are backing mandatory vaccination in workplaces. 

A survey by the Auckland Business Chamber suggests 90 percent of small and medium sized businesses want it. 

Chief executive Michael Barnett says told Mike Yardley the Government must mandate it, otherwise the obvious legal battles would come. 

"It's about safety and it's safety for workplaces and safety for the consumers and the Government needs to remove the ambiguity and give clarity for employers and do it now."
