Is it morally and ethically wrong for any of the other required inoculations in particular industries?
Yes, there are moral and ethical considerations to consider for other inoculations for specific industries. I am in favour for inoculations for those industries and even for COVID, but I just think we just should think about the moral and ethical implications of mandates/termination at some point. A tiny, but not insignificant, percentage of people don't want to take vaccines. That is something we are going to have to deal with.

It’s certainly a debate worth having, I’d argue protecting the league players and community at large is reasons for requirements such as this.
Not even so much a debate. As long as the ethical and moral stuff is considered at some point, then that's fine by me.

I mean taking it on face value I’d guess contact sport would seem to be a high risk occupation due to the physical proximity and sweat etc flying around, on that level taking advice that vax is the best protect against the spread I think is pretty reasonable particularly considering the implications to the public, league and clubs if an outbreak occured

I know it is and I am saying I believe there is something morally/ethically wrong with it.
Maybe, but if you're going to make it an argument of morals; it's just as easy to say that an individual choosing to not get the vaccine is immoral and unethical due to the potentially severe negative impacts on society as a whole. And which is more important, the impact on an individual, or on a collective?

In any case, kids require certain vaccines to go to childcare and school. Healthcare workers have been required to get other vaccines for yonks. My sister was required to get the flu vax when she worked at Kmart. You don't have to get it, but there are consequences for not doing so (termination of employment), just like with anything else. I'm sure that some people think they're being oppressed when they're forced to drive at or under the speed limit, but given that that law improves both their, and other driver's safety, I'd happily tell them to get in the bin with such arguments.
