Vaccination is also on the rise in the wake of the corona boom in the country. Meanwhile, the Center told the Supreme Court that a person cannot be vaccinated forcibly without permission.

The Center told the apex court that the Kovid-19 vaccination guidelines issued by the Union Ministry of Health did not address the issue of forced vaccination of a person without permission.

The Center told the apex court that it had not issued a standard operating procedure (SOP) that would make it mandatory to carry a vaccination certificate for any purpose, on the issue of exempting persons with disabilities from obtaining vaccination certificates.

The center, which responded to a petition by the charity Evara Foundation, filed the case in its affidavit. The petition seeks to go home and vaccinate the disabled on a priority basis.

“The guidelines issued by the Government of India and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare do not anticipate forcible vaccination without the consent of the person concerned,” the affidavit filed by the Union Ministry of Health said. In view of the epidemic situation, vaccination for COVID-19 is in the public interest.

“All citizens have been systematically advised, promoted and communicated through various print and social media platforms to be vaccinated. Systems and procedures have been devised to facilitate this,” the ministry said. However, the center said it should not be forced to vaccinate against anyone’s wishes.
