Delhi: The Supreme Court has ruled that no individual should be forced to be vaccinated against corona. The corona vaccine has been given to people in India since January 2020. Under these circumstances, corona vaccination was made compulsory in some states. The Supreme Court today (May 2) gave its verdict in the welfare cases filed against it.
Case Background: State governments in various states, including Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Delhi, have announced restrictions on those who have not been vaccinated against corona. Various lawsuits have been filed in the Supreme Court alleging that this is unconstitutional. The Supreme Court, which heard the cases, adjourned the verdict.
Do not be forced to pay for the vaccine: Judgment in these cases is out today. It said, “No individual should be forced to be vaccinated. Under Article 21 of the Constitution, it is illegal to force the public to do so. At the same time, state governments have the power to make regulatory and policy decisions in the interest of public health.”
If there is an order that it is perhaps mandatory to vaccinate, they should be removed. If there is an order or notice that those who can come to public places must have been vaccinated, they must be withdrawn. In addition, if there is any harm to those who have been vaccinated, the federal government should release the relevant information. “
