"Can't leave the old to die": Bombay High Court on home vaccination
Amid the high number of corona cases, people, especially old aged people, suffer as they can not go to vaccination centers to get vaccines. Taking this as one of the significant hurdles, and to save many old aged people, the lawyers Dhruti Kapadia and Kunal Tiwari have filed a petition, seeking a direction to the center to allow home vaccination. The municipal agency in Mumbai has also raised this issue legally.
The Bombay High Court takes this as one of the critical health issues, and it has criticized the center for not allowing door-to-door COVID-19 vaccination drive. It asked the center to see if people can be vaccinated at home, especially the elderly, amid the second wave of the pandemic.
