The government reiterated its stand, saying, “No person can be vaccinated against his will.”

However, the government emphasized that the Covid-19 vaccination is in the larger public interest. Wide publicity is being given about it through various media so that people can get proper information about its benefits and they themselves come forward to get vaccinated.

The central government, through its affidavit, has also told the court that arrangements have been made to ensure 100% coverage of eligible beneficiaries with the first and second doses. For this, ‘Har Ghar Dastak Abhiyan’ was launched on 3 November last year.

The apex court was hearing a PIL filed by Ewara Foundation.
