The Allahabad High Court recently suggested that Uttar Pradesh Government should consider planning a door-to-door vaccination programme for citizens of all ages keeping in view the sudden increase in COVID-19 cases.
A Division Bench suggested and urged the government to provide vaccination to every citizen rather than restricting it to people above 45 years of age.
The Court additionally highlighted that even though the government has taken all the necessary steps to tackle the threat of the second wave of COVID-19, but it is observed that the directions given are not being followed by people.
The court stated that the public should also realise its responsibility towards the COVID-19 protocol.
In view of this, the Court has issued certain directions to all the District Magistrates in the State such as 100 percent masking in every district, maintain social distancing etc.
The matter is now scheduled to be heard on April 8 via video conference.
