Vaccination paused in Chhattisgarh after HC says reconsider policy

Vaccination in Chhattisgarh of the age group of 18-44 paused by the Chhattisgarh Government as the high court says to reconsider the vaccination policy.

The health department of the state, however, issued the circulars to all the district collectors about the pause in the vaccination policy as if it’s not paused then it’ll amount to the Contempt of the Court.

The High Court observed this while hearing the plea which sought to challenge the order of the Chhattisgarh Government which seeks to vaccinate Antyodaya card holders first, then those who are below poverty line and then those who are above the below poverty line.

However, the bench comprising of the Chief Justice P R Ramchandra Menon and Justice P S Sahu directed the state government to hold the discussion at high level for consideration of the spread of the disease and about those who are eligible for vaccination.

Now, the matter is being scheduled for further hearing on May 7.
