The bench was hearing a PIL seeking directions to the Central government to start a door-to-door vaccination drive for senior citizens above 75 and also for physical disabilities & who are bed-ridden.
The Corporation is prepared to introduce door-to-door vaccination for such citizens and undertake measures for their vaccination upon making them aware of the consequences, under proper medical care and gave consent of either such citizens or their near relatives for being vaccinated.
The Mumbai Corporation through its affidavit said that the Centre is yet to come with guidelines for door-to-door vaccination.
As per guidelines issued by Central government from time to time.
A division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta orally observed that if the corporation was willing to start door-to-door vaccination – The court would grant permission
The bench said ‘Can you do DOOR-TO-DOOR VACCINATION?’. If you can we will allow you. Don’t wait for central government to give permission.
