The Supreme Court of India has taken a major decision on the coronavirus vaccine. On Monday, Supreme Court said that no person can be forced to get vaccinated against coronavirus.
A bench of Justices L Nageswara Rao and BR Gavai reportedly said that bodily autonomy and integrity are protected under Article 21 of the constitution.
Further, it said, “Till numbers are low, we suggest that relevant orders are followed and no restriction is imposed on unvaccinated individuals on access to public areas or recall the same if already not done.”
This judgement has been made by the apex court on a plea filed by Jacob Puliyel. He sought directions for disclosure of data on clinical trials of covid vaccines and post-jab cases.
