Maharashtra govt informs Bombay HC of its willingness to permit door-to-door COVID-19 vaccination

The Maharashtra Government has informed the Bombay High Court of its willingness to permit door-to-door COVID-19 vaccination within the state on an experimental basis, subject to certain conditions.

The Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice G.S. Kulkarni was hearing the plea seeking door-to-door COVID-19 vaccination for citizens above 75 years of age and those who are specially-abled or bed-ridden. The affidavit filed yesterday stated that once the State Government approves this proposal, it will be sent to the Central Government for its approval.

The affidavit said, home vaccination will be done only for beneficiaries who are truly immobile and bed-ridden; hence such a certificate from a treating doctor of the beneficiary has to be obtained. The certificate by the treating doctor must also certify that the concerned beneficiary is not likely to have Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFI) and the family member of the beneficiary shall mandatorily provide written consent. In any case, if the beneficiary gets AEFI, then such treating doctor shall be entirely responsible to manage and administer the appropriate treatment.
