The Supreme court of India has given the verdict that no person can be forced to be given the COVID vaccine. Even though COVID vaccines are necessary, it is up to the individual choice to take the vaccine or not. Moreover, not the centre nor the state government can force the people to take COVID jabs.
A bench comprising Justices L. Nageswara Rao and B.R. Gavai said that restrictions imposed on the unvaccinated people by different organisations, institutions, and governments are not proportional. The bench suggested till numbers are low, state governments must remove such restrictions.
The bench noted that bodily autonomy/bodily integrity is a constitutional right, therefore no individual can be forced to get vaccinated. It also said that the current Covid-19 policy of the government is not arbitrary.
