Bombay HC asks Centre to share manner and method of vaccine allocation to States

  • On Saturday, the Bombay High Court ordered the central government to produce an affidavit outlining how COVID-19 vaccinations will be distributed to states.

  • While hearing a public interest litigation filed by Yogeeta Vanzara, a city resident, who raised concerns about issues faced by the public in obtaining COVID-19 vaccination appointments through the CoWin portal, a division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice G S Kulkarni issued this directive.

  • Advocate Jamsheed Master, who appeared on behalf of the petitioner, told the court that just 14 lakh individuals in Mumbai have been fully vaccinated, while 50 lakh have got the first dosage of the vaccine.
