Do not persuade people to get vaccinated: Meghalaya HC to state govt
The Meghalaya High Court on Thursday asked the state government not to try to persuade people to take the vaccination against COVID-19.
The order was passed by the division bench, which comprises Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice W Diengdoh, while hearing a PIL on the matter.
“However, the state should not relent on the vaccination drive or try to persuade people to take the vaccination or even provide for disincentives upon refusal,” the bench said.
The bench has also decided to defer the hearing to the first week of February, next year since the number of covid cases in the state has been on the decline.
