| Wednesday | 30th June, 2021
The Maharashtra government on Wednesday told the Bombay High Court that it would soon start home vaccination against COVID-19 for people who are immobile or bedridden on an experimental basis and would not wait for an approval from the Centre.
State Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbhakoni told a division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice G S Kulkarni that home vaccination on a trial and experimental basis would be introduced in Pune district first.
“We will not refer the proposal to start home vaccination to the Centre for approval.
We will explore this possibility (home vaccination) on a trial basis in Pune district” Kumbhakoni said.
The HC also said the state government can go ahead with its home vaccination drive on an experimental basis and need not wait for orders from the court.
