Shimla, August 18

Appropriate action would be taken forthwith to ensure that the medical staff would go to the place of the aged persons and administer the vaccination to them throughout the state.

This was stated by the counsel for the state before the high court while hearing a public interest litigation and other petitions highlighting inadequate facilities and infrastructure in the state to deal with the Corona pandemic.

During the course of hearing, it was brought to the notice of the court that certain aged persons are unable to move out of their residence in order to avail the vaccination benefit.

A division bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Ravi Malimath and Justice Jyotsna Rewal Dua also perused the affidavit of the Special Secretary (Health) wherein he has informed the various efforts being made by the state with regard to procurement of equipment, make-shift hospitals, vaccination, bed position, man power.
