The petition was filed in Delhi High Court by a final year law student of Delhi University

A plea was moved in the Delhi High Court today seeking direction to the Centre and AAP government to relax the age criterion for COVID-19 vaccination drive and to allow more private sector participation in the process.

The petition, filed by a final year law student of Delhi University, also sought direction to the authorities to formulate a policy to provide the benefits of vaccination drive to senior citizens, differently-abled persons and poor sections of the society by initiating door-to-door vaccination services in the national capital.

The petitioner Mrigank Mishra, represented through advocate Kushal Kumar, said in the light of the alarming situation of rising coronavirus cases and the second wave which is more severe than the first one, it is pertinent to boost the vaccination drive for which widening of involvement of private sector entities is necessary as it will facilitate rapid and mass vaccination and allow door-to-door vaccination of the citizens.
