The Court asked for a vaccination protocol and something should be done for senior citizens. The Court also took notice of some political leaders of Maharashtra who took vaccination at home. The Court was informed by the centre that there is no door-to-door vaccination policy.
Chief Judge Dipankar Datta stated that when some have the luxury to get vaccination jab at home and some do not have this luxury. "If the Prime Minister can go to the vaccination centre and get the vaccine, then why cannot Maharashtra leaders do the same?" the Court noted. Where Judge GS Kulkarni echoed that even President got a vaccine at AIIMS.
