Millennium Post Delhi|November 30, 2021
The Centre on Monday told the Supreme Court that it has not mandated for COVID-19 vaccines to be administered mandatorily at this stage and all data relating to clinical trial approved by Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI), and vaccination data that is required to be and can be released as per law is already available in the public domain.

But the default standards for “safety” haphazardly narrowed and heightened as COVID-19 burst onto the scene. Lockdowns, school closures, and other restrictions substantially limited people’s access to each other.
