Legal action to be taken against unvaccinated residents in Gayatext_fields
Gaya district officials said that Gaya residents who have not taken Covid vaccines would have to face legal action. They shall further not be entitled to receive food from government shops at subsidized rates.
District magistrate Abhishek Singh directed all circle officers, block development officers, CDPOs, and others through video conferencing to implement the order.
"The officials have been asked to find people who have not taken corona vaccines and intimate them to take the vaccines at the earliest. In case of refusal, they have to face legal action. The district administration has the right to register FIR under Epidemic Diseases Act, 2005," Singh said.
"The owners of the government shops have been directed to sell foods only to those who present certificates of Covid-19 vaccine after October 31," he said.
The district administration will start a mega vaccination campaign from October 28 to November 7. Those who have not taken the first dose or missed out on the second dose can avail vaccines during the campaign. Thus far, 24,78,935 people have taken vaccines in the district.
