India – India’s ‘arbitrary and irrational’ vaccine policy spells trouble (East Asia Forum)

R Ramakumar writes: In May 2021, the Supreme Court of India remarked that the country’s policy of charging those aged between 18–45 for COVID-19 vaccines was ‘prima facie arbitrary and irrational’. The government has since revised its vaccine policy by covering a larger share of the population with free vaccines.
