no person can be forced to be vaccinated against their wishes”,Centre told the Supreme Court also chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said, “We are also saying the same thing. It is not mandatory to get vaccinated. But it is mandatory to be fully vaccinated for coming to office.” He added If someone does not take vaccine and stays at home, we have no objection. But that person cannot come to meetings, office, malls or restaurants without being fully vaccinated.”

He also said “in Assam, if necessary, one has to show the fully vaccinated certificate. We cannot allow any behaviour which is against the well-being of the people.

Assam chief secretary Jishnu Baruah told TOI, “Those government employees who are not fully vaccinated will have to take leave. And then if they do not have any leave, it will be leave without pay. They cannot show as entitled leave.”
Assam State Disaster Management Authority (ASDMA) chief executive officer Gyanendra Dev Tripathi said all districts have been instructed to enforce the ‘fully vaccinated’ condition for entering offices and public spaces strictly. “In fact, many shopping malls have already enforced this before the SoP came into force,”
