Government of Delhi on 8 October 2015 made swine flu vaccination mandatory for high-risk groups.

A decision in this regard was taken by Delhi’s health minister Satyendar Jain during a review meeting on the preparedness for dealing with the H1N1 virus (swine flu).

Under the mandatory vaccination, doctors, nurses and other paramedics in both government and private hospitals and high-risk groups like children, senior citizens and pregnant women will be provided free vaccination.

The government took this decision as reports suggest that swine flu is spreading in many parts of the country.

Besides the mandatory vaccination, the Education Department of Delhi will also appoint nodal teachers in schools to make students and staff aware of the preventive steps against the H1N1 virus.

These measures are in addition to the February 2015 decision that capped maximum charge levied by private labs on influenza testing at 4500 rupees.
