Kerala chief minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Tuesday said individuals not following adequate Covid-19 preventative measures could be barred from receiving free treatment. Vijayan specified that the government will not pay for the treatment of unvaccinated patients who contracted the disease.

Kerala was among the states which saw a large number of cases even as cases reduced in other states during the second wave.The chief minister made the announcement during a Covid-19 review meeting. The government said in a press release that those who failed to get vaccinated due to disease or allergies will have to produce a valid government doctor's certificate.

Vijayan also said that the government directed the state health ministry to organise a special vaccination drive from December 1 to 15 in the state. He also urged the college and school administrators to get vaccinated or produce a government doctor's certificate citing reasons behind not getting vaccinated.
