List of countries have made Covid-19 vaccines mandatory

India's COVID-19 vaccination campaign was completed one year on 16 January. On 13 January, the government told the SC that it had not issued any guideline that needs vaccination without consent or makes a vaccination certificate mandatory for any purposes.

The WHO has said that it warns against vaccine directives unless all other options have been depleted.

Some of the countries and their views towards vaccine mandates:

France: On Sunday, The French parliament approved a law that will bar unvaccinated individuals from accessing bars, restaurants, and other venues. As of now, unvaccinated people can enter these venues provided they show the latest negative test reports.

If the bill becomes a law, then unvaccinated people will have no option but to get a vaccine pass to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The French public is protesting this measure in places including Paris, Marseilles, and Bordeaux.

President Emmanuel Macron said he wanted to "piss off" the unvaccinated people earlier this month.

Morocco: Double vaccine certificate is required to access government buildings and visit places, including bars, restaurants, and hotels.
