New Delhi, Sep 23 (PTI) The Delhi High Court has directed a private school here to allow an unvaccinated teacher to join duties after a medical board found he was at a "higher risk" of having an allergic reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine.

Justice Rekha Palli noted the teacher shall always wear a mask while in the school premises and observe COVID-19 appropriate behaviour and guidelines.

The Delhi government told the court that in view of the medical condition of the petitioner, it has acceded to his request for exemption from COVID-19 vaccination as a special case.
