We perform an explicit calculation of the axial current at finite rotation and temperature in curved space. We find that finite curvature and mass corrections to the chiral vortical effect satisfy a relation of the chiral gap effect, that is, a fermion mass shift by a scalar curvature. We also point out that a product term of the angular velocity and the scalar curvature shares the same coefficient as the mixed gravitational chiral anomaly. We discuss possible applications of the curvature-induced chiral vortical effect to rotating astrophysical compact objects described by the Kerr metric. Instead of direct calculation, we assume that the Chern-Simons current can approximate the physical axial current. We make a proposal that the chiral vortical current from rotating compact objects could provide a novel microscopic mechanism behind the generation of collimated jets.
