In pastoral letter, bishops of Alberta and the Northwest Territories tell Catholics when a vaccine is available to treat or prevent COVID-19, it is OK to take it.
Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales publish a document suggesting that Catholics could not conscientiously object to using COVID-19 vaccine.
Catholic Health Association believes all people should be vaccinated to protect the vunerable.
More bishops are pleading with their governments to give priority to ethically developed coronavirus vaccines, but many also are telling Catholics that not getting vaccinated is a more serious moral problem than using the problematic vaccines.
