Presbyterian Church USA: Vaccination and Faithfulness in a Time of Pandemic

The theological commitments of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) compel us to support vaccination against COVID-19 for all people except those who are unable to receive the vaccines due either to age or medical condition.

Because we believe in the God who urged the people of God to “seek the good of the city” (Jeremiah 29:7) where they were located, a city that was not even their native home, we urge all people to be vaccinated.… Read the rest

Imam Mohamed Magid: Faith and the COVID-19 vaccine: ‘Muslims were among the first to believe in vaccines’
