What does the Church Say About the Covid Vaccine?

  • The vaccines developed by Moderna and Pfizer to combat COVID-19 may be taken without moral reservation.
  • The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is ethically more problematic than either the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, but may be taken if neither of the other two is available.
  • There is no moral obligation to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Catholics have an ongoing obligation to advocate that vaccine development and distribution be done in a morally acceptable manner throughout every stage.
