Regarding Religious Exception from Covid-19 Vaccine

Office of the Bishop

From Bishop Barber, “The Catholic Church recommends people get vaccinated against COVID-19. The Vatican has stated the connection with aborted fetal tissue is remote enough that it is morally permissible to take the vaccine. Therefore, since the Catholic Church has formally recommended its members receive the vaccine, a ‘religious exemption’ would not apply to Catholics.” Please click here for Bishop Barber’s full letter and click here for additional resources from the Vatican website.
