Catholics in Australia encouraged to receive COVID-19 vaccine

21 April, 2021

The Australian Catholic Bishops Conference Commission for Life, Family and Public Engagement acknowledges that there are ethical concerns about the way some of the vaccines have been developed or tested.
Despite those concerns, the Commission follows the guidance of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in urging people to be vaccinated for their own health, and for the health of the wider community. There is a particular imperative to protect the health of those who are vulnerable.
