Aligning Our Christian Values with Our COVID-19 Vaccine Decision 

There is no doubt that COVID-19 has been extra hard on our communities. Most of us know someone who has been severely sickened or even died after becoming ill with the coronavirus. 

Now we have a vaccine to help us protect ourselves and our loved ones from COVID-19, but before deciding to take the shot, it's important to make sure it is safe and that it aligns with our Christian values and convictions. 

Understanding the Ethics of Vaccine Production

Moderna and Pfizer COVID-19 vaccines do not contain any aborted fetal cells.

That is why faith leaders are encouraging believers to vaccinate with either Moderna or Pfizer to protect life at all ages, especially the unborn and the elderly.

Vaccines Are Accessible to Us

Every Latino person in the United States has the opportunity to be vaccinated for free, even if you don't have insurance or are undocumented.

Most grocery stores and pharmacies now have walk-in vaccine appointments available.

As Latinos, we are at a higher risk of contracting the virus through work. 43% of Latinos are essential workers, making us more vulnerable to exposure daily. 

But we have the opportunity to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities by vaccinating. Soon, we can make worshipping safely in person and hugging our loved ones a reality.
