On December 14, 2020, the United States surpassed 300,000 deaths from the COVID-19 virus.
In light of that devastating news, the U.S. Bishops doctrine and pro-life committees released a statement encouraging people to receive the recently released COVID-19 vaccine.
“Receiving the COVID-19 vaccine ought to be understood as an act of charity toward the other members of our community,” they said. “In this way, being vaccinated safely against COVID-19 should be considered an act of love of our neighbor and part of our moral responsibility for the common good.”
