With vaccine distribution now in full rollout, there are some who are planning to abstain from getting the jab. They cite the fact that aborted fetal cell lines were used in testing. Fr. Tad Pacholczyk discusses the stance of church leadership and what our bishops and the Vatican are saying. He notes there is no sin committed by getting the vaccine and encourages careful discernment about whether to do so, based on the particulars of each of our situations. Part of that discernment involves considering the common good, and whether you should consider getting vaccinated not merely for your own protection but perhaps to protect others around you, especially if you are in close proximity to vulnerable populations.
