COVID VACCINE ETHICS

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated families and communities around the world. Finally, there is hope for the end of the pandemic coming in the form of vaccines that deemed safe and effective by FDA and medical community and morally acceptable by the Vatican, US Conference of Catholic Bishops, and California Catholic Conference of Bishops, as well as National Catholic Bioethics Center and Charlotte Lozier Institute.


As a faith community concerned about the sanctity of human life, the Diocese of San Jose encourages everyone to strongly consider getting vaccinated, after consulting their physicians or health care providers, for the sake of their own health and the common good of our community.


The Diocese of San Jose also urges local government leaders to ensure safe and affordable access to these vaccines, most especially for vulnerable and disadvantaged populations.
