Churches Together in South London: Statement on Covid-19 Vaccine

In a statement that marks the end of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity,  church leaders who make up the ecumenical partnership of Churches Together In South London issued the following joint statement:

We know that some people have concerns and fears about the Covid-19 vaccination, and we do not underestimate these. Current reliable scientific advice is that the vaccine offers the best way to control the pandemic and help to save lives.  Each of our Christian traditions allows for the vaccine to be received for these purposes.  It is believed that the vaccine will reduce the impact of Covid-19 and lessen the pressure on the NHS.  This is our prayer as we trust in God and commend the vaccine.

For information about the vaccine and when you may be offered it, please see https://selondonccg.nhs.uk/what-we-do/covid-19/covid-19-vaccine.

Ends
