MJRC Guidance Regarding COVID-19 Vaccination



MJRC Guidance Regarding COVID-19 Vaccination


The following guidance was prepared by the Faith and Halakhic Standards Committee of the Messianic Jewish Rabbinical Council.

The global coronavirus pandemic has left a tragic (and still-rising) death toll and has radically disrupted our communal way of life. Meanwhile, the worldwide scientific endeavor to find solutions for COVID-19 immunity has yielded numerous vaccines in various stages of clinical trial, two of which have been proven (through rigorous testing and approval processes) to be both safe and effective​.​ According to public health experts, ending the pandemic soonest and most safely requires that a substantial proportion of the population be vaccinated.

What does the Torah and our tradition ​teach regarding the obligation to be vaccinated against a virus spreading pandemically?
