In the light of information that I have seen being circulated recently, I am reposting the link to Fr Matthew's explanation of the ethical issues surrounding the COVID-19 vaccines. Fr Matthew's message provides a well informed and relevant message for his parishioners and for a wider audience. As I noted in my earlier post, Fr Matthew's parish is located in one of the East London boroughs that were affected by high case and sickness rates in the recent wave of the pandemic in England.
The Anscombe Bioethics Centre have also produced a series of papers related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including one on vaccines and foetal cell lines. These cover several different aspects of the response to the pandemic, and can be accessed here.
