Some US bishops discourage Catholics from getting Johnson & Johnson vaccine if others are available


As officials and health experts race to get Americans vaccinated against Covid-19, some Catholic bishops have weighed in to discourage Church members from getting the latest, single-shot vaccine from Johnson & Johnson when alternatives are available.


The US Conference of Catholic Bishops, as well as at least 6 other dioceses from across the country have released statements expressing "moral concerns" over the shot due to its use of lab-grown cells that descend from cells taken in the 1980s from the tissue of aborted fetuses.


The vaccine is the third to be authorized for use in the United States. Unlike its predecessors -- from Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna -- the Johnson & Johnson vaccine requires only one shot and can be kept at normal refrigerator temperatures, making it easy to transport.

Health experts have cautioned that Americans should get the vaccine they are offered.

"If people are offered the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, they shouldn't say, 'I don't want it,'" Dr. Paul Goepfert, director of the Alabama Vaccine Research Clinic, said last month. "We are not in a scenario where we can pick and choose vaccines."

Prior to the US emergency use authorization for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, the doctrinal office for the Roman Catholic Church -- the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith -- said that "it is morally acceptable to receive Covid-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process."

I saw this yesterday. Personally we prefer to get either Pfeizer or Moderna since they have higher effective rate and we want to travel. This ảrticle adds another reason on top of that.

If it's our turn to get vaccinated, I hope we can choose for which one now. Otherwise we have to decide whether we want to get back in line if we are offered J&J or not.

ông 8: hãng nào cũng dùng aborted fetus hết, the other 2 companies too. J&J used it in 3 stages (dev, test and confirm) còn 2 hãng kia chỉ used in confirmation stage only.
