RESOURCES FOR FAITH-BASED COMMUNITIES
COVID-19 can have serious, life-threatening complications, and there’s no way to know how COVID-19 will affect you or your loved ones. And if you get sick, you could spread the disease to friends, family, and others in your community.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective at preventing hospitalizations and deaths.
The only way to continue worshiping together is to ensure we increase the vaccination rate. At some point, it’s expected that the natural immunities from those who got COVID-19 will wear off.
Even if you’ve had COVID-19, experts still recommend that you get vaccinated, because we don’t yet know how long natural antibodies last.
People who have allergies that aren’t related to vaccines or injectable medications can get the vaccine. For example, people who are allergic to pet hair, latex gloves, etc., are able to get the vaccine.
Stopping a pandemic requires using all the tools available to us. The combination of getting vaccinated and following the CDC’s recommendations to protect yourself and others offers the best protection for you and your congregation.
