LI Diocese Echoes Bishops' Call to Avoid J&J Vaccine — A Reckless Message, Others Say

A Long Island diocese issued a memo warning Catholics against getting one of the COVID-19 vaccines that is now available, saying it raises moral and ethical implications due to how it was produced.

"As a Catholic, I probably would avoid that if possible," said teacher Meaghan O'Brien, who had just heard about the advice from the church.

However, the head of Long Island's Episcopal Church called the message from the diocese reckless and misleading.

It calls into question whether they are doing the morally right thing," said Right Rev.

The diocese statement also does not question the safety or effectiveness of the vaccine, only the moral dilemma.

Another woman said she would be getting it to avoid getting sick and so she could spend time with her kids.
