Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine
As a faith community concerned about the sanctity of human life, the archdiocese encourages everyone to get vaccinated for the sake of their own health and the common good.
It is morally permissible to receive the COVID-19 vaccines. Pope Francis, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and Cardinal Cupich have confirmed this. Christ was a healer and science and medicine heal, too. We should look at this advancement in science and development of life-saving vaccines as gifts from God.
The parable of the good Samaritan is about the importance of aiding the stranger and getting vaccinated as an act of love and charity for your neighbor.
To register for vaccination or to get more information about the vaccine, visit your local health department’s vaccination website:

When the COVID-19 vaccine will be offered to you, whom will you get it for? Leave us a comment&photo using #IWillDoIt4. We will pray for all who have been lost to the virus, those suffering from the illness, & those enduring financial hardship & isolation because of the pandemic. pic.twitter.com/12eIvi6Pze— Archdiocese Chicago (@archchicago) April 8, 2021
