Information for Catholics on the Moral Efficacy of COVID-19 Vaccines

Diocese of Joliet offices have received a number of questions regarding the ethical and moral considerations regarding the COVID-19 vaccine.  The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and the Illinois bishops through the Catholic Conference of Illinois (CCI) have issued several statements and moral guidance on this issue. 

Visit our Office for Human Dignity website for more information regarding the COVID-19 vaccines, as well as opportunities to advocate for ethical vaccine development.
