EWTN Catholic Q&A
Failure to Vaccinate is a sin
Question from Joseph A. Apicella on 05-15-2019:

Failure to vaccinate is a sin against God and your fellow man. Conscience must be adequately informed. God has provided vaccines and all major religious authorities have said they are safe. This sin against children must be stopped.

Answer by Judie Brown on 05-17-2019:


This is a question of parental rights and should not become a dictum from the state or the federal government or, for that matter, a bishop. In some cases the very health of a child can be negatively impacted by certain vaccines. That is a scientific fact.
