MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Archbishop Thomas Wenski has written to all South Florida Catholic priests reiterating that there is no moral objection to receiving any of the COVID-19 vaccines and that they can be received in good conscience.
“So to the question, can the parish be used as a site for all the currently available vaccinations, the answer is YES,” the archbishop wrote. “To the question, should I advise my parishioners to receive any of the three vaccinations available, the answer is also a definite YES,” Wenski said.READ MORE: Passing Asteroid Lights Up South Florida Sky
