The North American Diocese of the Russian Orthodox Church Abroad on the COVID Vaccines

The Russian Orthodox Church Abroad does not bless its members to accept any of the COVID vaccines. These are not traditional vaccines, but rather a program designed to override and manipulate the natural immune system of the body. These vaccines are only experimental and stand to do irreparable harm to a persons God given immune system. In addition they contain and/or use aborted human infant tissue in their production. Consequently the Church cannot and will not bless anyone to accept these vaccines and strenuously warns everyone against accepting them.
