ROCANA Statement: Unequivocally Against the Vaccines

Statement from the ROCA Dioceses of Syracuse-St. Nicholas and Ottawa-Canada on the Vaccines, dated June 3:

“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.”
