Ottawa, Canada, Mar 11, 2021 / 03:01 pm (CNA).- The Catholic bishops of Canada wrote this week on whether certain COVID-19 vaccines are morally preferable for Catholics, if given a choice.

“[W]hen provided with a choice between receiving different vaccines, the vaccine with the least connection to abortion-derived cell lines should always be preferred and chosen when possible,” Canada’s bishops said in a March 9 statement, while noting that choosing to be vaccinated “can be an act of charity which recognizes the need to care for others.”

The bishops’ statement follows the Canadian government’s approval on Feb. 26 of the COVID-19 vaccine manufactured by AstraZeneca, as well as a version of the AstraZeneca vaccine manufactured by Verity Pharmaceuticals Inc. and Serum Institute of India.
