Earlier this week, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) spoke out against religious exemptions for COVID-19 vaccinations in the Empire State and called on Facebook to combat abortion-related "misinformation."
On Wednesday, the vice president of the Christian Medical & Dental Associations said that he opposes the Biden administration's COVID-19 vaccine mandate, even though he supports the vaccine itself and recommends people get it.
Several Southern Baptist leaders are vocalizing their support for COVID-19 vaccines while also noting that they believe President Joe Biden's vaccine/testing mandate on private employers is a form of government overreach.
In a recent interview with Religion News Service, Dr. Francis Collins, the director of the National Institutes of Health, shared that he is “a bit” frustrated with fellow evangelicals who have hesitated or refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
