My first time signing a death certificate as a physician was for a Covid-19 patient. My wife and I pediatricians but our hospital has been stretched thin enough that both my wife and I were redeployed to care for Covid patients. This pandemic has cost so many lives. Vaccines are the only way for it to end and Christians to be the first in line to get it to love their communities. In his greatest commandments Jesus didn’t mention loving your own liberty, he mentioned loving God and loving your neighbor as you love yourself. Getting a vaccine is loving your neighbor and not getting one when you can is not Christ like.

I worked in West Africa in the 90's before vaccines had reached the remote rural areas, and know families who tragically lost children to whooping cough and measles. The dying stopped when the expanded vaccination campaign reached the villages. I know first hand why vaccinations work and why they are an important part of health for everyone's family and for public health.

As a global public health physician I have seen the devastation this pandemic has had both globally and personally and have been so disappointed in most of our US Evangelical misinformation and response to this crisis and the potential to save others lives with the vaccine. I want to show my support for “speaking the truth in love” at a time our “neighbors” throughout the world need it.

COVID-19 vaccinations and encouraging others to take is is "loving our neighbor."

We must show our love for others by getting our vaccination and not spreading this deadly disease. Visit an ICU and see what it can do to a body - young or old. Look at the numbers!

Much of Christianity in recent years has relinquished its witness of shalom, compassion, and hesed (Heb. “selfless lovingkindness”). In the face of this public health emergency it should be considered an honor to get vaccinated -- and an opportunity to live out before an understandably skeptical culture that long and venerable tradition of sound philosophy and reasoning, good science and medical missions, which have exemplified the best of Christian ethical tradition and the radical love of Jesus.

I’m already vaccinated because I work in health care with geriatric patients. I’m doing what I can to help protect those that are already vulnerable.

As followers of Jesus shouldn’t we be the first ones to protect our neighbors?
