Faith and Spiritual Affairs Advisory Board Vaccination Statement
The faith leaders of the DBHIDS Faith and Spiritual Affairs Advisory Board recommend considering the vaccine as another viable option to mitigate the effects of COVID-19. This virus continues to impact our city, and communities of color continue to bear its disproportionate impact.
We encourage you to seek counsel from a trusted medical expert if you have questions or concerns and become familiar with the City’s phased approach to vaccine distribution. If you feel this choice is right for you please register to be notified when you are eligible to receive the
vaccine. You can also visit the Philadelphia Department of Public Health website to view frequently asked questions and answers.
As you discern, continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a face covering, maintaining social distance, and practicing proper hand-washing hygiene. As you care for yourself, you care for our city.
