SDA Ghana Encourages Members To Take COVID-19 Vaccine

The Seventh-Day Adventist of Ghana has made its position clear on the COVID-19 immunization program set to commence soon in Ghana.

This follows a series of ‘fabricated’ stories about the vaccines which will arrive in the country today, 24th February, 2021.

In a communique, the religious body said “it has no religious or faith-based reason not to encourage its members to participate in a protective and preventive immunization program.”

It therefore said it “encourages members to consider responsible immunization.”

According to the statement, “the stand of the Adventist Church is based on its strong teaching and practices on health and wellbeing informed by biblical revelation, writings of Ellen G. White (co-founder of the church) and peer-reviewed scientific literature.”

It also discouraged speculations about the vaccines saying “such bring the word of God into disrepute and causes confusion among sincere but less informed believers and distract sincere believers from the real prophetic issues.”

Below is a copy of the full statement:
