Muslim Perspectives on COVID-19 Vaccine

The Imam Council of Metropolitan St. Louis released a statement on August 11, 2021 urging all Muslims to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

"According to the Qur'an and Sunnah, we are obligated to the best of our ability to do what we can to keep ourselves, and those around us healthy and safe. We also stress and urge that NO religious exemption is to be given to avoid receiving this vaccination, as this puts yourself and others at risk. Only your physician can provide this."
