COVID-19 Vaccine

Information to help you make the best decision for you and your family.

You probably have questions about the COVID-19 Vaccine.

Many of us are feeling confused right now regarding COVID-19. The government and media are urging people to be vaccinated, but mistrust of those institutions is at an all-time high. We’ve heard from many who want answers from the medical community without being filtered through the government or media. What is the science behind this vaccine? Is it safe? Is it necessary? Soon everyone will have to decide whether to be vaccinated. Berean is not taking a position on this, but we do want to help by equipping our church and community with reliable information.
