Vaccinations

The Golden Age, February 4, 1931, p. 293

"Vaccination is a direct violation of the everlasting covenant that God made with Noah after the flood."


The Watchtower, December 15, 1952, p. 764

"Is vaccination a violation of God's law forbidding the taking of blood into the system?É After consideration of the matter, it does not appear to us to be in violation of the everlasting covenant made with Noah, as set down in Genesis 9:4, nor contrary to God's related commandment at Leviticus 17:10- 14É Hence all objection to vaccination on Scriptural grounds seems to be lacking."


The Watchtower, November 1, 1961, p. 670

"Since the Bible forbids the eating of blood, how are Christians to view the use of serums and vaccines? Has the Society changed its viewpoint on this?ÉHowever, vaccination is a virtually unavoidable practice in many segments of modern society, and the Christian may find some comfort under the circumstances in the fact that this use is not in actuality a feeding or nourishing process, which was specifically forbidden when God said that man was not to eat blood, but it is a contamination of the human system.


Awake!, August 22, 1965, p. 20

"There can be little doubt that vaccinations appear to have caused a marked decrease in the number of people contracting certain contagious diseases."


The Watchtower, October 1, 1994, p. 31

"Would it be proper to accept a vaccination or some other medical injection containing albumin derived from human blood? Witnesses have long realized that this is a matter for private decision in accord with each one's Bible-trained conscience. Some Christians who feel that they can in good conscience accept such injections have noted that antibodies from the blood of a pregnant woman cross into the blood of the baby in her womb."
