COVID-19 Vaccines

  • Mark also appeared on the Big Vaccine Conversation: London's Christian Communities discussion on 12 April to discuss why some Christians have concerns about vaccinations in general and the Covid vaccines in particular.

  • In this edition of the 1st incision podcast from 8 April 2021, Annika Wilder-Smith, Dr Laurence Crutchlow, and Steven Fouch discuss vaccine hesitancy, and look at why some Christians are either hesitant or actively opposed to vaccines in general, and Covid vaccines in particular.

  • CMF President, Prof. John Wyatt, and CMF Associate Head of Public Policy, Jennie Pollock, contributed to an Evangelical Alliance webinar on 10 December 2020 looking at the detailed ethical and practical issues around COVID vaccine. You can watch a recording of the entire event here
