I think the vaccine was developed using stem cells, and that is where the religious objection comes in. But the Pope referred to it as "morally unobjectionable", or something to that effect, so hopefully that will work.
Neither Pfizer or Moderna vaccines contain stem cells or fetal cell lines in production vaccine, i.e. the vaccine that is actually put into your arm. Fetal cell lines, thousands of generations distant from the original fetal cells they came from, were used in the proving process, but are not present in the production vaccines. The fetal cell lines originated from two fetuses aborted in the Netherlands in the early '70's.
"Were the Pfizer and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines developed using fetal cell lines? The mRNA COVID-19 vaccines produced by Pfizer and Moderna do not require the use of any fetal cell cultures in order to manufacture (produce) the vaccine. Early in the development of mRNA vaccine technology, fetal cells were used for “proof of concept” (to demonstrate how a cell could take up mRNA and produce the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein) or to characterize the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines were found to be ethically uncontroversial by the pro-life policy organization the Charlotte Lozier Institute. Further, the Secretariat of Pro-Life Activities, a committee within the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has stated: “neither Pfizer nor Moderna used an abortion-derived cell line in the development or production of the vaccine. However, such a cell line was used to test the efficacy of both vaccines. Thus, while neither vaccine is completely free from any use of abortion-derived cell lines, in these two cases the use is very remote from the initial evil of the abortion…one may receive any of the clinically recommended vaccines in good conscience with the assurance that reception of such vaccines does not involve immoral cooperation in abortion.”

Far as myself is concerned there is only one reason not to get it - medical health reason contraindicates taking it . . . however, that doesn't absolve them from having to take the established protocols to avoid being a vector, etc. . . .
There is only 1 of them that was developed somewhat in that fashion . . . Moderna & Phizer weren't . . . but even then none of them use any fetal tissue in and of itself . . .
Good article . . . thank ya . . .
Thanks for that! I love it when others do my homework for me.
