Some Christian preachers are misleading their followers requesting them not to get the COVID-19 vaccine, saying the Bible had forbidden taking such vaccines, Sri Lanka National Christian Conference (SLNCC) said yesterday.

President of Sri Lanka National Christian Conference Bishop Janaka Kumaratunga told Daily Mirror that many preachers had been asking the people who attend their prayer sessions to resist vaccines.many who come up with this false advice are individual preachers rather than those who belong to religious denominations,” he said.

Do not get deceived by false interpreters of the Bible. Christians should not hesitate to get the vaccine,” he added. (Yohan Perera)

We had initially used the logo of the National Christian Council of Sri Lanka with this story but after being informed by the Council that they had no association with this story, it has been removed. We regret the error.

    This is madness, most of the religious leaders are advocating this. Some of the Muslim friends too are reluctant follow science. Truly shameful a sizable group of American Christians are oppose to this vaccine. It had gone to the Orthodox Christians and one of them is working for me. She refused to be vaccinated.
