Seventh-Day Adventists/Vaccinations

Question
Hi,

I think the SDA church has no official position on vaccinations. Is this the case?

Thanks,
Peter

Answer
Dear Brother Peter:

The SDA Church does have an official position on vaccinations. Vaccinations are not against Church teachings and so are allowed for members. The SDA Church also recognizes that some individual members may be opposed to vaccinations, but the Church is not. Those members who do not wish to be vaccinated or to have their children vaccinated are entitled to act accordingly without interference from the Church. Thanks for the question.

Have a Blessed Day,
Brother Sal

Expertise

I am privileged to be able to offer an alternative insight into the complicated world of Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) theology. I will rely heavily on the Bible, but will also consider history and use logic in exposing deficiencies in SDA teachings. I would ask anyone who is considering becoming a SDA or if you are already in the SDA church, but are searching for the truth, to please allow me to offer a different explanation for the claims of the SDA. Remember : "The truth will set you free" (John 8:32). I can answer your questions pertaining to the beliefs and history of the SDA. I am not able to answer questions concerning spirituality or church discipline.

Experience

I have extensively studied the theology of the Seventh-Day Adventists (SDA) for a number of years. I have many books and tape sets produced by experts in this field of study. I have debated current members of the SDA church. I have a great desire to help these people see the truth.
