Translation from Yiddish, of a statement issued to the Charedi community, in Manchester, regarding the covid vaccine.
To many who ask after recently being asked by the elders and Maran of the generation shlita to demand and investigate about the proposed vaccine against the corona virus, and after researching and checking carefully the required responsibility and presenting my conclusions to Maran and Rabban Shlita, Rabbi Chaim Kanievsky Shlita, Rabbi Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Gershon Edelstein Shlita, Maran Rosh Yeshiva Chacham Shalom HaCohen Shlita, I hereby announce their opinion and on their behalf:
1. Anyone who can be vaccinated – it is right to do so. (From the experiment performed properly and according to all the parameters accepted and customary in the world of medicine it has been proven that there is no risk in receiving the vaccine).
2. Those suffering from allergies of all kinds, should consult their family doctor on how to get the vaccine under medical supervision.
3. Since the experiment was conducted among ages 16 and up, young people up to the above age who want to wait for the experiment of young people their age – they have something to rely on
