From the USCCB: Moral Considerations Regarding the New Covid-19 Vaccines
Father, shine your light of Mercy upon your people by protecting us from the coronavirus,
and healing all of those who are afflicted with it. Father, we offer this prayer to you
in the name of your beloved Son, Jesus Christ our Lord! Amen.
Father, we ask that you give all of those serving on the frontlines of our war with the
Coronavirus, especially our health care professionals, wisdom and understanding,
and strength and courage to serve the cause of protecting and saving life.
We ask this in the name of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ our Lord! Amen.

Donate COVID-19 Plasma:
If you have fully recovered from COVID-19, you may be able to help patients currently fighting the infection by donating your plasma. Because you fought the infection, your plasma now contains COVID-19 antibodies. These antibodies provided one way for your immune system to fight the virus when you were sick, so your plasma may be able to be used to help others fight off the disease.
