The pastor receives the vaccine
On Sunday, Ashimolowo, whose church has branches in Nigeria and the United Kingdom, posted photos on social media of his vaccination.
“Today, I received the vaccination. Very easy and quick to do. I strongly encourage all BAME (Black, Asian, and ethnic minority) people to get vaccinated. Save people’s lives. Keep yourself safe. Take precautions. This is something we must do. Let’s go,” the Nigerian pastor in the United Kingdom captioned photos of his vaccination on Facebook.
Many conspiracy theories about the safety of vaccines have been circulated, particularly on social media. Some have also debated whether or not Christians and African-Americans should receive vaccines.
“COVID-19 vaccination reduces your risk of severe infection and the need for admission to the Intensive Care Unit,” the church said in a statement.
“Evidence is becoming available that vaccination will prevent transmission of the COVID-19 virus.
“The known benefits of COVID-19 vaccinations outweigh the known and potential risks.
“The vaccines do not cause COVID-19 because they do not contain the Coronavirus.
“Taking the vaccine will protect you and other people, especially those that are at significant risk of severe infection.”
With millions of coronavirus-associated deaths recorded globally in the last one year, the need for vaccination cannot be over-emphasised.
