Cheryl Calire's Statement for Channel 7
In line with the USCCB, Executive Director of Pastoral Ministries for the Diocese of Buffalo, Cheryl Calire has emphasized; “ As Catholics, if we have a choice, we should be choosing the two dose Pfizer or Moderna at this time, however, people need to form their conscience and consult with their physician for their own personal circumstances. In addition, we should continue to encourage pharmaceutical companies to stop the use of abortion derived fetal cell lines. It is morally permissible to be vaccinated, based on the alternatives given.”
