Our Public health office put out a video with a Muslim doctor to encourage people to get their vaccine during Ramadan. I really hope those who are eligible follow her advice!I was browsing our national dashboard and had a look at the articles it has. It has an article about vaccinations and ramadan.
I am not a muslim, so it's outside my frame of reference of course, it never occured to me that this could be an issue. Our government made a video with an arabist / theologist / board member of a mosque to explain Islam's views on vaccinations. It was really interesting. There are no animal products in the vaccins so it is a halal product (and vegans don't have to worry either).
