Hi - I know this subject was discussed before, but this question really bugs me...

Can we be eternally damned
by accepting a covid vaccine? If we do feel there's something dodgy about the C-19 plandemic, that big pharma is plotting against us and accepting the vactine is like being marked with a mark of the beast.... Are we doomed for eternal damnation once we get vaccinated?

I mean - from the orthodox point of view - can accepting the vaccine be an unforgivable sin, like e.g. suicide?

Let's say that I want to be vaccinated because of "sinful", ordinary needs - e.g. all-inclusive holidays in Greece, going out to a pub or a cinema, etc. - will I be damned if I get vaccinated?

And if a person who got a jab become ill later - but will be truly sorry, repent, confess, etc. - can he or she be saved?

It is a really important issue for me - can I get vaccinated and receive Holy Eucharist? Knowing that the drugs are made with cells of aborted children?

I just can't make a decission. We will have a chance to be vaccinated in a week - and I still can't make up my mind....

pros:
- I could visit a relative in a hospital, nursing home, etc.
- I wouldn't be able to transmit covid to anyone in the church
- I could use public transportation
- and meet with friends
- go abroad, go to a pub, etc.

cons:
- vaccines are made using aborted fetuses (a big ethical no-no)
- it's a one, big medical experiment, they cannot be trusted
- pharmaceutical companies and goverments keep lying to us - It's possible that there's no need to be vaccinated
