Divine Intervention



In the debate over vaccinations ("'Felt Severely,'" Aug. 26), I've read quotes from people declining to be vaccinated because "they believe in God."

Which makes me wonder, to which God are they referring?

I know that, during the early months of the pandemic, millions of people around the world prayed that a vaccine would be developed. I know many, if not all, scientists and researchers of faith prayed that God would guide their hand as they devoted countless hours, days, months to develop a vaccine. I know that even non-believers would agree that the successful development of the vaccines in record time was nothing short of miraculous! 

So, I have to ask: Why would any pious person decline a vaccine that is clearly a godsend?
