"We define ourselves as churches, living and working together for the common good of people and society, therefore we affirm our support for the Covid-19 vaccination and declare our trust in the safety and efficacy of it as a lifesaving tool which protects humans from severe sickness and death.
 
"Our affirmation is guided by the theology of ‘love for neighbours' to reach out to others and the theology of liberation to reduce the suffering of our neighbours inflicted by the pandemic," the council said.
 
The churches also note that a lot of misinformation is being circulated through social media that has lead to hesitancy of the public to get the vaccine, thereby endangering the lives of millions of people in PNG. 
 
The churches also recognise the negative social and economic impact that Covid-19 has caused in PNG resulting in the loss of lives and livelihood of Papua New Guineans.
