Gus talks about his conversation yesterday with Fr. Tad Pacholczyk, director of education at the National Catholic Bioethics Center, and he reads the organization's statement on COVID-19 vaccine mandates. They continue to insist that vaccinations should always be on a voluntary basis and that nobody should be forced to be vaccinated against their will. Gus invites listeners to call in and talk about the vaccine, mandates and individual discernment.
Also, Gus talks about something we're hearing a lot about these days, comorbidity, which is the presence of two or more diseases or conditions in a medical patient. It's become present a lot in COVID patients and are often a contributing factor to the virus impairing people further and can result in their death. Gus asks people to call in and talk about any lifestyle they changed as a result of the pandemic.
