The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent development of COVID vaccines have resulted in unique challenges for nurses. Nurses are being asked to make recommendations about vaccinations that have only been available since December 2020 even as vaccine information evolves on an almost daily basis. Standards of professional care and a Christian perspective on nursing to help guide nurses’ practice in the current climate are discussed in this article. An overview of information and research findings published up to October 31, 2021 about COVID-19 vaccination is given to assist nurses in answering vaccination questions.
