We read with great interest the article by Dr. Rashi (1), which explored an interesting topic regarding the ethics of, and approach to vaccinations in the Jewish community. This topic is not only relevant because of the rise of preventable childhood infections as a result of vaccine hesitancy, but also more notably due to the current vaccine reluctance surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
