Vaccination and Covid-19 test advice for the Muslim community during Ramadan

Story posted on

WILTSHIRE Council has offered reassurance to the Muslim community that having a Covid-19 vaccination or test during Ramadan does not invalidate fasting.

The council say, “If you’re a practicing Muslim and have a vaccination appointment during Ramadan (Monday 12 April – Wednesday 12 May), the current advice from the British Islamic Medical Association is that having the vaccine does not invalidate fasting, and all practising Muslims invited to be vaccinated in the coming weeks should do so.

“The British Islamic Medical Association have also confirmed the view of the majority of Islamic scholars is that taking polymerase chain reaction (PCR) or lateral flow device (LFD) tests during Ramadan does not invalidate the fast.”
