Vaccinations Permissible during Ramadan Fasting
The fatwa states that COVID-19 vaccinations do not invalidate the fast because it is administered by intramuscular injection.
COVID-19 vaccinations will continuously be carried out day and night throughout the fasting month of Ramadan. Discipline is still needed to ensure that the number of COVID-19 cases, which are now starting to fall, do not increase again.
JAKARTA, KOMPAS – COVID-19 vaccination during the month of Ramadan is planned to take place from day to night. In addition to providing alternatives for the public, this move is expected to accelerate the expansion of vaccination coverage in the country.
