Atlanta Church Forces its Congregants to Show Proof of Vaccination

Objectivity 3.5 | Credibility 4.3 | Relevance 4.4

Greater Piney Grove Baptist Church in DeKalb County, GA now requires its worshippers to show proof of full vaccination, have their temperature checked and sign a waiver before they are allowed to attend in-person services. Registration in advance to attend is also required. Senior pastor, Rev. William E. Flippin Sr. stated, “There are too many young people who won’t get the vaccine. The health of our congregation is the most critical.” He’s worried about people who are unvaccinated will spread the virus to others even though the vaccine is not 100% effective against the virus.
