Fatwa on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Vaccine While Fasting

NOTE: It should be noted that the below answer is the English translation of the Fatwa issued by Darul Ifta Jamia Uloom Islamia Allama Yusuf Banuri Town, Karachi, Pakistan.


 Is it permissible to take the COVID-19 vaccine while fasting during Ramadan?


Taking the COVID-19 vaccine does not invalidate the Ramadan fast. Injections taken either intravenously or intramuscularly do not break the fast. Since the coronavirus vaccine is given by syringe/injection, it does not render the fast void.

فی الفتاوی الشامیۃ:

“لأنه أثر داخل من المسام الذي هو خلل البدن، و المفطر إنما هو الداخل من المنافذ للإتفاق على أن من اغتسل في ماء فوجد برده في باطنه أنه لايفطر، و إنما كره الإمام”. ( ٢ / ٣٩٥)

و فی الفتاوی الھندیۃ:

“و ما يدخل من مسام البدن من الدهن لايفطر”. ( ١ / ٢٠٣)
