It is wrong to take money from any government agency with out having the right for it. Muslim should always be sincere , truthful and honest. 
'You need to return that money to its owners and if can not, then give it to the poor on behalf of the owners and not as a donation from you.

Wassalam.

Answers should be given with certain knowledge, and no one here (as far as I know!) has certain knowledge about everything that is happening outside of our experience or eyes. 

Also, no one can give certain knowledge about the long-term effects of a new substance or medication, even if there is no ill intent, until time passes and we come to understand the complexity of effects. Certainly there are many substances that were originally thought to be safe and now we know they are dangerous. 

So, basically, no one here can give a full answer to "is it safe". 

However, if you are unsure about whether or not you should receive a vaccine, I suggest (a) talking to researchers or health professionals about it, (b) considering your situation and people around you (for instance, are you in a high-risk profession or are people in your household particularly vulnerable) and making the best decision, and (c) if that does not work, do istikahra.

Sharia law is for Muslims who believe and obey Allah and not for non Muslims.

When Muslims want to implement the Islamic law which is known as Sharia law, it is their decision and no one can object on them as we don't object on people who opt to follow their own way of legislation in any part of the world. It is part of the basic rights to believe in your own faith and implement it.

Holding a government position  in secular countries is permissible for Muslims as far as they don't indulge in injustice or sinful acts.

It is allowed for every Muslim to serve his country in any field which does not do injustice on others. Your country's interest should be in the interest of people and should not support the aggressors who might be friendly with some of your political leaders. You as a Muslim are obliged to serve peaceful people in your country and every where, and never support injustice. Our case as Muslims is the justice for all human beings and even for everything. Justice for people of Palestine for example, might not be an aim for many western politicians, but we must do everything possible in peaceful and legal way to support justice. Muslim officer must be an ethical officer and not just a blind officer.

This question should come from the concerned government and the reply depends on the sect that they follow. In general, non Muslims living under Muslims rule have their freedom of worshiping provided it does not propagate among Muslims, polytheism or any anti Islam ideas.

Muslim is allowed to receive legal cash assistance and social services if he is entitled to it as a citizen in non Muslim countries from non Muslim governments. Muslim is required also to serve his country and society in every possible way as Islam teaches serving people especially your neighbors.

According to Quranic Verse 5:51, Muslim is not allowed to be a blind follower or blind servant for non Muslims who aim to weaken Islam and Muslims and oppress them.

Muslim public officer is obliged and responsible as a Muslim to serve his country and society in every possible way provided he does not take part or support injustice, discrimination and any unlawful act. Things which are legal in non Muslim countries but forbidden in Islam like abortion, alcohol, etc, must be avoided by the Muslim officer. You can leave it for other officers who do not have religious obligations against it.

Haraam is Haraam whether you are an officer or not. We as Muslims are responsible to avoid Haraam in every possible way.
