Pope Francis has actually stated that getting immunized versus COVID-19 is an “act of love” as he contacted individuals to get inoculated.
“Thanks to God and to the work of many, today we have vaccines to protect us from Covid-19,” the pope stated in a video message in Spanish launched on Wednesday.
“These give us hope to come out of this pandemic, but only if they are available to all and if we work together. To get inoculated with vaccines approved by the relevant authorities is an act of love,” the 84-year-old stated.
“Getting vaccinated is a simple but impactful way to promote the common good and take care of each other, especially of the most vulnerable,” the pope continued.
The video was launched as part of the global project “De ti depende” – “It depends on you” in Spanish – to promote vaccinations versus Covid -19. Several high ranking Catholic figures from throughout the Americas are likewise part of the project.
