Pope Francis Says Covid-19 Vaccination Is An Ethical Obligation

"I believe that ethically everyone should take the vaccine."

  • In a media interview, Pope Francis recently described Covid-19 vaccination as an “ethical choice.”
  • The Catholic leader urged everyone to receive inoculation so as not to put themselves and others at risk.
  • Vaccinations in Vatican has been scheduled to start next week and the pope already signed up for it.

Pope Francis has recently announced that he will be getting vaccinated against Covid-19 soon. According to the Roman Catholic pontiff, coronavirus vaccination is an ethical obligation for everyone.

In a recent interview with Canale 5, Pope Francis has once again emphasized the importance of vaccine amid the ongoing pandemic, even labeling those refusing it as displaying “suicidal denial.”

The pope told the media:

“I believe that ethically everyone should take the vaccine. It’s an ethical choice, because you are playing with health, life, but you are also playing with the lives of others. ”

He further went on:

“I don’t understand why some say, ‘No, vaccines are dangerous.’ If it is presented by doctors as a thing that can go well, that has no special dangers, why not take it? There is a suicidal denial that I wouldn’t know how to explain.”

Pope Francis likewise added that vaccinations will start in Vatican as early as next week. “I have booked myself in. It must be done,” he said.

In his Christmas message, Pope Francis also encouraged world leaders to ensure that everyone – especially the poor and vulnerable – will have access to the vaccine.

“May the Son of God renew in political and government leaders a spirit of international cooperation, starting with health care, so that all will be ensured access to vaccines and treatment,” the pope pointed out. “In the face of a challenge that knows no borders, we cannot erect walls. All of us are in the same boat.”
