With the omicron variant spreading globally, the Vatican issued a statement reaffirming support for COVID-19 vaccines.

“Following today’s publication of the new documents of the Vatican COVID-19 Commission and the Pontifical Academy for Life, one year after the publication of the Note on the same topic by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the official communiqué of the Pontifical Academies of Sciences and Social Sciences, it seems appropriate to reaffirm the Holy See’s position in favor of vaccines.” 

They touched on Pope Francis calling vaccination an ‘act of love.’

“The Holy Father has defined vaccination as ‘an act of love,’ since it is aimed at the protection of people against COVID-19. In addition, he recently reiterated the need for the international community to further intensify its cooperation efforts so that all have rapid access to vaccines, not as a matter of convenience, but of justice.” 

Pope Francis previously made a public service announcement supporting COVID-19 vaccinations for all which you can watch here.

Pope Francis and Pope Benedict XVI themselves also just recently received their booster shot.
