The Vatican’s COVID-19 vaccine rollout began Wednesday in the Paul VI Hall in Vatican City, Matteo Bruni, the director of the Holy See Press Office, confirmed in a statement.

The Vatican has said it will give vaccine priority to health care and public safety personnel, gli anziani, and those who come into contact with the public most often.

Francis has been vocal in his support of the vaccine, declaring it anethical dutyfor everyone to get vaccinated durante un'intervista with Italian TV station Canale 5 di domenica.

I really don’t understand why some people say this could be a dangerous vaccine,” Egli ha detto. “If doctors say it can work well and you don’t have special dangers, why not take it? There is a suicidal denialism that I would not know how to explain, but the vaccine must be taken.
