The Pope Francisco today reiterated its position in favor of vaccination against COVID-19 and said today that when we were children “they gave us vaccinations and no one said anything,” as he pointed out during the press conference on the return flight from his trip to Budapest and Slovakia.
“It is a bit strange” that now people do not want to be vaccinated when “we have a long history” of vaccinations such as polio or measles, the pope told reporters. Although he explained that perhaps the anti-vaccines have been carried away “by the uncertainty and by the great diversity of vaccines, some with a reputation for being even distilled water” or, he added, by the false news that they inoculated the virus.
He remembered that even “within the College of Cardinals some are deniers and one ended up admitted” by the coronavirus. He was referring to the American Cardinal Raymond Burke, who was hospitalized for several weeks and who expressed positions against vaccines.
“You have to clarify and speak with serenity”added the Pope, who stressed: “In the Vatican we are all vaccinated except for a small group who are studying how to help them.”
Pope Francis has made several calls for people to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, considering it “an act of love.”
