Pope Francis Received the Coronavirus Vaccine, Vatican Reveals

Pope Francis has been given the Coronavirus vaccine, the Vatican revealed.

Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said in a statement that he was “able to confirm that within the vaccine program of the Vatican City State, to this date the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine has been administered to Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus,” CNN reports.

Former Pope Benedict has also been vaccinated against COVID-19 as well.

The statement did not reveal when the pair were vaccinated.

“I believe that ethically everyone should take the vaccine. It is not an option, it is an ethical choice because you are gambling with your health, with your life, but you are also gambling with the lives of others,” the pontiff previously said in an interview.

Find out which other celebrities and public figures were given the vaccine.
