Pope Suggests Getting Vaccinated Against COVID-19 Is a ‘Moral Obligation’

Pope Francis says the COVID-19 vaccine is “the most reasonable solution” for the prevention of the virus.

According to The Associated Press, Francis said in a speech Monday that individuals are responsible for taking care of themselves, “and this translates into respect for the health of those around us. Health care is a moral obligation.”

He argued individuals are letting “themselves be influenced by the ideology of the moment, often bolstered by baseless information or poorly documented facts.”
