POPE VISITS HOMELESS, POOR AS THEY RECEIVE VACCINE

POPE VISITS HOMELESS, POOR AS THEY RECEIVE VACCINE

This morning, Good Friday, shortly before 10.00, Pope Francis went to the atrium of the Paul VI Hall as the vaccinations of some homeless people or people in difficulty were being carried out. They have been welomed to the Vatican in recent days and accompanied to the vaccination area by some Roman associations. The Holy Father Pope greeted the doctors and nurses, followed the procedure for preparing the vaccine doses and spoke to some of the people awaiting vaccination.

To date, about 800 of the approximately 1,200 people in need who will be given the vaccine this week have been vaccinated with the first dose.
