  • Vatican starts vaccinating Rome’s homeless against COVID-19

The Vatican began offering free vaccinations against COVID-19 to Rome's homeless on Wednesday.

It was in the Paul VI hall, where Vatican employees, starting with the Swiss Guard, were also vaccinated.

However, Pope Francis has invited those who normally participate in the retreat - cardinals living in Rome and the heads of Vatican offices - to arrange for their own personal retreat in prayer, said a written communique from the Vatican press office January 20.

Relax. Put your left arm like this.

About 25 homeless people who are looked after in facilities run by the office received their first dose, and more groups would be vaccinated in the coming days, a statement said.

Some were disabled, including one man in a wheelchair, who expressed satisfaction with the "extra security" provided by the vaccine, Vatican News reported.

"We thank the pope for this gift", said Mario.

Coordinating the initiative, Carlo Santoro of the Sant Egidio Community said it is in line with Pope Francis' belief that "No one is saved alone".

Santoro stressed how the coronavirus pandemic has affected even the simplest things like "receiving charity or a simple sandwich from shops that have closed".

The Vatican began its covid vaccination programme on 13 January, with Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, aged 84 and 93 respectively, among the first in the Vatican to receive the vaccine. Last Christmas, 4,000 Covid test swabs were provided for the homeless in Rome and medicines, masks and respirators donated worldwide.

Pope Francis said in a television interview earlier this month that everyone should get a jab.
