Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew sent a message in favor of the vaccination against the coronavirus, describing it as “completely absurd and unjust” for some to be afraid to get the vaccine.
“It is completely absurd and unfair for some people to be afraid to get the vaccine. There is no reasonable excuse. I call again for everyone to be vaccinated without reservation. In order to avoid possible serious dangers that will lead them to death “, the Patriarch noted in the interview he gave to MEGA and Andreas Robopoulos.
“We as a church, as a religion, as the Ecumenical Patriarchate in particular, respect science, the representatives of science, the findings and discoveries of science and conform our lives to them,” he added.
Regarding the pandemic deniers and the vaccinators, Mr. Bartholomew said that “they do not think correctly and do not think logically and do injustice to themselves and their fellow human beings. Because they can transmit the coronavirus to their fellow human beings without realizing it. There is a great danger. “
