On Thursday January 28th, 2021, shortly before midday, His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew was administered the COVID-19 Vaccine at the University Medical Center CAPA in Istanbul. His All-Holiness thanked the doctors and staff of the Medical Center, and through them, all frontline healthcare workers throughout the world for their self-sacrifice as they care for the infected and their loved ones. It is His All-Holiness’ fervent prayer that everyone gets vaccinated as soon as possible to contain this global and deadly virus.
May God bless His All Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew and His wise words of encouragement …….there is something I don’t understand though various Eastern Orthodox Patriarchs, Archbishops, Bishops, Priests are getting vaccinated and some Bishops, Hieromonks, Monks and Priests are telling us not to get vaccinated because there is a danger of salvation………I just don’t know what else to think of!!!
