Mexico City, Mexico, Aug 23, 2021 / 16:00 pm
The Archdiocese of Mexico called Sunday on the faithful voluntarily to get vaccinated against COVID-19, but is currently not considering making it mandatory for clerics or employees.
In an Aug. 22 editorial in its publication Desde la Fe entitled "It depends on us," the Mexico City archdiocese referred to the recent video in which Pope Francis says that "getting vaccinated is an option of love for all, especially the most vulnerable."
Other cardinals and bishops appear in the video as well, including Carlos Cardinal Aguiar Retes of Mexico.
The archdiocese said Aug. 22 that “accordingly, we call on the population, especially believers, to go get vaccinated and not get carried away by fake news, which seeks to create confusion and doubts about the effectiveness of vaccines.”
