The news is out: [VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Both Pope Francis and ex Pope Benedict have received the first dose of a vaccine against coronavirus, the Vatican said on Thursday.
The 84-year-old pope and the 93-year-old former pope, got their jabs as part of a Vatican vaccination program that began on Wednesday.
Both men are vulnerable to contracting the virus because of their age.
Francis is perhaps more at risk because part of one of his lungs was removed following an illness when he was a young man in his native Argentina.
Benedict is frail and suffering from a number of ailments related to old age, such as arthritis.]
Did Pope Francis and ex Pope Benedict say “thank you Jesus” after receiving the vaccine. What’s the point of having an all-powerful fairy who cannot protect you from a little virus? Science wins again over the delusion inherited from a gang of goat herders from 2,000 years ago.
