Pope Francis pointed out this Wednesday that getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is a simple, but profound way to promote the common good and take care of each other, especially the most vulnerable.

In a video message, the Supreme Pontiff affirmed that vaccines bring hope to end the pandemic, but only if they are available to all and there is collaboration.

For the Pope, it is an "act of love" to immunize himself "with vaccines authorized by the competent authorities" and "to help the majority of the people to do so."

"Love is also social and political" because "it is universal, always overflowing with small gestures of personal charity capable of transforming and improving societies," said Francisco.

“I ask God so that each one can contribute their little grain of sand, their little gesture of love, no matter how small love is, it is always great. Contribute these small gestures for a better future ”, said the pope.
