Pope Francis called the coronavirus vaccination the ethical duty of every person. He compared refusal to vaccinate with suicide. As reported by "360" TV channel, the pontiff said this in an interview with journalist Fabio Marchese. The Pontiff noted that vaccination is not only a concern for one's life and health, but also a concern for those who are near. "Next week we will start vaccinating at the Vatican. I will also get vaccinated," Francis said. He recalled that when he was a child, children in the world were dying of polio. Many parents then dreamed of a vaccine. When the drug appeared, the children were given it with sugar. Many mothers are still grateful to the doctors that their child was saved. "I don't know why someone says, 'No, the vaccine is dangerous,' but if the doctors tell you that there is no danger, why not take it? These are suicidal tendencies that I cannot explain. Today we must all be vaccinated." - said the head of the Catholic Church. Pope Francis made his statement after the death of his personal physician Fabrizio Soccorsi. In recent years, he was treated for cancer, but the coronavirus infection suffered from it undermined his health. According to Vatican News, the 78-year-old doctor was taken to the Agostino Gemelli Hospital in Rome when he became very ill. Death came after complications associated with coronavirus infection. Soccorsi was a consultant to the Vatican's Office of Health and Hygiene and an expert in medical advice to the Congregation for Saints. In 2015, Pope Francis invited him to be his personal physician.
