‘All adults should be vaccinated’, says bishop


Salford’s Bishop John Arnold is urging Catholics to receive the Covid vaccine.


In a statement issues on Friday (10 December) he said: “All adults, who are able to do so, should be vaccinated.


“Pope Francis has reminded people of the duty to be vaccinated if they are able.


“The Church is clear that all Catholics can take any of the vaccines on offer with a clear conscience.


“Even if you are at a low risk of becoming seriously ill, being vaccinated will lower the risk of transmitting the virus to somebody else who might then have a severe reaction or even die.


“It is particularly important that those in our parishes, clergy and lay-people who visit those who are housebound or otherwise vulnerable are vaccinated.”
