Priest who turned a church into a vaccination centre: "I receive insulting messages"


A priest who turned a church in Crete into a vaccination centre received insulting messages for doing this.

"There are not many unvaccinated people in the village. But even if it is one, we must respect life and save it," stressed Father Andreas to MEGA.

"Everyone in the parish embraced it and applauded it, but on Facebook I receive insulting messages," the priest said.

According to him, COVID-19 is a great enemy of man and the only weapon that humanity has is the vaccine.

"I tried to help, to convince some people who have some doubts that the vaccine is a weapon that we should all use," he added.

Regarding the conspiracy theories about vaccination, he clarified that there should be respect for science as it is a purely medical issue.
