He urged him to continue to help in the difficult fight against the pandemic, using his influence and capabilities to do this. Addressing Metropolitan Ioannina, the prime minister said:
“Please, Your Eminence, say in your next sermon that you do not want anyone not to be vaccinated. Speaking openly and clearly, you protect your flock, first of all our elderly fellow citizens. And all those who were not vaccinated during the first wave, now that they see that vaccines are not only effective, but completely safe, should hurry to do it. “
The Prime Minister of Greece is confident that the hierarchs of the Greek Orthodox Church should, during the sermon, encourage the believing people to be vaccinated. He asked them to make such an appeal to believers.
