Only 350 residents of the monasteries of Mount Athos have been vaccinated against coronavirus, Greek newspaper reports. “Romfeya”…
The publication reported that the “inhabitants of Athos” say that “of the two thousand monks of the Mountain, about 1650 were not vaccinated.”
“In addition, most monasteries do not discuss vaccines,” writes Romfeya, and clarifies that there are monasteries on Athos that only admit those who have been vaccinated into their territory.
Vaccination on the holy Mount Athos began on March 19. According to information from the site makthes.gr, (Newspaper Macedonia, on which referred at the Romphea agency), the monks were overjoyed that the vaccination had begun. According to the authors of the publication, deniers and supporters of conspiracy theories have changed their point of view, and the monks, they say, are persistently asking to be vaccinated.
Nevertheless, by September the situation did not really move from the “dead center”, which means that the information about the monks’ desire to be vaccinated turned out to be “somewhat” exaggerated.
