Employees who refuse to comply with COVID-19 certification will be punished by the Vatican as they will not be paid.
Vatican staffers who are unable to prove they’d been jabbed or who refuse to pay for expensive negative COVID tests will be considered “unjustly absent” and paid no salary.
The new rules will go into force from October 1st onwards. Despite many Christians asserting a religious exemption to the vaccination, the Vatican itself is offering no such workaround.
Pope Francis has been a vehement supporter of the mass vaccination program, asserting that humanity “has a history of friendship with vaccines.”
“The Vatican has said that it considers it acceptable for Catholics to use vaccines, even those that use stem cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research,” reports the Mail.
