The head of the public relations department of the Patriarchate, Archpriest Andria Jagmaidze, says the Church cannot take responsibility for the promotion of the newly launched vaccination in Georgia, as it is the responsibility of health workers.
“With regard to vaccination, any person is free in his/her choice. The Church cannot take responsibility for the promotion of vaccination, as the above is the competence and responsibility of health workers,” he stated.
“The Church is currently guided by the February 11 decision of the Synod, which states that any person, regardless of his or her social status, public or private activities, should not be subjected to harassment, insult, or persecution in case of vaccination or non-vaccination,” he pointed out.
