When it comes to the question of Pope Francis getting a third COVID-19 vaccine shot, the Vatican is caught between a rock and a hard place. The Vatican has traditionally spoken out for poor countries, many of which have been able to get very little vaccine, so few of their people are vaccinated against COVID-19. The church has joined calls from the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank and the World Health Organization to provide more vaccines to developing countries. Only 1.9% of people in low-income countries have received at least one shot of the vaccine, while 63% of Americans have received at least one shot. In Italy, 73% of the population is vaccinated.
