The Vatican has started vaccination against coronavirus infection. This was announced on Wednesday, January 13, by the head of the press service of the Holy See, Matteo Bruni.

Vaccination takes place in the hall of the Paul VI Hall, reports the Vatican News portal.

The vaccine on a priority basis will be able to receive employees of health care and public security, the elderly, as well as personnel who are most often in contact with the population, says RT.

Earlier, on December 24, the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, announced that the first batches of vaccine from the American pharmaceutical corporation Pfizer and the German company BioNTech were sent to 27 countries of the European Union. In the EU, vaccination against COVID-19 began on December 27, 28 and 29.

Earlier on January 13, the European Commission (EC) told Izvestia that in the near future the European Union has no plans to change its visa issuance policy and make vaccination against COVID-19 a prerequisite for obtaining them.

According to a representative of the EC press service, vaccination certificates can be useful for tourists by freeing them from the need to take tests and observe quarantine after arrival, according to the website

The spread of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes the COVID-19 disease, began at the end of December 2019. The Chinese city of Wuhan became the hotbed of infection. For several months, the disease has spread to more than 210 countries of the world. On March 11, WHO declared a coronavirus pandemic.
