Forced Vaccination: Did The Vatican Really Back Down?

Cardinal Bertello, the President of the Pontifical Commission for Vatican City State, issued a February 18 statement promising “alternative solutions” for Vatican employees who don't want to receive the Covid-19 vaccine.

They would not lose their jobs as initially suggested in a Vatican decree.

Bertello reacted after the Vatican was confronted with headlines like “No jab, no job: Vatican gets tough with Covid anti-vaxxers” (

Despite Bertello's denial, it is unlikely that the Vatican will relax its stances on forced vaccinations.

Pope Francis is a stain on the Chair of Peter. Be gone!
Even if they officially retract, corporate culture can be ruthless. You keep your job (for now), but suddenly all your employee reviews are bad and then you're fired for "poor performance". Good luck proving cause and effect, too.
So interesting. Thanks! What is an "alternative solution" in their mind, I wonder? And for once, thank you mainstream media. We know they wouldn't even consider changing their tune if it wasn't for you! #unprophetic
vatican should not be in the business of pushing vacines to anybody ,specially when they are not free of problems and has fetus abortion line ,is the Catholic church against abortion or not ?
