The Vatican says that Pope Francis has received the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

However, the statement doesn’t say when the pope was vaccinated.

It adds that Pope Emeritus Benedict was also vaccinated.

Vatican City began its vaccine program on Wednesday in a medical center set up inside its main auditorium hall.

That’s where Pope Francis often holds his weekly general Wednesday audiences.
