A god-given coincidence? A nurse with surname Theoulis – Little God – gave the Bishop of Nafpaktos the Covid-19 vaccine on Sunday.
Speaking to media on Monday morning, Bishop of Nafpaktos and Agios Vlasios Ierotheors revealed the “incredible coincidence” as he said, that the name of the nurse who gave him the shot was Theoulis.
Bishop Ierotheos was inoculated on Sunday at Evangelismos hospital representing the Archbishop of Athens and whole Greece who could not receive the vaccine as he is still recovering from Covid-19.
Bishop Ierotheos was the first member of the clergy to receive the vaccine.
He said that he did not even feel the needle pick and that he had no side effects whatsoever.
Speaking to ANT1, the Bishop said “we are at war” and that that “medicine and theology are two different things.”
Greece launched the vaccination program on Sunday with members of the government and state officials to receive the jab in front of cameras. It was supposed to be a symbolic action to convince the citizens to join the program.
Vaccinations continue on Monday in five reference hospitals in Athens with health-workers to be on priority list.
Vaccines are also been transported to hospitals in four cities for the vaccination of health-workers in Patras, Thessaloniki, Ioannina and Larissa.
Health experts warn that vaccinations do not mean that the pandemic is over and people should abandon protection measures.
