The latest vaccine supporter has emerged as Pope. Adding his opinion to the campaign, Pope Francis talked about overcoming skepticism surrounding vaccination and issued a public service announcement encouraging people that vaccines are effective, safe and an act of love.

The message in video form was released on Wednesday and was aimed at the audience worldwide, but it was mainly focused on Americans. The video featured archbishops and six cardinals from South America, Central and North America. The video was produced by the Vatican ad council.
