Even the friars of the Basilica of Saint Francis support the campaign for the anti-covid vaccine as a "global common good".

In an open letter signed by 145 religious leaders from around the world and made public yesterday, the Custos of the Sacred Convent of Assisi, Friar Marco Moroni, declares:
«The vaccine is for everyone and as soon as possible. The selfishness of a few threatens the planet and we cannot accept it. We still have time; we are one humanity and so we are called to walk together without fear, with courage, and without the "dread" of being left behind. We are becoming a humanity 'in pieces'. Ready to take care of our own small vegetable garden. Ready to close the doors of our homes. Ready to turn away by ourselves covering up the reality, the bitter reality: distrust, selfishness and suffering. We have forgotten the doctors and nurses who have lost their lives in recent months. These people fulfilled the law of love, shown by Jesus at the Last Supper: “There is no love greater than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends (Jn15.)”. It is in this way, as Blaise Pascal said, that "man infinitely surpasses man."

Among the other signatories of the open letter are: Martin Junge, Secretary General of the Lutheran World Federation, Thabo Makgoba, Anglican Archbishop of Cape Town, Jim Winkler, President of the National Council of Churches of the USA, Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury and Cardinal Peter Turkson, Prefect of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.
