Bishop John encourages take-up of vaccination

February 16, 2021

‘Stay safe – get vaccinated’. That’s the message from the College of Bishops of the Scottish Episcopal Church, as the Covid-19 vaccination programme is rolled out across the country.

The Rt Rev Dr John Armes, Bishop of Edinburgh, showed the College’s lead when he received his jab at the NHS Scotland Vaccination Centre in Morrison Street, Edinburgh this week.

Bishop John recorded a short video message of encouragement to others as he entered the Vaccination Centre – better known as the Edinburgh International Conference Centre – and then again as he emerged, post vaccination. You can see it here.
