St Stephen and the “Holy Vaccine”
A poster of St Stephen holding a “Holy Vaccine”, by the Rome street artist known as Maupal, is seen near the Vatican. Maupal told the newspaper Corriere della Sera that he chose St Stephen, whose feast day is December 26, after the Italian government said a Covid-19 vaccine might be available shortly after Christmas.
