The Biden administration has recruited Sesame Street characters to push Covid-19 mRNA vaccinations for children.
Big Bird, the 8′-2″ longtime Sesame Street resident, was reportedly recruited to push the vaccines because he is only 6 years old.
The FDA approved the mRNA vaccines for children ages 5-11 last week. Big Bird tweeted on Saturday:
“I got the Covid-19 vaccine today! My wing is feeling a little sore, but it’ll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy.”
“Good on ya, @BigBird,” Joe Biden tweeted Sunday night. “Getting vaccinated is the best way to keep your whole neighborhood safe.”
Senator Ted Cruz retweeted Big Bird’s post with the caption, “Government propaganda … for your 5 year old!”
