SHARING IDEAS THAT DO GOOD

Cartoon character gets vaccinated

The Sesame Street character Big Bird announced that he had gotten his COVID-19 vaccine, just days after the US health authorities approved the Pfizer shot for children ages 5-11.

"My wing is feeling a little sore, but it’ll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy,” the supersized bird tweeted.

It was seemingly a joyous enough celebration for the childhood icon, who is perpetually 6 years old.

I grew up watching the Sesame Street puppets, and in fact I still have a tickle me Elmo and tickle me Cookie monster teddy. Apparently, this is the second time Big Bird has been part of a vaccine campaign. Let's hope it helps

Yes Marcus- we should be celebrating the vaccines. Imagine what would have happened without them. Good that Big Bird is making vaccination look like fun to help overcome vaccine hesitancy.
