The Facts

  • Big Bird, the fictional character from Sesame Street, tweeted that he had received his COVID-19 vaccine.

  • This comes after the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine was approved for children aged 5-11.


The Spin

Right narrative

The tweet constitutes government propaganda aimed at indoctrinating young children. Very few children die of COVID-19, and it remains unclear whether the benefit of vaccinating them outweights the risk.

Left narrative

Many children have been hospitalized and died of COVID-19; vaccination is the best protection. Using Big Bird is effective for teaching them the importance of health.
