While many children are wearing “Hidin’ from Biden” t-shirts, Sesame Street’s Big Bird is getting vaccinated against COVID-19.
Big Bird, who has a blue check, Tweeted out his vaccine status to encourage children ages 5-12 to get vaccinated too.
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.
Ms. @EricaRHill even said I’ve been getting vaccines since I was a little bird. I had no idea!

After the news broke, Senator Ted Cruz accused Big Bird of fueling government propaganda.
And he has filed a bill that would block the federal government and public schools from requiring COVID-19 vaccines for children.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis also said Monday morning that he is strengthening the Parents’ Bill of Rights so that parents will be able to sue school districts that fail to follow the state’s order on mandates and allow parents to seek reimbursement for their attorney fees from the school districts.
Meanwhile, the former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb says the COVID pandemic could be all over by January 2022, before Biden’s private company vaccine mandate goes into effect on Jan. 4th.
