‘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!’

The announcement comes just days after the CDC recommended children ages 5-11 get the vaccine. Big Bird and other beloved ‘Sesame Street’ characters spoke to CNN’s Sanjay Gupta and Erica Hill about how nervous they were to get the vaccine. Big Bird’s tweet did get backlash from Sen. Ted Cruz, who called it ‘government propaganda.’
