PBS Using the Muppets (and YOUR Tax Dollars) to Push COVID Vaccines on Kids

Public broadcasting is using the famed Muppets to push vaccines on kids after the Pfizer vaccine was approved for children between the ages of 5 and 11 last week.

The Muppets from PBS and HBO’s “Sesame Street” jumped into high gear to push the vaccine on parents and little kids over the weekend. One of the early efforts to push vaccines on kids was a tweet using the Big Bird character.

In the tweet, PBS pretended that Big Bird got the vax, saying, “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.”

One has to wonder just who this is aimed at. A six-year-old cannot make his own health decisions. That decision is for his parents to make. Unless, of course, that the goal is to further enthrall little kids to trust state-run cartoon characters instead of their parents.

Probably that.

Oscar the Grouch also got in the game:

In addition to social media posts, Big Bird, Elmo, Grover and more Muppets held a fake “town hall” with CNN anchors, to take fake questions supposedly from children about the vaccines and the coronavirus.
