Anti Vax movement had been a problem around the world. Even if these people slow down the eradication of the pandemic. Some crowd believed them because they want to rebel. Some people I know died because they believed things they read online.
They are spreading misinformation on social media and it manipulated some impressionable people. When my government offered free vaccinations, I grabbed the opportunity! I experienced some inflammation in my arm for a week but it came back to normal. Buildings in my town don’t allow unvaccinated people to enter. Now I can go to malls, restaurants, and groceries without worries. Getting jabbed in the arm made me feel healthier because I lost my colds after the vaccination.
To combat the Misinformation of Covid deniers and Anti Vax peddlers, Sesame Street, steps up to battle misinformation. Two of their biggest stars decided to spread the word b getting the vaccine. Using your fame as a platform to combat misinformation is very admirable. Children don’t use Twitter but their parents do and a lot of parents follow accounts from Sesame Street.
Here are the Tweets of Big Bird and Elmo about getting vaccinated.
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!

Elmo was so happy to talk to @DrSanjayGupta at the town hall today! Elmo learned that Elmo's friends can get the COVID-19 vaccine now, and soon Elmo can too!

Hippy Karens who believes in the power of Crystals and Essential oils are livid that these big stars are spreading correct information. Social Network giant Facebook was in hot water a month ago because of all the fake news and misinformation that became widespread on the site. Fake news and conspiracies about Covid had been rampant on Facebook that one of my aunts believes them.
Herd immunity is something that the world should achieve to end the pandemic. The crowd who got manipulated by the fake news online keeps the pandemic growing. Some people refuse to wear a mask and deny the existence of the virus. It makes it worst when people in power like Senator Ted Cruz are being against vaccines.
Government propaganda…for your 5 year old! https://t.co/lKUlomnpq1
