Big Bird got 'vaccinated' against COVID-19, drawing outrage from Republicans

From NPR | Politics by Rachel Treisman

Big Bird ruffled some conservatives' feathers this weekend by announcing that he had been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The beloved Muppet tweeted on Saturday that he had gotten the shot, which is newly available for Americans between the ages of 5 and 11. Big Bird has been a fixture of children's television since 1969 but is officially 6 years old.

"My wing is feeling a little sore, but it'll give my body an extra protective boost that keeps me and others healthy," he wrote.
