The nonprofit education group behind Sesame Street has released a PSA showing Elmo, who is 3.5 years old, has just been vaccinated.
“You were superduper today getting your COVID vaccine Elmo,” said Louie, Elmo’s father in the PSA.
“There was a little pinch, but that was okay. Elmo was really happy to have papa and baby David with him,” Elmo said.
Moderna and Pfizer vaccines received emergency use approval for children as young as six months old in the United States this month.
A Sesame Workshop spokeswoman says she hopes the PSA will inspire parents and caregivers across the country to talk to their healthcare providers and seek information about how the vaccines can keep young children and their families healthy.
