Big Bird, who is supposed to be 6 years old, also tweeted that he was vaccinated.

“My wing hurts a little, but it will give my body an additional protective impulse that will keep me and others healthy.” tweet said

According to Fox & Friends co-hosts Rachel Campos-Duffy and Will Kane, this amounted to “propaganda.”

“We talked a little here earlier about mandates, the authoritarianism that we see infiltrating our society and our culture, and what worries us most is that we see how our children are treated,” Campos said. -Duffy.

She noted that some parents were upset that their children were required to wear masks to protect against the spread of COVID-19.

Campos-Duffy said it looked “like Big Pharma’s ad on Sesame Street”:

Cain criticized Big Bird’s tweet and then falsely stated that children were not at risk of serious COVID-19 illness.

“The science behind the risk of COVID infection in children is so obvious and clear. They are not at risk of transmission or serious illness from COVID. And yet, as you point out, there is so little, no real long-term study of the impact on children, ”he said. “And yet, this type of propaganda is like, oh yeah, that’s definitely what we need to do.”

Although they are less likely to become seriously ill than adults, children are at risk of contracting COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last month that 66 children between the ages of 5 and 11 died from COVID-19 in the US and 8,300 were hospitalized. A third of them were admitted to the intensive care unit.

Children can also transmit the virus, and infections are on the rise in the 5-11 age group, according to the CDC. Clinical trials have shown that the vaccine is safe and 90.7% effective in preventing COVID-19 for children of this age.

The battle with Sesame Street got Conservatives on and off Fox News. On Saturday, vaccinated Senator Ted Cruz (Texas) and others on the right grabbed pearls over Big Bird’s tweet, accusing the children’s program of propaganda and brainwashing of children.

Big Bird taught children about vaccines long before the current conservative culture war against them. In a 1972 episode, Big Bird and Mr. Snufflupagus talked about measles vaccination.
