Big Bird has some big news.
“I got the COVID-19 vaccine today!” said a post from the “Sesame Street” character’s official account on Saturday.
Everyone’s favorite walking, talking, giant yellow bird is 6-years-old, meaning he is finally eligible for the life saving jab, which was recently approved for kids ages 5 to 11-years-old.
Big Bird, Elmo and other Sesame Street characters appeared on CNN for a Saturday morning program called, “The ABCs of COVID Vaccines.”
“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!” Bird wrote on Twitter.

Rosita, a furry, turquoise, Mexican monster, was inoculated against COVID-19 Friday.
Unfortunately, Elmo — who is just 3 — isn’t yet old enough to get his COVID shot.
“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!” he tweeted early Saturday.
While Big Bird was excited about getting the jab, Sen. Ted Cruz seemed less than thrilled by it.
“Government propaganda…for your 5 year old!” the Texas Republican tweeted.
