Vaccinations can be a touchy subject, but Elmo brings it down to a kid’s level, and makes a lot of sense. Sesame Street collaborated with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services and the Daily Dot to create this short video about being vaccinated.
Elmo is nervous about getting a shot and US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy explains why vaccinations are necessary. “Do you carry an umbrella when it rains? Do you wear a helmet when you ride a tricycle?,” he asks. “Just like an umbrella protects you from the rain… a vaccine protects you from germs.”
