VIDEO: Disney Using The Muppets to Promote COVID-19 Vaccinations

The Disney Parks Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Pam Hymel, penned a letter on the Disney Parks Blog today beseeching guests to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

“All around us, we see signs of hope – cast members coming back to work, guests returning to Disney destinations, and local businesses are beginning to reopen again,” Dr. Hymel said, “As we move into this new phase of recovery, we know from medical experts that a strong step forward toward returning to a sense of “normal” is getting vaccinated – just like these two special members of our Disney family.”

“Like Gonzo and Pepe, I’m a big advocate for vaccines,” said Dr. Hymel.
