Golden Globes Award Show Rolled Out Flu Shots for Celebrity Audience, Anti-Vaxxers Aren’t Laughing

Golden Globe hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh brought out people identified as ‘nurses’ and told the audience to roll up their sleeves for flu shots. The hosts said the show spent $50,000 on vaccines to be administered by nurses, but later reports indicated that it was not a real flu vaccine. The point of the whole bit was to call out anti-vaxxers who have been falsely blamed for recent outbreaks of measles and to use ignorant celebrities as role models to convince TV viewers to accept vaccines.  Many health professionals praised the gesture on social media.

Anti-vaxxers who tuned in to the Golden Globes on Sunday night took issue with one specific bit.

As LMFAO’s song “Shots” started playing, hosts Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh brought out people identified as nurses and told the audience to roll up their sleeves for flu shots. (It’s unclear if the shots were real, as one of the people administering them was comedy writer Bowen Yang.)

“You know you wore a sleeveless gown for a reason,” Oh told her fellow actresses.

While health professionals praised the gesture — real or not — on social media, those opposed to vaccinating their children had the opposite reaction.

“If you are an anti-vaxxer, just put a napkin on — perhaps over — your head and we will skip you,” Samberg told the Golden Globes crowd.

Heeding his advice to distinguish themselves, anti-vaxxers watching at home started posting selfies with napkins on their heads.

“I will proudly put a napkin on my head. Kids are dying because of these shots! Wake up, America! Can you not see it,” one woman wrote on Facebook, calling the segment “pathetic on so many levels.”
