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.

Many health professionals praised the gesture on social media.
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.
