Vaxie or Vaxxie (vaccine/vaccination selfie)

The COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic resulted in vaccines. People took vaccine/vaccination selfies, which were dubbed a “vaxxie” (or, less frequently, “vaxie").

“Nothing like getting syringed in a Valley car park #flushot #vaccination #vaxxie #selfie… https://instagram.com/p/BSm-1i6lnAo/” was posted on Twitter by Wendy on April 7, 2017.

“COVID-19 vaccine selfies (Vaxies? Self-Vs?) will soon take over our feeds” was posted on Twitter by Liza Dixon on December 14, 2020. “Mark my words: the vaccination selfie (vaxie?) is going to be a huge thing on #social #media in the next few weeks/months. #coronavirus #Covid_19 #covid” was posted on Twitter by Arnout Karssenberg on December 17, 2020.

“Alan Alda suggests Dr Fauci should take a selfie when he gets his #covid19 vaccine and ‘post it to the web.’ ‘Instead of a selfie it’s a vaxxie!’ Alda says” was posted on Twitter by Meg Tirrell on December 28, 2020. Alan Alda is an American actor known for playing a doctor on the television show M*A*S*H.

What a great way to promote the vaccine. Vaxxies are a lot better than selfies swallowing Tide Pods and all

Listening to @alanalda and Dr Fauci talking about restoring faith in public science agencies on Facebook Live hosted by Duke Science & Society. Good stuff! They recommend taking a selfie of yourself getting the vaccine and posting it - take a Vaxie and share. Great idea!

The latest social media trend involves no ice buckets, no filters and certainly no sea shanties. Now celebrities and politicians around the world are vying to post the best “vaxxies” – selfies of the moment they receive their Covid-19 vaccination.

‘Vaxxies’: vaccine selfies sweep the internet in hopes of curbing anti-vaxxer misinformation
By Malavika Pradeep

Social media is a great advertising tool. It hits us up with new trends and challenges—in turn triggering our ‘fear of missing out’ to persuade us to jump on the bandwagon. Social media’s latest trend involves posting ‘vaxxies’ or ‘vaccination selfies’ in hopes of curbing anti-vaxxer misinformation while encouraging those on the fence about getting vaccinated.

We need a special name for a “vaccine selfie.”
Vaxie? Nah, lame.
Shotty? No, sounds too close to something else.
Pokey? Nope, too twee.
Stabby? Stabby. That’ll do.

A few weeks ago, we asked you to send us your “vaxxies”—aka vaccine selfies. We’re happy so many of you sent in your pics (and that you’ve been vaccinated). In no particular order, here’s a few.

vaxies
Everyone knows what a selfie is. A vaxie is a self-congratulatory selfie you post to Facebook after each dose of your COVID vaccine. Posting your side effects in great detail earns you extra good citizen points. Posting a vaxie is way cooler than say… posting images from your last colonoscopy (which also shows your audience how brave and awesome you are, but it’s not as trendy).
Surely the vaxies I just posted on social media will inspire everyone to be as wonderful as I am!

Vaccine selfies have become common in recent days amid the push to get vaccinate by Gen X’ers.
Love them or hate them, Gen X’ers’ vaccine selfies — or ‘vaxxies’ — may be the marketing campaign we needed

By Douglas Quan Vancouver Bureau
Thu., April 22, 2021
If you’ve spent any time on social media this week, you’ve come across scores of selfies from Gen X’ers — sleeves rolled up to their shoulders — receiving hand-clapping emojis and other kudos for getting their AstraZeneca jabs.

Vaxxies (That’s Vaccine Selfies) and ‘Vaccine-Ready’ Clothes Are Now Officially A Thing
These celebrities are leading the ‘vaxxie’ charge on social media – and now fashion brands are getting in on the act, too...

BY LAURA ANTONIA JORDAN | POSTED ON 06 04 2021 (This appears to be May 4, 2021.—ed.)
Welcome to the latest chapter of Strange Times on Planet Earth. In 2021, when it comes to Instagrammable accessories, ‘It’ bags and status shoes pale in comparison to the ‘I’ve had my Covid vaccination’ sticker. Meanwhile the vaccination selfie – or ‘vaxxie’, yet another addition to your pandemic lexicon – has become a social media moment. The doctor’s couch is the new changing room/pink wall/exotic beach.

While vaccine selfies — or “vaxxies” — may be a new phenomenon, however, they’re also part of a long tradition.

Dolly Parton, Mariah Carey and Arnold Schwarzenegger are among those who have posted videos or images showing themselves getting a COVID shot. Politicians are also posting online after they roll up their sleeves and — in some cases — unbutton their shirts. Ministers in Greece, France and England have been teased and praised for baring their humanity.
