Freedom Shot (Covid vaccination nickname)

The 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic led to vaccinations, sometimes called the “freedom shot.” The term “freedom shot” is a reminder of the gunshots of the battles of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, called “The shot heard round the world.” “Freedom shot” is often used jocularly.
“Once there is a vaccine, getting inoculated will be called ‘getting a freedom shot’ in the #USA” was posted on Twitter by Itkovian on April 3, 2020. “We’re ready for our freedom shots Mr. President administered by the military!!” was posted on Twitter by Christopher Greene on May 17, 2020. “Freedom shots” was entered in the Urban Dictionary on November 23, 2020.
“Freedom mask” (face mask) is a similar “freedom” term.
Wikipedia: COVID-19 pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, is an ongoing pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), first identified in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. The outbreak was declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern in January 2020 and a pandemic in March 2020.
Once there is a vaccine, getting inoculated will be called “getting a freedom shot” in the #USA.

Maybe if we brand the vaccine the Trump Freedom Shot and give out little shot glasses engraved with the American flag with every injection, we can get anti-vaxxers to take it.

That vaccine can’t call itself a vaccine though. It’s a properly branded “Freedom Shot”

freedom shots
A coronavirus vaccine is known as a “freedom shot.” People who get freedom shots gain immunity from the big ‘rona and are free to roam this land. Despite fears of being injected tracking microchips from big tech CCP shill Bill Gates, freedom shots are widely accepted as they are the only way life can get back to normal again.

I vote we call the COVID vaccine the “Freedom Shot” or the “Trump Vaccine” to improve the effectiveness in rural America

That’s how you get “Americans” to take the vaccine.

Both are just marketing problems. Call the organic food “junk food,” and the vaccine a “freedom shot.” Problems solved.

I wonder.  If we start calling the COVID 19 vaccines “Freedom Shots” would more people accept it? 
Everyone!  Get your shot of Freedom and Save the USA!

If they’re going to blitz the public with ‘freedom shot’ propaganda, they really should think harder about the public faces they’re using to sell the idea

It’s going to take a long time to undo the brainwashing in alot of Trump’s supporters, who have chosen to listen to him over Doctors and Scientists. Just tell them it’s a “Freedom Shot” and they’re not ‘Murican if they don’t take it.

Center for Discovery secures 900 vaccines, has few coronavirus cases, no deaths a year into pandmic
Daniel Axelrod
January 26, 2021
HARRIS – Parents are already cracking smiles and crying because the Center for Discovery’s newly vaccinated residents can return home for short visits for the first time since March.
The Harris-based Center – an internationally known caregiver, health-care provider, school and research institute for those with complex developmental disabilities – recently administered 900 Pfizer coronavirus vaccines.
“We’re calling them freedom shots,” said Terry Hamlin, the Center’s associate executive director. “We knew right away we’d be in trouble with this virus if we didn’t act quickly,” she said.
