Elmo sings Taylor Swift in new vaccine PSA

Elmo appears in a public service announcement. (PSA still frame)

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A new public service announcement urging people to get vaccinated stars Elmo singing Taylor Swift.

Elmo sings a line from a Swift song to distract himself from the needle.

The PSA is from the U.S. Health Department, which wants parents to know about the importance of children getting vaccinated.

The video was released the same day California declared the end of a recent measles outbreak that infected 147 people in the U.S.

Press play in the video player to see the PSA and Daybreak Anchor Scott Sander’s Elmo impression.
