Are you one of those people who post a selfie of themselves after getting vaccinated? Known as “vaxxies” – vaccine selfies may well be the secret weapon to encourage more people to get the jab.

Facebook, Twitter and Instagram is filling up with selfies of family and friends getting their COVID shot.

They normalise the vaccine procedure, and may even reduce hesitancy.

There are even Facebook frames #Vaccinated.

The posts are a nudge for people to get vaccinated as our fear of missing out FOMO urges us to join the club.

Do you have a “vaxxie” to share? Send them through to and we’ll post a gallery.
