A worker pasted a 6-foot band-aid on the iconic blue whale at the Museum of Natural History, just ahead of the museum’s debut as a vaccination hub. Was the whale vaccinated? Is it feeling sympathy pains?
We reached out to the Museum for answers and will update when the news comes in.
Update: “The implication is clear,” a source at the Museum told us. The blue whale got the shot.
🐋 We've received many questions about the blue whale's bandage: It's real. It was installed yesterday by Trenton from the Exhibition department! It's 6 feet long & 2 feet wide.
