ATLANTA, GA – With many residents of Louisiana hesitant to receive the COVID-19 vaccination due to hearing that it causes patients to grow seventeen arms, the CDC today announced plans to offer the vaccine by administration via king cake.
CDC and state officials alike believe that the move will encourage Louisiana residents to accept the vaccine and protect themselves from the coronavirus, and all it will take is injecting the vaccine into a slice of the delicious, sugary, calorie-laden Mardi Gras treat.
The special version of the vaccine has been modified to ensure that it soaks into the numerous layers of the king cake without losing its potency. It has also been given a delicious cinnamon flavor that blends in well with the overall taste of the traditional king cake.
Officials are encouraged by the development.
“We’ve spoken to many people in Louisiana who have said that they won’t receive the vaccine because they believe it to be too dangerous”, explained CDC spokesperson David Lindquist, “But we discovered that if you tell them it’s inside a king cake and good to go, they’ll wolf that thing down without a second thought.
Ideally we’d like to administer the COVID-19 vaccination the usual way, direct into the arm. However thanks to advancements made in our laboratories, we can now offer this and protect the people of Louisiana safely and deliciously.
It’s a win-win for everyone and another step to bringing coronavirus rates down.”
The first batch of king cake vaccinations are expected to arrive in the state next week.
