The latest post from the official X page of the Empire State Building is quite bizarre.
In the new social media post, the Empire State Building posted a picture of the iconic building lit up with blue lights to honor a new COVID-19 vaccine being released.
The caption to the post read “Blue and cyan tonight in partnership with @iheartradio in honor of a new vaccine.”
Take a look:

The Empire State Building lit up in Pfizer blue to commemorate the CDC's recommendation of a new COVID mRNA booster for everyone 6 months and older.
Pfizer's latest booster received FDA approval based on a study involving 10 mice.

Here’s what 105.1 Power reported:
Seems like COVID’s everywhere again. But here’s good news from Pfizer!
This season’s updated COVID-19 shots are now available for ages 6 months and up, and they’re designed to help protect against recent variants.
That is why today, at 8pm, the Empire State Building turned its iconic building blue to announce that the CDC recommends everyone 6 months of age and older get this season’s updated COVID-19 shot. The blue light symbolizes our gratitude and appreciation for the updated vaccines and all those who made it possible.
COVID-19 isn’t gone, and vaccination remains one of our best tools to help protect against the virus that causes the disease. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about this season’s updated COVID-19 shots. Learn more and schedule at the CDC’s website, vaccines.gov.
I know a lot of people don't believe this is a real post by the Empire State Building promoting COVID Vaccines for "iheartradio" of all things, just a couple of days after Fauci admitted that Pfizer causes myocarditis.
It is real.
They think we forgot.

The move by the Empire State Building comes just days after Dr. Fauci admitted that the covid-19 vaccine may cause myocarditis in some people who take the vaccine.
Fauci appeared on ABC’s This Week on Sunday, a day before the Food and Drug Administration approved the newest shots from Moderna and Pfizer for most Americans.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Tuesday recommended that virtually all Americans should get the new vaccine, which is expected to be available within days.
In Sunday’s interview, Fauci said that there was a risk of myocarditis with the vaccine but added that it was very low. Myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle, most commonly caused by infection in the body, that can lead to chest pain, shortness of breath and heart palpitations. Most cases are self-resolving, according to a Johns Hopkins cardiologist.
