The American Museum of Natural History in New York City is one of many famous landmarks being transformed into a COVID-19 vaccination site.
To mark the opening of the museum's vaccination site on April 23, the exhibition department added a bandage to the iconic blue whale model hanging in the Hall of Ocean Life, indicating that the whale had also joined the effort to "stop the spread."
The 94-foot whale model, constructed in the mid-1960s, is made of 21,000 pounds of foam and fiberglass. In a tweet on Tuesday, AMNH said that the whale's bandage measures 6 feet long and 2 feet wide.

Vaccinations at AMNH will be open to all New York City residents. Everyone who gets vaccinated there will also receive a general admission voucher for up to four people.
When asked how the whale is feeling after receiving the vaccine, an AMNH representative told Insider, "She's feeling well - thanks for asking!"
