McDonald’s will start putting propaganda on their cups.
On Tuesday McDonalds announced they are partnering with the White House to promote COVID-19 vaccines.
Starting in July McDonald’s will have pro-vaccine slogans from the Department of Health and Human Services featured on their McCafe cups.
The cups will also encourage customers to go visit vaccine.gov so they can find out where the nearest vaccination sit is located.
The new McDonald's coffee cups will include a website address that directs people to nearby appointments and safety information https://t.co/5kJaD7l85x

CNN covered the story see what details they had to share:
McDonald’s is partnering with the White House to promote vaccination information on its coffee cups as hesitancy grows about taking the potentially life-saving shot.
Beginning in July, customers in the United States will see redesigned McCafe cups and delivery seal stickers that features “We Can Do This,” a slogan created by the US Department of Health and Human Services to promote vaccine confidence. It also includes a website address (vaccines.gov) that directs people to nearby appointments and safety information.
Prior to that, McDonald’s (MCD) said its billboard in New York’s Times Square location will also display vaccine information beginning in mid-May.
“We all want to protect ourselves and our loved ones and be together with our communities again,” said Genna Gent, McDonald’s USA vice president for global public policy and government relations, in a statement. “McDonald’s is excited to be doing our part for the people we serve, providing them with simple information that can help keep them safe.”

The New York Post didn’t stay silent see what they had to say:
They’re lovin’ the vaccine.
McDonald’s announced Tuesday that it’s partnering with the White House to promote the COVID-19 vaccines on the fast-food chain’s redesigned coffee cups.
The promotion will begin in July and US customers will see new McCafe cups and delivery seal stickers that feature the Department of Health and Human Services-created slogan, “We Can Do This.”
The cups will also direct customers toward vaccines.gov, which helps people find nearby appointments and provides vaccine safety information.
The public-private partnership comes as demand for the life-saving shots has begun to taper off in many parts of the country. More than 152 million people in the US, or nearly 50 percent, have gotten at least one shot of the vaccine, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But experts increasingly say that the country is unlikely to vaccinate enough people to achieve herd immunity at which point the virus would be unable to spread in the community.
As private sector companies join us in the fight against this virus, @McDonalds has announced that beginning in July, around 50 million of their cups will be designed to direct people to visit https://t.co/rxJIFtKUQm for vaccine information when they grab coffee or order a meal.
