In May, a bus advertisement ran in Ontario to highlight Pediatric Stroke Awareness Month. It has no connection to COVID-19 vaccines, according to fact-checkers.

An image of an advertisement on several buses in Canada reading “Kids have strokes too” began circulating online following the US Food and Drug Administration’s authorization of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine for children aged 5-11.

Social media users have shared an image that falsely suggests an awareness campaign about pediatric strokes is linked to the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines. The advertisement was put forth by a Canadian charity, Achieving Beyond Brain Injury, for Pediatric Stroke Awareness month in May.

A Canadian charity’s ad campaign to raise awareness about pediatric strokes has been distorted online by those who oppose COVID-19 vaccines.

This was floating around the other day, and also a video of an advertisement on the side of a bus in Whitby, On, saying “Kids have strokes too!” The timing is pretty suspect. Kids might have had strokes in the past but they never needed to advertise that fact on a bus.

Not Shakin’ Stevens  Obviously it’s completely normal for kids to have strokes. You know so many already don’t you. This busadvertisement tells you it’s normal so it must be true, right?
