The White House Is Partnering With Dating Apps To Get Horny People Vaccinated

Dust off your dating apps. It's time to swipe.

Tinder's vaccine features

In a national effort to get through to horny but vaccine-hesitant Americans, the White House announced Friday that it is joining forces with dating apps to encourage people to get their COVID-19 vaccines so that they can go forth and fuck freely this summer.

Vaccinated users on Tinder, Hinge, Bumble, and Badoo will have access to some premium features for free. OkCupid, Chispa, BLK, and Match are giving out a free "Boost" to those who've been vaccinated so that their profiles are more likely to be seen first. Plenty of Fish is also offering free credits to vaccinated members for its livestreaming feature.

The dating apps will add badges or stickers that users can include on their profile to indicate that they've been vaccinated, as well as filters so that you only swipe on fellow vaccinated people. There will also be in-app links to find your closest vaccination site.

"People who display their vaccination status are 14% more likely to get a match," White House COVID-19 adviser Andy Slavitt said at a press conference, citing research from OkCupid. "We have finally found the one thing that makes us all more attractive."

The new features are expected to launch on the apps in the next few weeks.

More than 38% of people in the US are now fully vaccinated, and the White House is aiming for 70% of the population to get at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by July 4.

With some help from dating apps and the CDC's recent announcement that inoculated strangers can start making out with each other again, you can let your vaccinated girl summer begin!!!
