With the recent debate on getting the Covid-19 vaccine or not, and on what vaccine to get, people all over the world have been making a firm stand on what their decision is during this critical time in our lives.

As with any challenges that come our way, Filipinos have always been known to handle them with a smile—and even laugh at them.

Over the weekend, people have been uploading a new or edited Facebook profile picture. It’s a Facebook profile photo frame with a Pfizer logo on the lower left and an injection on the right. Apparently, it’s not company-related under the pharmaceutical company but by a Mexican with the username Edi Mexia last December 16, 2020.

There are quite a few who shared their renditions to this photo frame and it’s been doing the rounds. Here’s a few of them.

Deeper dimples, please
Content creator Albert Nicolas came across this frame from his friend. He took a photo just for this frame, para “sakto sa dimples ko.”

No need for microblading
PR practitioner Michelle Orosa-Ople just had to try this frame and added it to her current profile picture with her husband Carlo. “I saw the FB frames and decided to try it, and found myself laughing out loud when I saw how it turned out. So funny I had to share. Also, adds a bit of lightness to the topic on vaccines.”

Need a lift?
Trixie Esguerra-Bugia thought it would be funny if she tried it as well. “Alluding to the vaccine as a face filler or botox, I took a photo looking like I was facing the doctor and letting the doctor inject my chin with fillers.”

For Benedict Opinion, he chose an old photo of him in with his alma mater, University of the Philippines, in the background. He posted this “in hopes of getting myself a safe and effective vaccine to fight COVID-19.”

So, what do you think of their updated profile photos? Will you get one, too?
