Fox News debuted a new public service announcement Wednesday night encouraging viewers of the nation’s top-rated cable news network to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. 

“America, we’re in this together,” Steve Doocy, a co-host of “Fox & Friends” says as the ad opens, before it cuts to daytime host Harris Faulkner, who says “and if you can, get the vaccine.” 

The PSA then directs viewers to a link on the homepage where people can locate and register for coronavirus vaccines near them. 

The 10-second pro-vaccination message debuted during Wednesday’s edition of “Special Report with Bret Baier” and is slated to run over the next several days during both daytime and prime-time programming on the network. 

Fox News has faced increased pressure in recent days to promote vaccines as the delta variant of the coronavirus rips through the nation, and public health experts warning the vast majority of people currently sick or dying from coronavirus are unvaccinated.
