But the name of the brand has been smartly incorporated with the names of the vaccines. In addition to this, the poster also contains a note that says, “Shots of safety,” next to the signature bottle symbol of the brand. Along with the post, the tweet says, “A shot in the arm to prevent the harm!”
Not just coca-cola but the police team also used the brand name of another popular soft drink Thums up, to create awareness, raising a ‘thumbs up’ from the drink’s official Twitter account, as well.
