People are lighting up social media with COVID-19 vaccination selfies.Why it matters: After a long, hard year with COVID-19, vaccine selfies offer a much-needed dose of hope — and act as an advertisement for those on the fence about getting vaccinated.Get market news worthy of your time with Axios Markets. Subscribe for free.What's happening: About 54 million people in the U.S. have gotten at least one COVID-19 vaccination shot, and you could be forgiven for thinking that nearly all of them are on your social media feed.Some vaccination sites have even begun setting up specific stations for post-shot selfies.What they're saying: Vaccine selfies are a "sign that we just might be able to get things together again," journalist Maya Kosoff wrote in the Washington Post this week.The other side: Some critics argue it's bad form to post vaccine selfies, given both the sheer number of people who have died from COVID-19 and the fact that distribution of the vaccine is still wildly unequal.And it's definitely a bad idea to include your vaccination card in any vaccine selfie you post online, as it could expose you to identity theft.Yes, but: As manufacturing ramps up, the challenge around vaccine distribution will move from one of supply to one of demand.New survey data from Pew Research Center indicates 69% of the U.S. public intends to get vaccinated or already has.That's up significantly from 60% in November, but it still leaves a large chunk of the country — especially white Republicans — who need to be convinced.Given that fact, vaccine selfies seem less like showing off on social media than playing a pro-social part in normalizing vaccination.The bottom line: Whatever you do after you get your vaccine, you'll have a hard time beating Gurdeep Pandher, who posted a video of himself dancing Bhangra in the Yukon after receiving his first dose.

Geopolitical tensions are foiling efforts to get to the bottom of how COVID-19 originated.Why it matters: Insights into how COVID-19 began can help us prevent future pandemics — especially if it involved any kind of leak or accident at a virology lab.Get market news worthy of your time with Axios Markets. Subscribe for free.Driving the news: The findings of a WHO-led mission to Wuhan, China, earlier this year to investigate the origins of COVID-19 are expected by mid-March, officials from the health agency said in a press conference Friday, after plans for an interim report were apparently scrapped.The news comes after a group of two dozen scientists called in an open letter on Thursday for a new inquiry, claiming the WHO team had insufficient access during their trip to China — including to a virology institute that carried out coronavirus research. Context: The WHO team received international criticism when its members concluded in a press conference at the end of its trip that a lab accident was "extremely unlikely" while remaining open to the possibility — promoted by Beijing — that the virus originated elsewhere and had been introduced to China via contaminated frozen food.Be smart: The most likely explanation still remains the simplest: The coronavirus jumped from an animal host in China to humans, the kind of zoonotic spillover seen in countless other emerging outbreaks.But a pandemic threat from lab leaks is real, and as our ability to manipulate viruses grows, so will that danger.While we're limited in our ability to prevent zoonotic spillovers, we can and should be able to do much more to monitor and regulate the kind of research that could lead to the accidental introduction of a new virus.The bottom line: Without much better transparency, we're unlikely to ever know for sure how COVID-19 began — and what steps we need to take to prevent it from happening again.
