Hot Vax Summer

What does Hot Vax Summer mean?

‘Hot Vax Summer’ is another way to say ‘Summer 2021’

‘Hot Vax Summer’ is a fun term that folks used to describe the summer of 2021. Thanks to the availability of covid vaccines, people were able to once again enjoy activities that were previously deemed unsafe or were called off during the summer of 2020. The term is a festive way of marking the return to normalcy.

The phrase is a spin-off from ‘Hot Girl Summer’, a popular term used during the summer of 2019. This was mainly used by fans of the rapper, known as Hot Girl Meg, and her fans who go by ‘hotties’. The summer of 2019 even saw the release of a song titled ‘Hot Girl Summer’, which became something of an anthem for that season.

It’s important to note that the ‘Hot’ in both ‘Hot Vax Summer’ and ‘Hot Girl Summer’ does not relate to the weather. Instead, it’s about people feeling confident, attractive, adventurous, and frisky. For instance, in the summer of 2021, there was an expected increase in online dating activity as vaccinated singles were eager to meet new people.

As people were looking forward to a normal summer in 2021, they came up with amusing names for the season. ‘Hot Vax Summer’ was the most common name for summer 2021, but there were others too. Some referred to it as ‘Shot Girl Summer’ (the ‘shot’ here is a reference to the vaccine, not an alcoholic drink), ‘Vax Girl Summer’, and other similar names.
