Shot Girl Summer

What does Shot Girl Summer mean?

‘Shot Girl Summer’ is another name for ‘Summer 2021’

If you’ve heard the term ‘Shot Girl Summer’, it refers to the summer of 2021, particularly for those who had received their COVID-19 vaccination, affectionately known as the ‘Fauci Ouchie’. This cheeky phrase was a fun play on the popular term ‘Hot Girl Summer’ from 2019.

Back in 2019, the term ‘Hot Girl Summer’ was born thanks to the fans of the rapper Megan Thee Stallion. It was such a hit that Stallion even released a song named ‘Hot Girl Summer’, which quickly became the unofficial anthem of that summer. However, as we all know, summer 2020 was not as ‘hot’ due to the global pandemic.

So, when 2021 rolled around and vaccines started to become more available, people were eager to get back to their regular summer activities. This anticipation led to the birth of the term ‘Shot Girl Summer’. It’s a clever nod to both the ‘Hot Girl Summer’ of 2019 and the COVID-19 vaccine that allowed people to start gathering together again without the need for social distancing.

This eagerness to return to a somewhat ‘normal’ summer led to various creative names for the summer of 2021. ‘Hot Vax Summer’ was another popular phrase, with ‘Vax Girl Summer’ being another variant, although not as widely used. Regardless of the name, they all symbolized the hope and excitement for a summer of fun after a challenging year.
