Targeting the somewhat confusing guidance related to when various groups of Americans will be able to be vaccinated, Fauci, played by Kate McKinnon, hosted a mock game show entitled, "So You Think You Can Get The Vaccine."

"The vaccine rollout is going strong, but it's also very confusing. Who can get it? How? When? Where is it? Do both doses go in the same arm or different arms or what? I don't know," McKinnon's Fauci says.


At one point in the game show, the three "governors" decide that an older contestant played by "SNL's" Mikey Day, is eligible for the vaccine. But another problem arises.

"I'm just getting word that power went out at a CVS nearby and all of the vaccines are going to expire. So it's first come, first stab," says McKinnon's Fauci.

"[I]t is great to be back in New York City," cast member Aidy Bryant, portraying Cruz, says. "I'm sorry, my arms are tired because I just flew back from Cancun."

"Uh oh. Uh oh. Here comes my catchphrase that I spent all day yesterday screaming...are you ready? Here we go. Freedooooooom!" she continued.


The appearance was Bryant's second mocking Cruz.  Last week, she appeared on the show as the Texas senator, that time clad in a floral-print shirt, a tan, and a wig resembling the one worn by actor James Franco in his drug-slinging "Spring Breakers" role.

The show resumed its 46th season in late January. The latest episode was hosted by musician Nick Jonas, who also performed as the episode's musical guest.
