The ad shows a disgruntled looking woman being told by her controlling boyfriend, “Mimosa with the girls? You still aren’t vaxxed, Debra!”
“Mimosas with the girls this weekend? It’s a bad idea if you haven’t been vaxxed,” states the tweet accompanying the image from the Baltimore City Health Department.
Twitter users pointed out that the ad resembles a poster for a woman’s refuge, portraying Debra’s domestic situation with her boyfriend as if she is a victim of domestic abuse.

Others questioned why the city was targeting the sparse demographic of “the three rich white women who live in that city.”
