We are now getting the first glimpse of the Dr. Fauci bobblehead being sold by the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum.

The museum released images of the bobblehead of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director on Friday.

It was announced earlier this month that Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has advised several presidents over the years amid health issues and crises, is getting his own bobblehead.

Museum co-founder and CEO Phil Sklar said Fauci was picked because of his status as a coronavirus expert.

The museum is close to reaching the $150,000 mark in donations to support the 100 Million Mask Challenge through the sale of the Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx bobbleheads.

There have been almost 28,000 Dr. Fauci bobbleheads sold.
