๐Ÿ’‰ Syringe

Emoji Meaning

A medical syringe, as used to administer a vaccine or draw blood. Generally depicted at a 45° angle with a needle to the upper right. Commonly used for content concerning health, medicine, and related professions as well as various senses of needles, drugs, tattoos, blood, or more recently – coronavirus vaccination.

Originally used for the representation of blood donation, and displayed with blood in the barrel. In 2021 most platforms are switching to a more general-purpose empty syringe. Google and Facebook’s designs previously featured green liquids.

Syringe was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
