Martha Stewart just got the COVID-19 vaccine and shut down followers who accused her of ‘jumping the line’ – Martha Stewart has received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and she wants her fans to know that she didn’t skip the line. The 79-year-old lifestyle expert and celebrity chef shared an Instagram post of the process on Monday. While Stewart is known for her “thirst trap” selfies, she was dressed down for the appointment in New York City.
The clip shows Stewart wearing a black mask and simple all-black ensemble as a doctor prepares her arm for the shot.
Stewart said she had been vaccinated at a “designated vaccine pod” near the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai in Manhattan.
“I am so proud of and grateful to the doctors, nurses, and medical staff who are wading through the red tape and confusion of the distribution of these very important vaccines,” Stewart wrote. “I am excited to have received my dosage and look forward to the booster.”
“The doctors told me 10,000 applications were received by Mount Sinai right after the state released this batch of vaccines,” she added. “Here’s to the advancement of science and a heartfelt thanks to those working on the vaccines. We are all hoping for an end to this pandemic.”
Stewart also told her followers that she hadn’t received special treatment to get the vaccine early.
“To allay your concerns that I jumped the line, know that I am in the approved age group for this batch of vaccines and I waited in line with others,” she added.
Some people complained in the comments that their older parents had yet to receive vaccines, while others pointed out that every state’s vaccination roll out plan is different.
Stewart was vaccinated days after New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the expansion of the state’s vaccination distribution network to include New Yorkers over the age of 75.
