Amy Schumer She put on her “finest clothes” to receive her COVID-19 vaccine – and made some jokes as she waited.
Comedian and actress, 39, has documented her vaccine experience in New York City, from a car ride (singing the COVID version of Whitney Houston“How will I know”) for throwing dirty jokes on the site. The star wore a gold embroidered dress – with a DIY hole in the upper arm to get access to the pollen – saying her fashion statement was to “show respect to the people working there.”
Schumer, who was with her husband, Chris Fisher, was photographed getting the actual injection, through the hole in her dress, which she wore with black pants and sneakers.
“This is?” I asked when it was over.
But it is just getting started. While she waited 15 minutes to make sure she was not allergic, she joked in court about the “heroes” and health care workers, as well as others getting their vaccinations.
“I just wanted to entertain some of the workers here – and in our 15 minutes,” Schumer said. “I’m sorry if you were to use this time to meditate.”
The Train wreck The star continued, “I know some people are afraid to get the vaccine. But I was like, ‘I don’t care what’s there, you know? Drop it into my page. I don’t care,” shouts from the room.
Regardless of the jokes, she said she thanked the “brave” people on the front lines throughout the pandemic.
“I just want to say thank you and I love New York,” she said. “And thanks to everyone here. We got the vaccine!”
Schumer has also posed for photoshoot with fans. And someone named Alex thanked her on social media for “brightening the room even through uncertainty.” Schumer re-shared their photo, adding, “I put on my fond dress to get my vaccinations.”
Schumer urged others to dress up too – in the most beautiful outfit or suit – writing on social media is “a nice way to show respect to the people working there who understand the enormity of what they do. Thank you heroes. You too are selfless and your humanity inspires us all.”
With at least one vaccine in place, she added, “I’m excited and hopeful. I hope you do as well.”
Earlier this month, Schumer was Able to visit her fatherGordon, for the first time in a year – and brought her one-year-old son, Jane, with her. Gordon has been living with MS since the star was 12 years old, so they practiced social distancing during the pandemic.
