Ivanka Trump Shares Picture Getting COVID-19 Vaccine, Breaking Long Social Media Silence

Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of former President Donald Trump, shared a picture on social media as she got her first vaccine against COVID-19.

The 39-year-old former first daughter broke an almost three-month silence with Wednesday’s picture. She hasn’t shared anything since she and her family relocated to Florida after her father left office in January.

“Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too!” Trump wrote on Wednesday alongside a picture of her getting the shot. “Thank you Nurse Torres!!!” she added.

Trump told The Associated Press that in order to beat the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, as well as protect ourselves and others around us—getting vaccinated is the best way.

“Getting vaccinated is our best way to beat this virus and protect ourselves and others,” she wrote.

COVID-19 is caused by the CCP virus, commonly referred to as the novel coronavirus, which originated in China in late 2019.

Two people familiar with Ivanka Trump’s plans told AP she was eligible to get vaccinated along with other White House staff when she worked as a senior adviser, but that she chose to wait.

She reportedly received the Pfizer vaccine in Florida, where individuals age 16 and older are eligible to be vaccinated.

Trump’s decision to share a picture of her getting inoculated against COVID-19 prompted many of her followers to comment, with most saying that getting a vaccine against the CCP virus is not necessary.

“Because of the 99.8 percent survival rate of a virus they’ve never identified? Anthony Fauci and Andrew Cuomo would be proud,” one comment reads.

“You’re joking right?” another follower wrote—other people simply wrote, “why?” “never,” or “no thanks.”

Trump’s father and his wife, Melania Trump, received the COVID-19 vaccines at the White House in January, a source confirmed to The Epoch Times in early March.

It’s not clear whether the Trumps got shots produced by Moderna or Pfizer. Those were the only two authorized vaccines in the United States back then.
