Martha Stewart was given the first dose of her COVID-19 vaccine, and she shoots back at those who accuse her of skipping the line.
The 79-year-old lifestyle icon shared a video of himself receiving the vaccine on Monday, writing in a long caption: “I was vaccinated today in a designated vaccine pillow near the Martha Stewart Center for Living in Mount Sinai Downtown. I am so proud and grateful to the doctors, nurses and medical staff who wander through the bureaucracy and confusion of the distribution of these very important vaccines. ”
“I am thrilled to have received my dose and look forward to the booster,” she continued. “The doctors told me that 10,000 applications were received by Mount Sinai just after the state released this batch of vaccines. Here is to the advancement of science and a heartfelt thank you to those who work on the vaccines. We are all hoping for an end to this pandemic. ”
“Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party” host went on to address any concerns that she received preferential treatment due to her celebrity status, adding: “We are all hoping for an end to this pandemic. To address your concerns that I came across the line knowing that I am in the approved age group for this batch of vaccines and I was waiting in line with others. ”
Martha is used to clapping back in the hates – last year she slapped a troll who criticized her when she sent pictures of a lobster dinner and called her “tone deaf”.
Martha replied, “The lobsters each cost $ 4 from a fisherman who was happy to get more than from his regular buyer. We had potatoes from our own garden. And corn from a local farm that we support. We feed everyone who works for us. We do not waste. We compost. We are working. We give generously to many organizations. We like the pandemic and observe a healthy lifestyle and social distance, etc., and we wear masks, we are good people. ”
