Amy Schumer shares celebratory vaccine video wearing her 'fanciest dress'

Amy Schumer celebrated receiving her Covid-19 vaccine by wearing her “fanciest dress” and telling jokes at the vaccination site.

On Sunday, the comedian shared a video to her Instagram showing her experience getting the shot in New York City, which included her dancing to music on the drive there.

“This is my going to get the vaccine energy,” Schumer said as she danced, before showing a clip of herself dressed in tights, black sneakers and a gold sequined dress with a portion of her sleeve cut out from the upper arm of the dress.

“I just wanted to maybe entertain some of the workers here … I’m sorry if you were going to use this time to meditate,” she said at one point to laughter. “I know that some people are scared of getting the vaccine but I don’t care what’s in there. Shoot it in my p***y. I don’t care.”

Schumer then transitioned to an up-close video of herself receiving the injection and grimacing, only to turn to the nurse administering the dose to ask: “That’s it?” after it was completed.

In the caption, the actress said she wanted to “thankall the brave people in the medical field,” before adding: “But more than them I want to give a shout out to me. I’m awesome. I love the people of New York. Even the annoying ones. It’s nice to see all of them. I feel excited and hopeful. I hope you do too.”

The 39-year-old, who wrote on her Instagram Stories that she had worn her “fanciest dress” for the occasion, then encouraged others to dress up for their vaccine appointments as part of a charity movement in support of Pencils for Kids, Inc.

“If you want to join me and support@pencilsforkidsinc take a pic of yourself getting the vaccine in your best suit or nicest dress. Use #downtogown,” she wrote. “Nice way to show respect to the people working there who understand the enormity of what it is they are doing.”
