NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Martha Stewart headed to Mount Sinai Downtown in Union Square Monday to get the first of two COVID-19 vaccine shots -- and she documented the vaccination with a video posted to Instagram.
"I was vaccinated today in a designated vaccine pod near the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Downtown 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, 79, wrote.
She continued, "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. 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 wanted to quash the notion that she may have received preferential treatment.
"To allay your concerns that I jumped the line," she wrote, "know that I am in the approved age group for this batch of vaccines and I waited in line with others"
