On Twitter on Sunday, Steve Martin announced he had obtained the COVID-19 vaccine, he also called the overall process that it was “smooth as silk.”
Good News/Bad News. Good News. Great news: I’ve just been vaccinated! Poor news: Because I’m 75, I got it. Ha!-Ha! “Martin said to his 8.7 million follower.
Martin continued by saying that, “The NYC operation was smooth as silk (sorry about the @BCDreyer! cliché) and hosted by the US Army and National Guard to perfection. Thanks to all of you, and thanks to science.”
Martin said he signed up online and stood in line, too, when pressed by a fan about how he got the vaccine, as they had difficulty getting one for an older relative.
“I signed the ON line on the NYC dot gov website (sorry I don’t have the exact site) and waited at the Javits Center for the IN line,” explained Martin.
“He wrote later, “Right now, I don’t have any real resects.
According to the CDC, some side effects have been associated with COVID-19 vaccines, including pain and swelling of the arm where the patient was shot.
Martin isn’t the only star in New York that has recently been vaccinated. Martha Stewart confirmed last week that she had received the vaccine for COVID-19 and documented the moment on social media.
“The 79-year-old posted on Instagram at the time, “I was vaccinated today in a designated vaccine pod near the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Downtown.
Like Martin, Stewart also had to wait in the line as well.
“Stewart said, “To alleviate your concerns that I have jumped the line, I know I am in the approved age group for this batch of vaccines and I have waited in line with others.
