The eldest daughter of the former US president, Donald Trump, Ivanka, received her first coronavirus vaccine shot on 14 April. She did not elaborate on which vaccine she was given.
Ivanka Trump on Wednesday tweeted that she had received a second shot of a coronavirus vaccine and urged everyone to take part in the vaccination campaign.
“This afternoon, I gratefully received my second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Getting fully vaccinated is the best way to end this pandemic and protect ourselves and one another”, she tweeted, attaching a photo of her receiving a shot.
She was inoculated for the first time on 14 April, signaling about it on Twitter as well and expressing gratitude to “Nurse Torres”, who apparently gave her the jab.

Ivanka Trump’s post about getting the second shot immediately sparked reactions from netizens, with users swiftly pointing at how rarely Trump’s daughter tweets now that her father is no longer a US president.
Wow, 2 tweets since January.
My, how quickly you abandon the American people when they’re no longer profitable to you.

Others were divided over how to comment on Ivanka Trump’s vaccination: some praised her move and wished her well, while others lashed out at her, criticising her father’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
For the virus your Daddy said wasn’t a problem?
