Amy Schumer looked ready to walk down a red carpet in a gold sequined gown as she received her first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine on Sunday afternoon. 

After getting her jab, the 39-year-old stand-up comedian was spotted by a fan as she sat and waited during a 15-minute observation period, to watch for any rare allergic reactions. 

She also posed for a masked selfie with a fan, named Alex, who thanked the actress for ‘brightening up the room even through uncertainty.’

Schumer reposted the photo on her Instagram Story and cheekily acknowledged her perplexing wardrobe choice as most stick to comfy clothing for their appointments.  

‘Wore my fanciest dress to get my vaccine,’ the mother-of-one wrote as she could be seen wearing her blonde hair in a ponytail and holding a bottle of water. 

Before her vaccine was administered, her fan shared footage of Schumer saying they could shoot the vaccine in her ‘p**sy’ as others nearby laughed at the raunchy joke.

Additionally, Schumer thanked health care workers and praised others for getting vaccinated. 

Earlier this month, she brought her two-year-old son Gene to visit with her father Gordon after almost one year of no contact due to the coronavirus and his pre-existing conditions with a Multiple sclerosis diagnosis. 

In a heartwarming photo of the family, Amy cradled her son, who she shares with husband Chris Fischer, in her arms while wearing a white KN95 mask. 

Almost painless: Footage then panned to a needle being inserted into her arm as she winced, before asking: 'That's it?'

Smart: Schumer ripped one shoulder of her dress, in order to get the vaccine conveniently

Documenting the experience: A few hours later, she shared a video of herself driving over to the vaccine center singing Whitney Houston’s How Will I Know and fist-pumping with excitement

'I want to thank all the brave people in the medical field. 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,' she captioned her Instagram video

The recording also showed her apologizing to anyone that showed up, who wanted to mediate, because she planned to entertain medical professionals and volunteers.

Schumer also encouraged others to get dressed up and use the hashtag #downtogown to support Pencils For Kids, which provides classroom supplies, programs, libraries and schools to communities in need.  

The I Feel Pretty star explained Guy Oseary would be donating five dollars to the organization for each suit or dress worn by people receiving the vaccine.

In a May NY Times interview, Amy spoke about how she was faring in the pandemic, revealing how hard it was to be away from her dad, while trying to put everything into perspective.

‘I’m worried about my dad, who is in assisted living where 15 people have died. My mom is alone. It’s upsetting. And my friends who are nurses, a lot of them had it. But my day-to-day is nice. It’s nice to have a baby, because it gives you a routine, and he doesn’t know what’s going on,’ she shared.

Schumer revealed that she missed doing stand-up more than anything, but was optimistic that it would eventually return, while sharing that comedians would have to ‘pivot and evolve’ during this time in order to stay relevant.

She also added that she had no plans of going to a set or venue unless she knew everything was safe.
