Ivanka Trump shared photos of herself getting a coronavirus vaccine on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, but was flooded with comments from people who were angry with her for getting the shot.
Trump encouraged others to also get vaccinated, writing: “Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too!

But people responded saying they wouldn’t do the same, with some spreading conspiracy theories about the vaccine.
Many users simply posted messages like “No,” Nope,” or “Why?,” with other claiming she was making a mistake.
The Associated Press reported that she received the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine in Florida, where people aged 16 or above are eligible for the shot. She also told the AP in a statement that “getting vaccinated is our best way to beat this virus and protect ourselves and others.”
The AP reported, citing two sources, that Trump was eligible for a vaccination when she was working at the Trump White House, but she chose to wait.
As Insider’s Eliza Relman reported, Ivanka Trump is the first immediate member of the Trump family who publicized that she got vaccinated. Her father, President Donald Trump, was quietly vaccinated alongside the first lady in January.
