Mariah Carey Had This Surprising Response To Getting Her COVID-19 Vaccine

Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, celebrity vaccine videos are becoming a regular occurrence on our social media feeds. The latest megastar to share her vaccination experience with the world is the one and only Mariah Carey, who uploaded a clip of herself getting the shot to Instagram on April 3, 2021. 

In the video captioned "Vaccine side effect: G6," Carey said she was "excited and nervous a little bit" about receiving the vaccine. 

"Here were are, all the way from that first post, washing my hands with Roc & Roe in New York, trying to encourage people to really be safe," she said. "You know, we're still in this battle together." Later in the clip, the Grammy Award winner attempted to pose for the cameras with her hand on her hip. However, she was quickly told to relax her arm. "I'm filming, that's the problem, I'm in my filming stance," she quipped. 

Upon receiving the shot (with no blood following the puncture), the singer let out one of her staple whistle notes, before joking, "See? I've proven my point I am actually a vampire." Carey ended the video on a positive note, exclaiming, "We're all in this together as we've said. Love you much!"

She joins with Steve Martin, Al Roker, Dolly Parton, and Amy Schumer who uploaded videos and selfies of themselves getting the shot to their respective social media accounts.
