Amy Schumer, 39, dons her fanciest dress and makes a VERY crude joke as she receives Covid vaccine

Amy Schumer donned her fanciest dress as she  received her first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in New York on Sunday afternoon. 

The comedian, 39, has been encouraging people to put on their nicest clothes for the procedure, and didn’t disappoint herself with a sparkling gold dress. 

Amy – who was diagnosed with Lyme disease in September – was filmed entertaining the crowds during the procedure, leaving everyone in hysterics as she cracked a very crude joke ahead of the jab. 

One shot down! 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 

Sitting in the chair and waiting to be jabbed, Amy quipped: ‘You can shoot in my p***y, I don’t care!’ as the waiting room burst into shocked laughter, she went on to tell the vaccination staff that she loved them and thanked them for her work.  

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

Amy’s video montage of the trip began with a  clip driving to the vaccine center singing Whitney Houston’s How Will I Know and fist-pumping with excitement. 

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

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

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

Alongside the video, Amy penned: ‘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 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.

The COVID-19 vaccine is available to certain groups in New York, including people ages 50 and older, health care personnel and other essential workers. 

People with certain underlying health conditions and people who are pregnant are now also eligible.

Back in September, Amy revealed she had been diagnosed with the tick-borne illness Lyme disease. 

 In an Instagram post she penned: ‘Anyone get LYME this summer?’

‘I got it and I’m on doxycycline. I have maybe had it for years, any advice?’

Though the mother-of-one clarified that she is feeling good on the treatment, writing ‘I also want to say that I feel good and I’m excited to get rid of it.’

Doxycycline isn’t the only treatment as she revealed she is also taking an herbal treatment from the medical herb farm Great Cape Herbs known as ‘Lyme-2.’

Earlier this month, Amy 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.   

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.

Amy 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.    

WHAT IS LYME DISEASE?

Lyme disease is caused by a bacteria that is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected black-legged ticks.

The most common symptoms of the disease are fever, headache, fatigue and a skin rash called erythema migrans.

The disease can typically be treated by several weeks of oral antibiotics.

But if left untreated, the infection can spread to the joints, heart and nervous symptoms and be deadly.  

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU ARE INFECTED?

During the first three to 30 days of infection, these symptoms may occur:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle and joint aches
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Erythema migrans (EM) rash 

The rash occurs in approximately 80 per cent of infected people.

It can expand to up to 12 inches (30 cm), eventually clearing and giving off the appearance of a target or a ‘bull’s-eye’.

Later symptoms of Lyme disease include:

  • Severe headaches and neck stiffness
  • Additional rashes
  • Arthritis with joint pain and swelling
  • Facial or Bell’s palsy
  • Heart palpitations
  • Problems with short-term memory
  • Nerve pain
