Ivanka Trump, former President Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, broke her months-long silence on Twitter to post photos of herself getting a COVID-19 vaccination on Wednesday. 

“Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too!” Trump tweeted. “Thank you Nurse Torres!!!” 

Trump, who hasn’t tweeted in almost three months, is the first member of her immediate family to publicize her vaccination. The former president and first lady didn’t tell the public that they were vaccinated. The news that they privately received immunizations in January was first reported by The New York Times in March. 

Trump’s enthusiastic post about the COVID-19 vaccine is potentially significant because Republican voters and Trump loyalists are disproportionately hesitant or unwilling to get vaccinated. 

About 25% of Trump voters told pollster Frank Luntz that they “definitely will not” get vaccinated and another 21% said they would wait for over a year to get the shot. Younger Republican women, those who live in rural areas, and those who don’t have a college degrees, are particularly concerned about getting a vaccine.
