Emmy Rossum’s one-year-old daughter received her first COVID shot.
“An exciting day that we have been waiting for a long time!” the angelyne star and Shameless alum, 35, wrote on Instagram on Wednesday. “Our daughter received her first COVID vaccine!”
The photo showed the child, whose name has not been publicly revealed, sporting a glittering silver bandage while still in the doctor’s office.
Rossum – who shares the child with Mister Robot creator Sam Esmail, 44 – said after giving birth last year that she was pregnant when she got the shot and ‘not only did we have a beautiful, healthy baby girl, but we also just learn that our daughter now has antibodies. In short, stop being an irresponsible idiot and get vaccinated.”
Last Friday, the FDA unanimously approved emergency use authorization for Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines for children 6 months and older. Prior to this, a COVID vaccine was not permitted for children under 5.
The Pfizer vaccine for young children is a three-shot schedule (the first two given three weeks apart and the last at least two months later) while Moderna is two shots (about four weeks apart) .
