“Vaccine side effect: G6 🎵,” Carey captioned the clip.

In the video, an “excited and nervous” Carey also reflected on the journey thus far.

“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,” Carey said of a March 2020 clip with her 9-year-old twins, daughter Monroe and son Moroccan.

“You know, we’re still in this battle together,” she continued.

Carey later attempted to put her hand on her hip as a medical professional readied to give her the vaccine, but was told to relax her arm.

“I’m filming, that’s the problem, I’m in my filming stance,” Carey said.

Once the shot was administered, Carey clapped and quipped about the lack of blood.

“See? I’ve proven my point I am actually a vampire,” she said.

“We’re all in this together as we’ve said,” Carey concluded. “Love you much!”

In addition to Carey, Steve Martin, Al Roker, and Dolly Parton are among the celebrities who have detailed their COVID-19 vaccine experiences with fans. Last month, Amy Schumer put on her “fanciest dress” — a gold sequin long-sleeved mini — to receive her shot.
