In news which will be shocking to absolutely no one, many of her fans did not welcome the news, not least because her father was well-known for mocking simple coronavirus safety measures and downplaying the seriousness of the pandemic.
The Instagram post’s comment section was riddled with complaints from people who are clearly not fans of vaccines.
“Bummer. I was hoping you were above this kind of virtue signalling,” one Instagram user wrote.
Another chimed in: “Hell no. Quit telling perfectly healthy people to take this so-called vaccine.”
Another said: “No thanks! With a 99% survival rate, I shall pass. With Bill Gates involved I will not get one.”
Some simply said it was “disappointing” while others said they did not want to be a “lab rat”.
Her Facebook and Twitter were also full of anti-vaxx comments.
“Love you! But going to decline,” one wrote on Facebook.
Some pointed out that she could have publicly back vaccines a bit earlier. “You could have told people that covid wasn’t a ‘dem hoax.’ You could have told people Covid wasn’t going to ‘disappear like a miracle,’ or with the ‘warmer weather’,” user Jo wrote.

Other key members of the Trump administration have also received the vaccine. Vice-President Mike Pence did his on television sporting a little short-sleeved shirt, while Donald and Melania Trump got theirs but did not publicise it.
Whatever our feelings are about the Trump family, we say well done to Ivanka for promoting the vaccine.
