    Martha Stewart "waited in line" to receive the coronavirus vaccine

    The 79-year-old star insisted she didn't receive any special treatment as she was given the injection near the New York City medical facility named in her honour


    In a social media video, she said: "I was vaccinated today in a designated vaccine pod near the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Downtown.

    "To allay your concerns that I jumped the line know that I am in the approved age group for this batch of vaccines and I waited in line with others."

    Martha - who is "looking forward to the booster" after receiving her first dosage - also took the time to express her gratitude towards the medical personnel during their bit during the pandemic.

    She added: "[I am] so proud of and grateful to the doctors, nurses and medical staff who are wading through the red tape and confusion of the distribution of these very important vaccines."

    And she called on everyone to continue working hard to help bring an end to the global health crisis.

    She said: "The doctors told me 10,000 applications were received by Mount Sinai right after the state released this batch of vaccines.

    "Here’s to the advancement of science and a heartfelt thanks to those working on the vaccines. We are all hoping for an end to this pandemic."

    Meanwhile, she has spent most of the pandemic at her farm in Bedford, New York - which is where she films her show 'Martha Knows Best' - and lows the peace and quiet.

    Reflecting on the winter months, she recently said: "I love to go out on the snowplough, because I like to just see what's going on at the farm, first of all, and I love snow.

    "I get lost out there, nobody can reach me, I can't hear my phone. It's so nice."
