Australia’s first Pfizer/BioNTech COVID-19 jab was administered to 84-year-old Jane Malysiak on Sunday, February 21.

And now Bachelor star Sam Royce, 30, has seemingly become of the country’s first reality TV stars to receive her first dose of an available COVID-19 vaccine.

‘Feeling very privileged today,’ Sam captioned a photo getting the injection to Instagram on Wednesday.

Sam, who is based in Darwin, Northern Territory, rose to fame on Bachelor Matt Agnew’s season in 2019.

While she didn’t find love on the show, she has since found it with Bachelorette alumni Jarrod Woodgate, 35. 

Raising her polkadot blouse up over her left bicep, a medical professional was seen injecting the needle into her skin. 

Sam works as a public servant, more specifically as a federal agent with the Australian Federal Police.

On Tuesday, Scott Morrison called in the Australian Defence Force to help get the nation’s coronavirus vaccine rollout back on schedule.

Military personnel will be assigned to help vaccinate elderly Australians in aged care facilities in mainly regional and remote areas.

ADF doctors and nurses will undergo training this week.

It’s unclear if Sam is the first Bachelor franchise alumni to get the first COVID-19 vaccination injection.

It’s possible other stars, like those who work in the medical sector, could have also had the jab.

Brittany Hockley works in a Sydney hospital as a radiographer, while Elly Miles and Irena Srbinovska are both experienced nurses.
