The All I Want For Christmas Is You singer appeared to be in good spirits as she sat in a medical office while being prepped for her initial inoculation.
While the 53-year-old diva said she was ‘excited and nervous a little bit about getting this shot,’ she couldn’t help but sing after getting the prick, sailing into a one of her signature whistle notes – which was half-scream, half-song – upon injection.
High note: Mariah Carey let out a high note – part scream, part singing – while getting her first COVID-19 vaccine injection in a fun Instagram video share on Sunday
Carey was dressed in an all-black ensemble for the appointment, looking casual while clad in graphic t-shirt, matching leggings and knee-high leather boots.
Glamming things up, she accessorized with bangles on her wrists, a set of hoop earrings, and a large pair of sunglasses that she kept on for much of the video.
Her beautiful light brown hair fell onto her shoulders and backside as she prepared to receive her first vaccination. All the while, she kept a facial covering on for the length of the video.
While the medical practitioners in the room discussed the administration of the inoculation, Carey kept speaking to the camera to keep her nerves at bay.
Working the pipes: The hitmaker let out two yelps while being inoculated and referenced her reaction in the post’s caption, which read, ‘Vaccine Side Effect: G6’
Coping mechanism: The singer-songwriter was very talkative before she received her first vaccination and noted that she was trying not to ‘really think about it’
‘This is distracting them from doing their job, but you know how I am, I just talk and don’t really think about it,’ she explained.
She reminded fans how she’s been all about promoting good health habits throughout the pandemic, recalling a video of her washing her hands with her two children Moroccan and Monroe, both aged nine, last March.
