Kim Cattrall, 64, receives first Covid vaccine after New York expands jab eligibility to over-60s

Kim Cattrall received her first coronavirus vaccine on Wednesday after the state of New York expanded the jab eligibility to over-60s.

The Sex And The City star, 64, took to Instagram to share a photo of herself receiving the vaccination as she praised NY for the development amid the pandemic.

In the photo, Kim, who owns a lavish apartment in Manhattan, wore a black face mask as a medical professional administered the jab into her arm.

The actress penned: ‘They’ve expanded the vaccine eligibility age in New York! Made my appt yesterday and got the shot this morning. Good work NY! ❤️.’ 

Kim did not share what vaccine she received although it is believed that the following Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer and Moderna are available to residents. 

It was announced earlier this week by governor Andrew Cuomo that the state of New York had expanded the jab eligibility to over-60s.

The new development means pharmacies can vaccinate anyone eligible with the roll out starting on Wednesday.

Kim joins a collection of stars who have been vaccinated against coronavirus with Stephen Fry, Phillip Schofield, Lorraine Kelly and James Norton also getting their jabs back in the UK this week.  

The US is now vaccinating a sustained two million people a day, according to data from Bloomberg.

Two million COVID-19 shots were administered earlier this month, keeping the seven-day rolling average of doses administered a day to two million for the second day in row.

It puts the Biden administration well ahead of the president’s goal of giving 100 million shots in his first 100 days in office.

Jabbed: Fellow morning TV host Lorraine Kelly, 61, received the Oxford/ AstraZeneca vaccine on Sunday, taking to Twitter to share the milestone moment in the UK

 Phillip Schofield, 58, and Lorraine Kelly, 61, (L-R) became the latest celebrities getting their Covid vaccinations back in the UK this week 

It is a feat that was well within reach even before vaccine makers increased supplies and third shot, Johnson & Johnson’s one-dose vaccine, was authorised at the end of February.

More than 82.5 million doses have been administered since the US vaccine rollout began on December 14. More than half of seniors 65 or older have gotten at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine, White House officials announced on Friday. 

Only recently, it was revealed that A Sex In The City revival titled And Just Like That… was confirmed.

She confirmed that the HBO Max miniseries will address the COVID-19 pandemic and the effect it has had on the show’s iconic setting of New York City

Sarah also recently clarified that there will not be a fourth main character replacing Kim’s Samantha Jones, after the British actress refused to return to the franchise.

In perfect Carrie Bradshaw fashion, she told YouTuber Adam Glyn: ‘We’re not looking to create a fourth character, we have New York City as a fourth character and it will be an interesting new character that we are excited about.’ 

Candace Bushnell, 62, who wrote the 1996 book on which the show is based, said the new instalment will work without Samantha, recently telling Page Six: ‘You know what, I think it’s fine. Kim is a grown woman. 

‘She is 64 and she’s made a decision that I’m sure she has 10 very good reasons for and I respect her for that.’

She added: ‘Kim should be happy — and I think she is happy. I think that her character Samantha is always going to be an inspiration to them. So somehow, I imagine she’ll be there in spirit and as an inspiration.’
