'Today, I got the shot!' Ivanka shares photos of herself getting first Pfizer vaccine at CVS in Miami as she returns to social media for the first time since Trump left the White House

 Ivanka Trump received her first dose of the Pfizer vaccine on Wednesday, celebrating her vaccination with pictures posted to her social media accounts.

The former first daughter was vaccinated in Miami, Florida, where she’s living with her husband Jared Kushner and their three children. She will get her second shot in a few weeks.

She is the first member of the former first family to post about her vaccination and did so amid rising concern about vaccine hesitancy.

A source close to Ivanka told DailyMail.com that she has full confidence in the vaccines and wanted to address the hesitancy issue.

Dressed in jeans, a white T-shirt, sneakers, and a face mask, Ivanka encouraged people to get vaccinated.

‘Today, I got the shot!!! I hope that you do too! Thank you Nurse Torres!!!,’ she captioned the photos.

She posted about her vaccine because, 'especially during a time of rising levels of vaccine hesitancy, she feels it's vital to underscore the importance of getting vaccinated and to encourage others to do so as soon as they are able,' a source close to Ivanka told DailyMail.com.

'She did so after waiting to be eligible in her home state of Florida and has full confidence in the vaccines available,' the source noted. 

Health experts have raised concerns about the number of people hesitant about being vaccinated and many of those are supporters of former President Donald Trump. A PBS NewsHour/NPR/Marist poll last month showed at least 41 percent of Republicans don't plan to get vaccinated.

Ivanka was given the opportunity to receive the vaccine during her time at the White House but wanted to wait until it was her turn to do so, DailyMail.com has learned.

President Trump and Melania Trump received their vaccinations before leaving the White House in January.

In exclusive photos and video obtained by DailyMail.com, Ivanka posed for pics with people in the pharmacy and joined one customer's FaceTime call.  

Footage shows the former White House senior adviser enthusiastically waving during the video chat that took place inside the story.  

'Hi Vanessa! I made a new friend at CVS. We're both getting our first vaccines together,' she explained while the man next to her held is cellphone in the air.  

'We're vaccine buddies now,' the customer agreed. 

Ivanka, who hasn't posted on Instagram or Twitter since her father left office in January, broke her social media silence to announce she had gotten the vaccine.

The post comes just days after former President Trump bragged about his handling of the pandemic to an audience of Republican Party donors at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, on Saturday.  

He credited himself with the development of the coronavirus vaccines, saying they should be called 'the Trumpcine.' 

While president, Trump pushed vaccine development along with his Operation Warp Speed, and he pointed to that as an example of his success. However, he did not mention the more than 500,000 Americans who have died from COVID-19 

Trump also called the November election in which Joe Biden won 'bulls**t,' according to the Washington Post, which cited an attendee who said he spoke for about an hour at the fundraiser. 

While her father is back to appearing at Republican events, Ivanka has been keeping a low profile in recent weeks. However, she made one girl's day last week when she posed for a picture with her at Disney World.  

She wasp photographed with a young fan named Ella in the photo that made the rounds on the former first daughter's fan accounts. It was originally posted by Instagram user @stevend803, who is presumably the girl's father. 

'Regardless of your political affiliation, a special day for Ella. Got to meet @ivankatrump! So cool!' he wrote.

Ivanka beat the Florida heat in a bleach-print chambray shirt dress that featured a collar and a tie around the waist. 

The mother-of-three paired the short-sleeved frock with white leather sneakers, black cat-eye sunglasses, and a thick gold chain around her neck. She also donned colorful red and pink bracelets on her wrist and a protective face mask. 

Her straight blonde locks were pulled back in a messy ponytail, and she appeared to have hat head. She held a navy Yankees baseball cap in her hand and was likely wearing it around the park to go unnoticed. 

Meanwhile, Ella was decked out in Minnie Mouse ears, a Disney princess-themed dress, and a fanny pack. She also had on a mask, and even though it was covering most of her face, she seemed thrilled to have run into the former first daughter.  

It's unclear who Ivanka was with, but Disney World is only about a four-hour drive from her family's new Miami home, Arte Surfside, one of the city's most sought-after oceanfront buildings. 

It's possible that she spent the day at the 'Happiest Place on Earth' with her husband Jared and their three children: Arabella, nine, Joseph, seven, and Theodore, five. 

The Trump-Kushners have enjoyed a number of family outings since they moved to Miami in January and built a whole new life for themselves — one that is far different than the hectic lifestyles they had in New York City and later Washington. D.C. 

Jared and Ivanka's future career plans remain unknown, but they seem to appreciate being able to kick back with their kids after four years of working as White House senior advisers.
