But several people responded that they wouldn't do the same, and some spread conspiracy theories about the vaccine.
Many users simply posted messages like "No," Nope," or "Why?" Others claimed that she was making a mistake.
The Associated Press reported that she received the Pfizer vaccine in Florida, where people 16 and above are eligible. She told the AP in a statement that "getting vaccinated is our best way to beat this virus and protect ourselves and others."
The AP reported, citing two sources, that Trump had been eligible for vaccination when she was working at the White House but chose to wait.
As Insider's Eliza Relman reported, Trump is the first member of her immediate family to publicize that she got vaccinated. Her father, former President Donald Trump, was quietly vaccinated alongside the first lady in January.
