Amy Schumer wore a sequin-covered dress with a hole cut in one sleeve to get her COVID-19 vaccine.
She said on Instagram that she wore the dress in support of the charity Pencils4Kids.org.
Dolly Parton previously wore a glittery shirt with sleeve cutouts to get her dose of the shot.
On Monday, the comedian shared a video on Instagram, in which she's seen driving to her appointment while singing Whitney Houston's "How Will I Know." Schumer changed the lyrics to say "How will I know/If we're getting the vaccine" in her video.
The Instagram post also included clips of her getting the shot. For the occasion, she paired black leggings and sneakers with a gold, long-sleeved party dress.
One of the sleeves had a hole cut on her arm below her shoulder, making it easier for her nurse to give her the vaccine.
Schumer seemingly took a style cue from Dolly Parton, who previously wore a sparkly sweater with shoulder cutouts to receive her vaccine in early March.

But in the caption of her Instagram post, Schumer explained that her outfit also benefits the charity Pencils4Kids.org. The organization's website says it's a nonprofit that donates school supplies to students in rural Jamaica.
Schumer wrote that every person who takes a picture of themselves dresses up for a COVID-19 vaccine appointment and uses the hashtag "#downtogown" $5 will be donated to the organization.
"Thank you heroes," she continued. "You are selfless and your humanity inspires us all. I love you New York and everyone working at this site."
While at her appointment, Schumer took some time to speak to others in the room and give a brief comedy routine.
"I just wanted to maybe entertain some of the workers here during our 15 minutes," Schumer says in her video. "But I'm sorry if you were going to use this as time to meditate."
"I know some people are scared of getting the vaccine, but I was like, 'I don't care what's in there, you know?' I'm like, shoot it into my p----, I don't care," she said.
The comedian also shared some humor in the caption of her post, where she thanked "all the brave people in the medical field."
"But more than them I want to give a shout out to me," Schumer continued. "I'm awesome. I love the people of New York. Even the annoying ones. It's nice to see all of them. I feel excited and hopeful. I hope you do too."
