Dr. Fauci Predicts When We'll Return to Normal

  Dr. Fauci Predicts When We'll Return to Normal "Together with a vaccine, I believe in 2021 we will see this behind us. It’s not going to happen in the first few months. If we do it correctly, hopefully, as we get into the end of the summer, the beginning of the fall of 2021, we can start to approach some degree of normality.""Well, the pandemic emerged from the standpoint of a societal issue at the worst possible time," said Dr. Fauci, when asked to look back on this "tough year," "because anybody who views what's going on throughout the world, but particularly in our own country, there's a great deal of divisiveness in the country.

After more than a year of living through a pandemic, getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is a really big deal—and Amy Schumer made sure to dress for the occasion.

Schumer, 39, shared through a series of Instagram Stories that she wore her "fanciest dress" to get vaccinated against the virus. She chose a striking bronze sequined dress to celebrate the occasion, with a special hole cut out of the left arm, right where she could receive her vaccine.

While waiting to get the jab, Schumer also apparently gave fellow vaccine-getters a quick comedy show. "Some people are scared of getting the vaccine," she said in the Instagram Stories video. "I don't care what's in there, you know? Shoot it in my p—y. I don't care."

I obeyed.

The actress and comedian shared a video of herself the moment she got the COVID-19 vaccine. You can see her grimacing a bit right before the needle goes in, but its over much sooner than she expects. "That's it?" she asked the person who gave her a shot, before letting out a laugh. "We got the vaccine!" she cheered as people around her clapped.

Schumer, like many others, has had a challenging year on top of the pandemic. She revealed in September on Instagram that she was diagnosed with Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi.

"Anyone get LYME this summer?" she wrote in the caption of a throwback photo of herself fishing as a kid. "I got it and I'm on doxycycline. I have maybe had it for years." Schumer also said that she felt "good" and is "excited to get rid of it."

Schumer also shared in April 2020 that she could only visit her father Gordon, who has multiple sclerosis and is in an assisted living facility, from a distance. In a clip she shared to Instagram that's since been removed, Schumer can be seen holding her toddler son Gene, while waving a sign that says, "Hi grandpa! We love you!" at a window where her father is.

But in Mid-march of 2021, Schumer shared in a now-deleted Instagram post that she was finally able to visit with her dad. "Big day. First real visit with my dad in a year," she wrote. "Learned my mom can play the shofar and we started dressing Gene like the guy at the party with drugs. How was your day?"

She ended her vaccine saga on a sweet, thankful note: "Thank you heroes. You are selfless and your humanity inspires us all. I love you New York and everyone working at this site every #downtogown @guyoseary will donate 5 dollars for each suit or dress to pencils4kids.org thanks guy!"
