Amanda Kloots, Widow Of Broadway Actor, Gets COVID Vaccine

AMANDA KLOOTS, WIDOW OF NICK CORDERO WHO DIED AFTER A LONG STRUGGLE WITH CORONAVIRUS, GOT HER FIRST DOSE OF THE COVID-19 VACCINE FRIDAY

(CNN) – Amanda Kloots, who lost her husband Broadway star Nick Cordero to coronavirus seven months ago, got her first COVID-19 vaccine Friday.

Kloots had shared her husband’s months-long battle with coronavirus on Instagram before he died in July at the age of 41.

She says she is very grateful to be vaccinated against the disease that left her a widow and a single mom.

The co-host of The Talk” on CBS was criticized by some for jumping the line to get the vaccine, since she is 38.

Right now, the vaccine is only supposed to be available to essential workers and residents over 65 in Los Angeles.

Kloots said she waited in a long line and only got her vaccine after all the appointments had been filled for the day.

She says anyone else could have done the same thing and that “vaccine shaming” should not be happening.
