“Get vaccinated. Then get a glass of wine with your friends,” the former secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee tweeted Friday along with a wine glass emoji.

The former first lady and wife of former President Clinton also shared a screenshot of the Post’s tweet that included photos of the couple drinking wine and gathering with friends at an outdoor restaurant in New York City earlier in the week.
The Post reported that the couple arrived with Secret Service protection to the French restaurant Le Bilboquet in Manhattan, which the Post referred to as “a posh Upper East Side restaurant.”
The photos published by the Post showed the Clintons speaking with friends, including English actress, film producer and director Trudie Styler.
Hillary Clinton could be seen wearing a mask in one of the photographs, though she and others in the group did not appear to be wearing them as they dined together at the restaurant.
Updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released earlier this month said that individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no longer have to wear masks in most settings.
The Clintons, who both got vaccinated earlier this year, have previously participated in campaigns to encourage Americans to get the shot.

“It will protect you and those you love from this dangerous and deadly disease,” he added.
The former presidents also shared what they were looking forward to once the pandemic ends, with Clinton saying that he was anticipating going “back to work” and being “able to move around” and Obama saying he wanted to see Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaPelosi: George Floyd daughter’s prediction that he would ‘change the world’ is coming true Jill Biden recognizes Fauci as an ‘American hero’ Michelle Obama shows support for foundation created to honor Kobe, Gigi Bryant’s memory MORE’s mother and “hug her and see her on her birthday.”
