    The acting power couple recently got the COVID-19 vaccine and shared the news on Instagram — and they had a little fun while doing so, too.

    "Finally got 5G," Ryan quipped in his post, which captured him mid-jab.

    "Science is sexy," he quipped on his Instagram story. "The hat? Perhaps not."

    He managed to make another joke about his choice of headwear, posting a pic of himself alongside a snap of Blake wearing a knit hat with the caption, "Who wore it better?"

    Blake cracked wise on her IG, too: "Find you someone who looks at you like I look at the heroic nurse vaccinating me," she posted alongside a pic of herself getting the shot.

    On her IG story, Blake thanked friends "for a year of scientific information and the confidence to make the decision to be vaccinated as soon as it was available to [her]," as well as for "[t]he many years of thoughtful and empathetic medical reporting that ... led [her] here."

    President Joe Biden recently said that all US adults will be eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine by May 1 — but you may be eligible now. Visit the CDC's website to find vaccination information in your state.
