Some appreciated her for issuing a public apology, however, many of the internet users are still not convinced with her public apology and continued to bash her for getting vaccinated out of her turn.
A user asked if she would go for a second shot of vaccine which is scheduled 21 days after the first dose, the actress refused.

Last week the actress came under fire after a video of her getting vaccinated at home against COVID-19 went viral. It is being alleged that the actress took advantage of her connections with the family of a federal minister to get the vaccine.
The actress allegedly got vaccinated against coronavirus along with the family of Federal Minister Chaudhry Tariq Bashir Cheema at his residence. Chaudhry heads the Federal Ministry of Housing and Works.
Omar immediately responded to the online vitriol on her Twitter account. She denied allegations of using her privilege to get vaccinated against coronavirus by jumping the queue. “I would like to clarify this was a booster shot of a Cansino (trial) vaccine received from UHS who also provided the previous shot. It’s not illegal or privilege,” wrote Omar.
The federal minister also rejected the allegations adding that it was the trial vaccine that she was injected with.
The actress, however, was forced to delete the tweet since her statement failed to satisfy netizens.
Social media users bashed her for criticizing Prime Minister Imran Khan for lawlessness, injustice, and moral corruption by himself and party members, yet she violated all the rules set by the government for the vaccination campaign in the country.
