Vicki Gunvalson seemingly avoided New York City’s vaccine mandate while dining indoors with fellow “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum Tamra Judge. 

In a Thursday post on Judge’s Instagram page, the Bravolebrities are seen drinking mask-less inside a Big Apple establishment.

Gunvalson, 59, previously told the Daily Mail that she has not gotten the vaccine due to “underlying issues.”

“I cannot get the vaccine,” she elaborated. “I’ve got blood clots. I have a health exemption.” 

Page Six has reached out to a rep for Gunvalson for comment. 

New York City’s rule for dining indoors, which went into effect mid-September, does not include medical — or even religious — exemptions.

Despite the vaccine mandate, though, a recent Inside Edition segment reported that a good portion of the city’s restaurants are not asking patrons for ID along with proof of vaccination before seating them inside. 

Gunvalson and Judge’s girls trip comes days after they wrapped filming Season 2 of the “Real Housewives” all-stars spin-off at Dorinda Medley’s Blue Stone Manor estate in The Berkshires, a source told Page Six. 

The sophomore season — which stars Gunvalson, Judge, 54, Medley, 56, Phaedra Parks, Brandi Glanville, Taylor Armstrong, Eva Marcille and Jill Zarin — is expected to premiere on NBC’s Peacock streaming service in 2022. 

Prior to filming the season, Gunvalson shut down a Daily Mail report that she had contracted COVID-19. “You’re not writing a story about an unknown cold I have,” she told the outlet earlier this month. 

“My medical information is not public,” the Coto Insurance founder added. “Whatever happened to privacy? Do you want your medical records all over the internet?”

Back in August, Gunvalson’s son, Mike Wolfsmith, revealed that his decision to get jabbed “broke her heart” — reinforcing speculation that the reality star is anti-vax. 

Though Wolfsmith, 36, and his mother — who reunited this week at Katz’s Deli in New York City — might have differing opinions about the FDA-approved vaccine, Gunvalson’s fiancé, Steve Lodge, seems to be on the same page.

In September, the former Republican gubernatorial candidate for California slammed Lisa Vanderpump after she announced that her TomTom Restaurant & Bar in West Hollywood would be requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test before guests can enter the venue.

“Whatever happened to the right of privacy of your health records?” he said in an Instagram video. “I guess someone forgot to tell them that vaccinated people can also spread and get COVID.”

According to the CDC, COVID-19 vaccines are safe and known to maximize protection from emerging variants — including Delta — while possibly preventing the virus from spreading to others.
