“Terminator” actor Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the celebrities who’ve gotten the COVID-19 vaccine. The star shared a short clip of him going through a drive-by vaccine site where he got his injection.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, 73, took to his Instagram account on Wednesday to share a clip of him getting vaccinated for the novel coronavirus disease. This was the star’s first dose of the vaccine.
The actor will only get his second dose in a couple of weeks. Schwarzenegger was recorded while sitting in the passenger seat of a car with his window down to get a vaccine shot on his right arm.

As the healthcare worker prepared his arm for the shot, the actor hilariously asked the worker to put the needle down. He jokingly used the same voice he used on his fan-favorite film franchise, “Terminator.”
The former California governor also kept to the COVID-19 safety guidelines by wearing a face mask. After he received his shot, the star took some time to address his fans and followers.
Taking off his glasses but making sure to keep his mask on, Schwarzenegger confirmed that he’d just gotten his vaccine. He urged his fans to get the COVID-19 vaccine before using a line from “Terminator,” saying:
"Come with me if you want to live."
In the caption of the post, the star called the day of his vaccination a good one. He repeated the iconic “Terminator” line and urged those who were eligible to join him by signing up to get the vaccine and stated:
“I have never been happier to wait in a line.”
When the pandemic hit last year, and the lockdown was implemented, the actor revealed that he was staying fit from the comfort of his home. In a social media post, he shared his exercise method with his fans.
Last week, Martha Stewart took to her Instagram account to share a video of her getting her first dose.
Schwarzenegger encouraged his fans to do sit-ups, push-ups, bent-leg raises, bent-over twists, calf raises, squats, and chin-ups. He noted how one didn’t need to go to the gym to stay fit.
Several stars have already taken the COVID-19 vaccine, including television personality Martha Stewart. Last week, the star took to her Instagram account to share a video of her getting her first dose.
She revealed that she’d gotten her dose at a pod near the Martha Stewart Center for Living. The clip showed her sitting in a chair wearing a face mask before getting injected by a medical professional.
