Arnold Schwarzenegger shares video as he receives coronavirus vaccine: Come with me if you want to live

The Hollywood actor and former California governor, 73, shared a video on Twitter of him being given the jab through the window of his car.

After receiving the jab, he says: “Alright, I just got my vaccine and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.”

He then adds: “Come with me if you want to live.”

In the video Schwarzenegger, who was wearing a mask, sat in the passenger seat as the injection was administered into his upper arm.

He also referenced another of his films, Jingle All The Way, telling the nurse to “put that needle down” – swapping out the word cookie used in the 1996 classic when a love rival describes tasting his wife’s biscuits.

In a tweet, he added: “Today was a good day. I have never been happier to wait in a line.”

Schwarzenegger said he was given the jab at the stadium of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team.

Fans of the star joked about whether he said: “I’ll be back… for the second dose”, another reference to the Terminator film. 

They also pointed out the nineties-style Motorola mobile he had on his dashboard.

He made a plea on Facebook for people to follow scientific guidance on Covid-19 and only go to him to learn about building biceps.

He wrote:  “I think if the circle of people you trust gets smaller and smaller and you find yourself more and more isolated, it should be a warning sign that you’re going down a rabbit hole of misinformation.

“Some people say it is weak to listen to experts. That’s bogus. It takes strength to admit you don’t know everything. Weakness is thinking you don’t need expert advice and only listening to sources that confirm what you want to believe.”

Schwarzenegger, who represented the Republican Party while he was in office, has been a vocal critic of former president Donald Trump.

“I’m rooting for you Joe Biden. Your success is the country’s success,” he tweeted.

Other prominent names to have had the jab include actor Sir Ian McKellen, Great British Bake Off judge Prue Leith and entertainer Lionel Blair, who are all in their eighties.
