Arnold Schwarzenegger gets coronavirus vaccine and urges others: ‘Come with me if you want to live’

Arnold Schwarzenegger has had his first dose of coronavirus vaccine, and encouraged others to do the same by quoting one of his most famous film roles.

The actor shared a video on Instagram on Wednesday of him getting the vaccine while sat in his car.

He told his followers that he had ‘never been happier to wait in line’ and used an iconic line of dialogue from The Terminator to hammer home his point.

Arnie, 73, said: ‘Today was a good day. I have never been happier to wait in a line.

‘If you’re eligible, join me and sign up to get your vaccine. Come with me if you want to live!’

In the clip the star, wearing a black face mask, jokingly told the nurse administering the vaccine to ‘put that needle down!’, seemingly in reference to the line ‘put that cookie down’ from his film Jingle All The Way.

The jab was administered in seconds, and the nurse told him ‘All done!’ when it was over, sticking a plaster on his arm.

Sharing the video on his Facebook page, the Expendables actor posted a further message urging his followers to ‘listen to experts’ about the vaccine.

He wrote: ‘Dr. Fauci and all of the virologists and epidemiologists and doctors have studied diseases and vaccines for their entire lives, so I listen to them and I urge you to do the same. None of us are going to learn more than them by watching a few hours of videos.

‘It’s simple: if your house in on fire, you don’t go on YouTube, you call the damn fire department. If you have a heart attack, you don’t check your Facebook group, you call an ambulance. If 9 doctors tell you you have cancer and need to treat it or you will die, and 1 doctor says the cancer will disappear, you should always side with the 9.

‘In this case, virtually all of the real experts around the world are telling us the vaccine is safe and some people on Facebook are saying it isn’t.

‘In general, 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.’

Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Tom Jones, Dame Judi Dench, Prue Leith and Dame Joan Collins are among the celebrities who have been vaccinated.
