Arnold Schwarzenegger channels the Terminator while receiving his coronavirus jab

21 January 2021

Arnold Schwarzenegger channelled his ‘Terminator’ character while receiving his shot of the coronavirus vaccine.

The 73-year-old posted a Twitter video of himself getting a shot at a drive-through site at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

"Today was a good day," he wrote. "I have never been happier to wait in a line. If you're eligible, join me and sign up to get your vaccine."

He added: "Come with me if you want to live!" - a line from the Terminator franchise.

Arnie joins fellow celebrities Martha Stewart, Judy Dench and Steve Martin who have already been vaccinated.

Continuing the movie references, he says: "Put that needle down," a semi-quote from one of his lesser-known films Jingle All The Way, in which he screams at a neighbour eating his wife's cookies: "Put that cookie down now!"

After receiving the vaccine, the Hollywood star then turned and winked at the camera and added: "Alright, I just got my vaccine, and I will recommend it to anyone and everyone."
