Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back — for a second dose of the coronavirus vaccine in a few weeks!
The actor and former California governor shared a short video on social media Wednesday of himself getting the shot from the safety of his vehicle. Sitting in the passenger seat, a masked-up Schwarzenegger, 73, is shown receiving the vaccine in his right arm before turning to address the camera.
"All right, I just got my vaccine, and I would recommend it to anyone and everyone," he said, concluding with an iconic (and fitting) line from the Terminator franchise: "Come with me if you want to live."
Added Schwarzenegger in his accompanying caption, "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."
In a follow-up tweet, he wrote, "Thanks for checking me in at @Dodgers Stadium, @MayorOfLA! What a crazy surprise."

Schwarzenegger also celebrated President Joe Biden's inauguration on Wednesday, sharing a photo of the pair on board an airplane and writing, "I'm rooting for you @JoeBiden. Your success is the country's success."
The inauguration comes 10 days after the Commando actor uploaded a video denouncing former President Donald Trump and the deadly riots that broke out in the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, as lawmakers gathered to certify electoral college votes for President Biden's November election win.
In addition to denouncing Trump, 74, for inciting the riots, Schwarzenegger spoke out against "those elected officials who have enabled his lies and his treachery" and called for U.S. citizens to "look past ourselves [and] our partisan disagreements and put our democracy first."
"And we need to heal, together from the trauma of what's just happened. We need to heal, not just as Republicans and Democrats, but as Americans," he added, going on to urge his fans, no matter their political beliefs, to join him in supporting President Biden, 78.
Schwarzenegger joins a list of celebrities over age 65 who have gotten the vaccine, including Judi Dench, Martha Stewart and, recently, Steve Martin.
Earlier this month, Los Angeles officials said a person dies every eight minutes from COVID-19 in the county. And on Saturday, L.A. became the first county in the United States to report 1 million cases since the onset of the pandemic last year.
The United States surpassed 400,000 coronavirus-related deaths on Tuesday. Hours after the grim milestone was reached, President Biden and newly sworn-in Vice President Kamala Harris led a memorial service in the nation's capital, honoring those who had lost their lives to the virus.
