Harrison Ford Waited Over Two Hours To Receive First Dose Of COVID-19 Vaccine

No star treatment here: he booked the appointment himself.

Harrison Ford reportedly queued in line for over two hours to receive his COVID-19 vaccine.

The Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade star, 78, recently received his first dose of the coronavirus vaccine in Torrance, California, and waited in line for two-and-a-half hours to receive it, Variety reported. 

Harrison had his vaccine at El Camino Community College after booking his appointment himself, as he gave his "thanks to the healthcare professionals and volunteers on the ground".

According to Variety, Hollywood A-listers have been scrambling for the vaccine by using their connections while millions of healthcare workers, older citizens, teachers, and essential workers toil in line. 

There are, however, celebs like Harrison, who got the vaccine on their own. Arnold Schwarzenegger did the same thing too. He received his shot at a drive-thru service at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, California.  Sharing a video on Instagram, he 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! Thanks for checking me in at @Dodgers Stadium, @MayorOfLA! What a crazy surprise. (sic)"

​​​​​​​Steve Martin has also had the coronavirus vaccine.

The Father of the Bride star tweeted: "Good news/Bad news. Good news: I just got vaccinated! Bad news: I got it because I’m 75. Ha! The operation in NYC was smooth as silk ... and hosted to perfection by the US Army and National Guard. Thank you all, and thank you science (sic)"

Patrick Stewart, 80, shared an Instagram video of his vaccine shot on Jan 22. "How do we say thank you to the health workers and scientists for their sacrifice and service?" he wrote in his post. "Receive the vaccine as soon as one can to lessen their load and keep wearing a mask to protect fellow citizens. In my 80th year, I am grateful and hopeful for better days ahead."

Judi Dench got hers on Jan 14. She told BBC Radio 2: "Well what was enjoyable was it was in the next village, and you know, although they were at a huge distance and I can’t see very well, I did wave to a lot of people I thought I knew who were at a great distance. It was frightfully well organised."  — BANG
