Sean Penn, 60, calls himself a 'lucky man' after sharing a photo of himself getting the coronavirus vaccine

 Sean Penn could breathe a sigh of relief on Tuesday after sharing a photo of himself receiving the coronavirus vaccine.

The 60-year-old actor posted an image of himself getting a shot in the arm on Twitter, though he didn't specify if it was his first or second shot.

'I'm a lucky man,' he wrote while thanking the Los Angeles Fire Department and the 'frontline' staff members at his CORE organization, which has been helping to administer COVID-19 tests around Los Angeles.

'We test & vaccinate thousands per day. We need your support to get more people lucky,' he continued, before urging his 92.6 thousand followers to donate to CORE.

Penn was seated in a rolling chair as he received the vaccine while dressed casually in a navy T-shirt over a white long-sleeve shirt and black track pants, along with white trainers.


He repped his own organization with a black baseball cap and wore a matching black mask to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The Oscar winner pulled up his sleeve as another man injected him in his upper arm.

Currently, Los Angeles County is offering the coronavirus vaccine to people over 65, who are at greater risk of serious complications or death if they contract the virus, as well as the staff and residents of long-term care facilities and healthcare workers.

The rollout across California has been going slowly, as counties have quickly run out of their shipments.

California Governor Gavin Newsom shook up the vaccine distribution on Monday when he announced that the state would now be using an age-based system to determine who can get the vaccine.

Although details weren't announced, the state may now open up vaccinations to people over 50, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The original tier two plans were to give priority to people in prison and unhoused individuals, as well as people working in transportation and manufacturing, who are at greater risk of contracting the coronavirus, but those people may not have to wait if they're too young.

manufacturing, transportation and commercial and residential settings along with incarcerated people and homeless people would be prioritized.

Although vaccine allotments are expected to go up 16 percent in the next three weeks, according to Cal Matters, people with health conditions that make the vulnerable to the virus may have to wait months before getting vaccinated.
