Jane was masked up in a patterned face covering and she also wore gold-rimmed sunglasses.

She had on a white sleeveless blouse and pulled down her dark zip sweater to expose her shoulder. 

She gave a thumbs up as an essential worker approached her arm with blue gloves and a needle.

‘Got vaccinated today! Yay!’ Fonda captioned the post. ‘It doesn’t hurt,’ she concluded, before adding the hashtag #vaccine.

The octogenarian activist joins a growing list of older stars who have posted shots to social media in which they received their dose of the vaccine, which includes former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Fonda’s post comes a week after it was announced that she would be receiving the Cecil B. DeMille Award at the 2021 Golden Globes next month.

The award, which honors outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment, has previously been awarded to the likes of Walt Disney, Bette Davis, Jane’s father Henry Fonda, Oprah Winfrey and most recently, Tom Hanks.

Fonda has portrayed the uptight Grace on the hit Netflix series Grace And Frankie opposite Lily Tomlin for six years running.

But her incredible and decorated screen career goes back over 60 years, ever since a featured role in 1960’s Tall Story. 

She went on to hold her own opposite Robert Redford in the Neal Simon adaptation Barefoot In The Park in 1967, before becoming a sci-fi pinup in Barbarella the following year.

Jane then went on to win a pair of Best Leading Actress Oscars in the 1970s, first for 1971’s Klute, in which she played a New York City call girl.

Her next Oscar gold came in 1978, for the war and trauma-themed film Coming Home opposite Jon Voight.

Other more than memorable roles came in 1980’s 9 To 5, opposite her Grace And Frankie costar Tomlin along with Dolly Parton, as well as her ‘comeback’ turn alongside Jennifer Lopez in 2005’s Monster In Law.

Fonda also took the fitness world by storm in the 80s, releasing an enormously successful at-home workout series just as VHS tapes and VCRs became standard in American homes.

And if that weren’t enough, Jane has developed a major reputation as an activist for the environment as well as human rights, having been arrested on multiple occasions quite recently while protesting for what she believes in.

She will be awarded the Cecil B. DeMille Award at this year‘s Golden Globes ceremony, which will be held on February 28th.
