(CNN) -- Country music legend Willie Nelson received the Covid-19 vaccine at a drive-through facility in Texas this week, according to a post he shared on Facebook.

"Getting your COVID vaccine is Willie cool!," said Family Hospital Systems, a locally owned system of freestanding emergency rooms and hospitals in Texas, in a Wednesday Facebook post that included photos of the 87-year-old receiving his shot.

"Get your shot! Take care of yourself and others," Nelson said, sharing the post.

Nelson is one of the more than 1 million people in Texas who have gotten their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccination.

Almost 10.6 million people in the United States have been vaccinated.
