Channel 7 makes COVID vaccinations mandatory in the wake of Sam Frost’s controversial video

Channel 7 has declared that all staff will need to be double-jabbed by January 10 in response to Sam Frost’s recent revelation that she will not be getting vaccinated against COVID.

After CEO James Warburton stated in mid-October that the network did not require vaccines, the protocol has been changed.

“To create the safest possible work environment for cast, crew and presenters, Seven Productions have made the decision to only engage people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, taking effect in January next year,” a spokeswoman told the Herald Sun.

“Vaccination is strongly recommended by Seven to safeguard our employees, their coworkers, and their families.”

It has cast doubt on Sam Frost’s future on Home and Away when she revealed in an emotive video that she will not be taking the vaccination.

Last month, the former Bachelorette made national news after admitting she had “valid reasons” for not getting the vaccine but choosing to keep them hidden, and then expressing “empathy” for others who want to stay unvaccinated.

She added in the now-deleted five-minute video, “I was extremely worried about filming a video or even speaking up about this type of abuse.”


“However, I feel that the world is reaching a stage where there is a lot of division and harsh judgement, and it’s taking a toll on my mental health.”

“There are many various reasons why individuals don’t get vaccinated, and it might be due to their medical history, their worries, their family history, or religious beliefs.”

Sam said there are a “few reasons” she won’t be taking the vaccine, but she didn’t say what they were.

“I’ve discussed it with my doctor and psychologist, and I’m going to keep it secret. So I’ve talked to a doctor about it, and I’ve made my decision “she stated

Her usage of the term “segregation” and her refusal to be vaccinated sparked an outcry from fans and fellow celebrities across the internet.

Sam went two weeks without posting on Instagram before reactivating it last week.

Upon her comeback to social media, the 32-year-old stated she had received “thousands and thousands of nice messages.”

She stated on her Instagram Stories, “Thank you for the incredible amount of support and love over the past several weeks.”

“Thousands upon thousands of kind notes and emails were sent to me. You have no idea how much I appreciate that.”

Sam proceeded to thank the people who had supported her throughout her life.

“Incredibly thankful for my friends, family, and coworkers who held my hand and loved me unconditionally during the storm,” she added.

She ended her statement by signing off, “Kindness always comes out on top. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, xxx.”
