Home and Away cast to face compulsory vaccination rule from next year

From next year, the cast and staff of Home and Away will be required to get vaccinated.

According to the Herald Sun, Andrew Backwell, the Director of Production at Seven West Media (the firm that produces the soap), wrote an email to workers on Friday (October 29) informing them that the network will “only engage fully vaccinated presenters, cast, and crew.”

To continue working after January 10, employees will need to be double-vaccinated.

“To offer the safest possible work environment for cast, crew, and presenters, Seven Productions has made the decision to only engage people who are completely vaccinated against COVID-19, which will take effect in January next year,” a spokeswoman for the network stated.

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

Actress Sam Frost announced on social media earlier this month that she is still unprotected against coronavirus.

On Instagram, the Jasmine Delaney actress posted a video urging “compassion” and “empathy” for individuals who have opted not to get the vaccine.


“Seven actively advocates vaccination for all of our people,” a Seven spokesman told Daily Mail Australia at the time. “All Seven productions completely comply to the public health COVID-19 safe procedures.”

“In addition to other precautionary precautions, the cast and crew of Home and Away undergo COVID-19 testing three times a week.” Sam Frost continues to work on Home and Away while adhering to the established safety standards.”
