Home and Away star Sam Frost confirms she WILL get the Covid vaccine in major backflip after comparing mandates to ‘segregation’

Sam Frost, who starred in Home and Away, has reversed her anti-vax position, admitting that she would get vaccinated against Covid-19, but only after Channel Seven’s ‘no jab, no job’ deadline.

The 32-year-old actress stated on Tuesday that she will be completely vaccinated by late February, around seven weeks after the network’s vaccination mandate for all presenters, cast, and staff takes effect on January 10.

Sam’s character Jasmine Delaney will be ‘written out momentarily’ since she won’t be permitted on the Palm Beach set until she’s been doubly vaxxed.

The former Bachelorette stated that she couldn’t have the shot sooner because she had a’medical operation scheduled for January.’

She also stated that she would not be leaving the show indefinitely and that she has the full backing of Seven executives.

Sam might get the Novavax vaccine, which was just submitted to the TGA for provisional clearance, when she gets her shot in February.

If successful, it will be Australia’s fourth coronavirus vaccine, following AstraZeneca, Pfizer, and Moderna.

Many vaccine-skeptical Australians are opting for the protein-based Novavax over the mRNA and vector-based vaccines since it uses older, “tried and true” vaccination methods.

It’s unclear whether Sam fits into this group; nonetheless, she earlier stated that she didn’t want the vaccine for medical reasons that she didn’t specify.

‘I’m not going to leave Home and Away.’ ‘I’ve scheduled a medical surgery for January, so I won’t be properly vaxxed until mid to late February,’ she explained on Instagram Stories.

‘I’m going to be written out for a while.’ Jazzy is taking a break from the screen for a few weeks, but I’ll be back.’

‘My managers are fantastic; we’ve been in open communication for months,’ she continued. ‘I’m grateful that we were able to come up with a solution that worked for everyone.’
