“I’m not leaving:” Sam Frost reveals she will be temporarily written off Home and Away after Channel 7 makes vaccinations mandatory

Sam Frost has addressed what it means for her and her character Jasmine Delaney on Home and Away, only one day after Channel Seven made Covid vaccines essential.

Sam’s future on the popular show has been in doubt for weeks when she revealed in an emotional video that she would not be getting the vaccination.

She made global news after admitting she had “valid reasons” not to receive the vaccine but preferred to keep them private in a Facebook post, and then calling for “empathy” for others who refuse to be vaccinated.

Now, the actress has put the rumours to rest by posting a statement on her Instagram storey regarding the continuing predicament.

She began, “I’m not leaving Home & Away.”

“I’ve scheduled a medical operation for January. As a result, I won’t be fully vaccinated until late February.”

After speaking with her superiors, the 32-year-old went on to say that they had chosen to “temporarily” fire Jasmine for a few weeks.

“I’ll be written off for a few weeks since Jazzy is going on an off-screen excursion… but I’ll be returning,” she revealed.

“My managers are fantastic; we’ve been communicating openly for months. We are quite glad that we were able to come up with a strategy that works for everyone.”

In mid-October, Channel Seven CEO James Warburton stated that the network had not required vaccinations.

However, following Sam Frost’s startling revelation, the network has announced that all workers must be double jabbed by January 10.

“In order to create the safest possible working environment for cast, crew, and presenters, Seven Productions has decided to only hire people who are completely vaccinated against COVID-19, which will take 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.”

After sharing her video in which she stated that she had decided against having the vaccination after meeting with “my doctor and my psychologist,” Sam received a lot of hate and took a two-week break from Instagram as a result.

Sam posted on her tales after she returned to the platform that she had gotten “thousands and thousands of nice notes.”

“Thank you for the outpouring of love and support over the last several weeks,” she wrote.
