Jennifer Aniston has previously urged people to get the Covid-19 vaccine and has revealed there are several people she has had to cut from her life because of their anti-vaccination beliefs
Jennifer Aniston is standing her ground when it comes to her views on the Covid-19 vaccination.
In May, the Friends star proudly revealed on Instagram that she’d had her second dose of the vaccine and urged others to get the jab.
And now she has revealed that she simply has no time for anti-vaxxers or people who won’t “listen to the facts” when it comes to the science surrounding the injections.
Speaking to InStyle, the 52-year-old admitted that she believes people are avoiding getting the jab due to “fear or propaganda”.
And she revealed that at one stage she had to stop watching the news as much.
“I’ve really had to stop [keeping it on too much],” she said of watching CNN.
“We all went through news fatigue, panic fatigue, during the pandemic because we were hoping one day we would wake up and hear something hopeful, and all we got was more insanity.”
But when discussing those who refuse to have the injection, she labelled it “a real shame”.
She added: “I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate.”
She continued: “I feel it’s your moral and professional obligation to inform, since we’re not all podded up and being tested every single day.
“It’s tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion — but a lot of opinions don’t feel based in anything except fear or propaganda.”
The Along Came Polly star wrote how it felt “soooo good” when she received her second vaccine.
She penned: “We are extremely lucky and privileged to have access to Covid-19 vaccines in the U.S. right now.
“Unfortunately, that’s not the case everywhere… and as we know, the health of one of us affects all of us.
“Thinking about those who do not or will not have the opportunity to get vaccinated and hug their friends and family.”
In the US, CDC data says that over 99.99% of those fully vaccinated have not suffered a breakthrough case of Covid-19 – which is when you contact the virus despite being immunised – which has led to hospitalisation or death.
However, there has been a surge in cases reported as the Delta variant sweeps the country.
