Friends actress Rachel Bloom stated earlier this week that she has “lost a couple individuals from [her] weekly routine” because they refused to get the Covid vaccine.
Given that she had been vaccinated, several of her Instagram followers have questioned why she was so concerned.
“Because you may still give it to me if you have the variation,” she wrote on Thursday.
“I could get a little sick, but I’m not going to the hospital or dying.”
“I may, however, offer it to someone who does not have the vaccination and whose health is impaired (or who has a preexisting existing illness), putting their life in jeopardy.”
The actress made the remarks on her Instagram story, which allows users to share photos, videos, and messages for a 24-hour period.
Aniston stated in an interview with InStyle published on Tuesday: “There is still a sizable anti-vaxxer population, as well as those who refuse to listen to the facts. It’s such a pity.”
“It was sad that I recently lost a few folks in my weekly routine who hesitated or refused to divulge [whether or not they had been vaccinated]. Since we aren’t all podded up and tested every day, I believe it is your moral and professional duty to enlighten.”
“It’s hard because everyone has the right to their own view,” she said, “but a lot of ideas don’t seem to be founded on anything other than fear or propaganda.”
Aniston is one of the most well-known actresses in the world, owing to her role as Rachel on the American comedy Friends.
The ensemble of the programme made headlines earlier this year when they reunited on television for the first time in 17 years.
When Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram in 2019, she set a new record (which has since been surpassed), with 37 million followers.
CNN fired three workers earlier this week when they returned to work without being immunised.
CNN’s CEO, Jeff Zucker, stated that the network has a “zero tolerance policy on this.”
On Thursday in the United Kingdom, Amanda Pritchard, the new NHS chief executive, advised unvaccinated young individuals to be vaccinated, calling it “critical.”
More than 46 million individuals in the UK have received at least one dose of coronavirus vaccine as part of the country’s largest ever immunisation campaign.
According to the administration, these high vaccination rates have built a “protective wall” that is strong enough to lift legislative limitations on social interaction.
The first vaccinations are now available to anybody aged 16 and above, as well as youngsters over the age of 12 who are at a higher risk of contracting Covid.
Vaccines are “the greatest method to protect yourself and others” from Covid, according to the NHS website, since they lower the risk of individuals becoming very ill or dying from the virus, as well as their chances of contracting or transmitting it.
They do warn, however, that even those who have been vaccinated can get and spread coronavirus.
They claim that while minor side effects are frequent, more significant ones like allergic responses or blood clotting are uncommon.
While Aniston has openly endorsed vaccinations, other celebrities such as Ian Brown of the Stone Roses, Van Morrison, and Eric Clapton have expressed reservations.
Clapton called his vaccination experience “disastrous” and blamed “propaganda” for exaggerating the vaccine’s safety.
He, Brown, and Richard Ashcroft have all backed out of festival performances due to their unwillingness to perform at venues that require proof of vaccination.
The government aims to impose a rule mandating two jabs to enter nightclubs and other events in England by the end of September.
