Jennifer Aniston, who recently confirmed that when it comes to seeing people, she’s strictly vax for vax, has slammed comments arguing against her new stance. We stan a pro-vax icon.
In an August 3 interview with InStyle, Aniston opened up about how she is fully vaccinated, and does not want to spend time with anyone who isn’t, especially given the fact that vaccinations are readily available in the US.
“There’s still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don’t listen to the facts,” Aniston told InStyle.
“It’s a real shame. 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.
“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.”
Cutting people out of your life who are anti-vaxxers? Queen shit.
However, the article was shared by Oprah Daily, which is where Aniston was bombarded with comments that disapproved and questioned her vax stance.
Aniston herself even shared the Instagram post made by Oprah Daily to express her disappointment towards the comments section.
One comment, in particular, caught Aniston’s attention, and prompted her to share a full-blown Instagram story response.
The fan asked why she, as someone who is fully vaxxed, would concern herself with whether or not the people around her were jabbed.
“Because if you have the variant, you are still able to give it to me,” Aniston answered on her Instagram story.
“I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die. BUT I CAN give it to someone else who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previously existing condition) — and therefore I would put their lives at risk.
“We have to care about more than just ourselves here.”
To double down on her stance, she also shared a picture of a cross-stitch that read “what doesn’t kill you mutates and tries again,” in reference to the multiple variants of COVID-19 that are constantly appearing.
If you’re able, get vaxxed. It’s our only way out of this mess.
And hey, think of it like this: Jennifer Aniston doesn’t want to hang out with you unless you get jabbed, so that’s a bit of incentive.
Alternatively, you can triple-check to see if you’re eligible for the Pfizer vaccine here.
The best vaccine is the first one you can get, and that’ll be our ticket out of this mess.
