Actress Isabel Lucas says she is fully vaccinated against everything EXCEPT Covid – and insists she is not anti-vax but ‘pro-choice’


Isabel Lucas has revealed that she is not ‘anti-vax’ – just against the Covid-19 vaccine. 

In a comment shared on her Instagram this week, the former Home and Away star, 36, said she is ‘pro-choice’. 

‘To be transparent, I have actually been vaccinated my whole life, I’m pro-choice’ she wrote.

It comes after the star joined hundreds of anti-vaxxers at a rally to protest Australia’s Covid-19 vaccine mandates at the New South Wales-Queensland border last week. 

She followed the event’s memo to ‘wear white in solidarity’, and shared photos of her fellow anti-vaxxers to her Instagram Stories. 

The protest was part of a series of rallies across the country against mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations for certain industries and occupations.

Last year, Isabel hit headlines when she shared dangerous anti-vaccination views on Instagram while commenting on a post by conspiracy theorist Pete Evans.

Throwing her support behind the former MKR judge, she wrote: ‘Freedom of choice is every human’s right. I don’t trust the path of vaccination.’ 

Isabel has a long history of activism dating back to 2007, when she and fellow actress Hayden Panettiere joined activists on surfboards to try and stop a pod of dolphins being slaughtered in Japan.

In 2020, Isabel also attended a ‘peaceful’ anti-5G protest in Byron Bay, marching from the Jing Organics health food store to the proposed location of a 5G tower.

Recently, bizarre conspiracy theories have circulated on social media claiming that 5G ’causes Coronavirus’ by ‘sucking oxygen out of your lungs’. 

These claims have been debunked by medical experts and technological experts. 

Anti-vaxxers often spread conspiracy theories, claiming that ‘boosting’ the immune system through diet, supplements and sunlight can make people immune to certain diseases. 

Isabel later clarified her remarks on Instagram, saying she has ‘concerns around “mandatory” vaccination, not vaccination itself’.

Vaccinations are vital to reducing the spread of preventable diseases, and any suggestion otherwise flies in the face of science and the advice of medical experts around the globe.   

The Coronavirus vaccine is a safe and vital measure being taken to protect the community from the spread of the virus.  

So far, 94.1 per cent of eligible people are fully vaccinated in NSW, with 90.8 per cent having had at least one dose.
