Singer and actress Olivia Newton-John says she has no plans to get the COVID-19 vaccine. The 72-year-old “Grease” star told Australia’s the Herald Sun newspaper when asked if she’d get the injection, “Not at this point, no.”
Newton-John, who lives in California and is battling Stage 4 breast cancer, did not elaborate on why she made the decision.
But her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, has previously spoken out about the alleged dangers of the vaccine.
“I’m not an anti-vaxxer,” said Lattanzi, 35. “I’m anti putting mercury and pesticides into my body, which are in a lot of vaccines.” Lattanzi says that “real medicine comes from the earth,” according to Newsweek. She and her husband have a cannabis farm in Oregon.
Newton-John is not the only one who is wary about the COVID-19 vaccine.
Data from a recent Pew Research Center poll reveals that two out of 10 Americans are certain they will not change their minds about refusing to get the vaccine, according to Forbes. Even many healthcare workers are balking.
According to Stateline, only one-third of a panel of 13,000 nurses said they would voluntarily get inoculated. Another third said they would not get the vaccine and the remaining third said they were on the fence, according to the American Nurses Association.
