Australian actress Isabel Lucas sparked widespread backlash in 2020 after speaking out against vaccination mandates and lockdowns amid the Covid pandemic.
And now, the former Home and Away star has been candid about her decision to throw the jab, admitting she knew there’s “a high probability that sharing this will mean I won’t be working for years.”
Speaking to Stellar magazine, the 37-year-old said she had “multiple” vaccinations growing up but decided against getting vaccinated against Covid.

“For me, I guess what might be right for you might not be right for me, but it’s not right for any of us to have agency taken away,” she explained.
“Our relationship with our bodies is very personal and deeply complex, as are our choices, and we claim to have conversations about inclusion and diversity — you know, gender, religion, sexuality, race — without allowing our beliefs or observations to be acknowledged.” , she continued.
“In my experience, the variety of options still needs to be taken into account.”
Last November, Isabel said she was “pro-choice” on the Covid vaccine.
She later clarified her remarks on Instagram, saying she had “concerns about the ‘mandatory’ vaccination, not the vaccination itself.”
