Home and Away star Sam Frost has been released as unvaccinated in an emotional video.
The actress, 32, called for ‘less judgment’ towards Australia’s unvaccinated population and admitted that her mental health has struggled as a result.
‘I really hesitated to make a video or even talk about that kind of thing, but I feel like it’s reaching a point now in the world where there’s a lot of separation,’ she said.
Speaking: Home and away star Sam Frost has emerged as unvaccinated in an emotional video shared on Instagram on Saturday
‘There are a lot of harsh judgments and opinions that are thrown around a lot and it definitely takes its toll on my mental health and I know people around me are struggling – especially if they are on the side they do not want to be vaccinated, for whatever reason.
‘There are many different reasons why people are not vaccinated, and it may be because of their medical history, their concerns, they may have family history, it may be religious reasons.’
Sam then shared that she herself has not been vaccinated, but clarified that she had talked to her doctor as well as her psychologist about her decision.
The star broke down in tears and said: ‘It’s really a hard time being in society right now and you feel like you’re a lesser person and you feel like people are judging you.

‘And you’re too scared to talk about your opinion or your feelings, and part of you will go, “Well, that’s not your damn thing, why am I not! And there are good reasons why I do not is it and I do not want you to judge me. “‘
She explained that it was important for the unvaccinated to take care of their mental health, especially when freedoms return for fully vaccinated Australians.
‘I struggle a lot with my mental health and I like to think that I’m pretty ready for it. I see a psychologist regularly. So I can not imagine what it is like for people who do not have a support network around them, “she said.

Sam then shouted at the country’s management, urging employers to show more support for their unvaccinated workers.
‘What I wish employers would say to their employees is,’ You’re still important, and you’re valued, and you’m no less intelligent or dignified or anything because you’ve made a choice about your body. “
‘I wish there were more people who made us feel less alone.’
She also admitted that she could ‘get in trouble’ for going public as unvaccinated before urging people to treat each other with more kindness and compassion.
It is unclear whether Sam’s choice to remain unvaccinated will affect her role at Home and Away.

Despite not growing up, recent paparazzi photos show Sam wearing her mask outdoors, indicating that she has followed Sydney’s rules and regulations.
She also follows a healthy lifestyle with a good diet and exercise, as shown on her Instagram page.
The former bachelorette has become a mental health advocate in recent years and even started her own mental health initiative in 2015 with her sister called Believe by Sam Frost.
The siblings recently put together a series of youth workshops to help teens deal with bullying, anxiety and social media, and are looking at doing similar workshops for adults.
‘I feel like my purpose is the work I do with Believe. I love my job at Home and Away and it gives me this amazing platform to help get my message across, ‘she told the Daily Telegraph.
From Monday, a number of restrictions will be lifted for fully vaccinated people throughout New South Wales.
According to a revised roadmap to freedom, revealed by Prime Minister Dominic Perrottet after he took over from Gladys Berejiklian, restrictions will ease again for the fully vaccinated when the state hits its 80 percent jab target on October 25th.
The relaxed rules will then also apply to unvaccinated residents on 1 December.
