Sam Frost, who starred in the TV show Home and Away, is said to have received two vaccinations.
Sam, 32, joined the Channel Seven soap as Jasmine Delaney in 2017 and left in December, two months after revealing she had not received the Covid vaccine.
On Monday, Sam’s co-star Lynne McGranger told Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa that she was fully vaccinated, indicating that she could return to the show.
Seven Productions has a policy requiring all cast and crew to be Covid-vaccinated; however, sources claim Sam’s departure last year had nothing to do with the mandate.
‘Of course, there were some issues getting her vaccinated, but I’m here to tell you she’s double vaccinated, and possibly boosted as well,’ Lynne revealed.
‘She needed to be with her family, and they’re down in Melbourne,’ she continued, ‘but the door is definitely open for her to return, and I’m sure she’s in negotiations with producers right now.’
Sam, a former Bachelorette, finished filming her final scenes for Home and Away at Sydney’s Eveleigh Studios last month.
To be closer to her friends and family, the actress relocated to Melbourne.
In October, Sam sparked outrage by revealing she had not received the Covid vaccine and comparing restrictions on the unvaccinated to’segregation.’
‘I was really hesitant about doing a video or even speaking up about this sort of thing, but I feel like it’s getting to a point now in the world where there’s a lot of segregation,’ she said in a tearful Instagram video.
‘There’s a lot of harsh judgment and opinions being thrown around a lot, and it’s definitely affecting my mental health, and I know people around me are struggling, especially if they don’t want to get vaccinated for whatever reason.’
‘There are many different reasons why people do not get vaccinated, and it could be due to their medical history, their concerns, their family history, or religious beliefs.’
Sam then claimed she hadn’t been vaccinated, but that she had discussed her decision with both her medical doctor and a psychologist.
‘It’s a really hard time to be in society right now, and you feel like you’re less of a human, and you feel like people judge you,’ she added tearfully.
‘And you’re too afraid to express your thoughts or feelings, and a part of you wants to leave,’ “It’s none of your business why I’m not here! And there are valid reasons for this, and I don’t want you to pass judgment on me “”‘ ‘
Sam deactivated her main Instagram account and blocked all comments on the account for her mental health charity Believe after receiving backlash for her video.
In December, Channel Seven announced Sam’s departure from Home and Away.
While the cast and crew of Home and Away are required to get vaccinations, a network source said her departure had nothing to do with the policy.
