Jennifer Aniston says she's dumping friends who refuse COVID-19 vaccine

Jennifer Aniston has revealed she's dropped friends that either refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine or wouldn't disclose their status. 

Speaking to InStyle magazine, the Friends star said it was "a real shame" when people "don't listen to the facts", saying she'd "lost a few people in her weekly routine" due to their views on the vaccine. 

"It was unfortunate," she added. 

"I feel it's your moral and professional obligation to inform, since we're not all podded up and being tested every single day. 

"It's tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion - but a lot of opinions don't feel based in anything except fear or propaganda." 

In May, Aniston declared herself "fully vaccinated", adding that US citizens were "extremely lucky and privileged to have access to COVID-19 vaccines". 

"Unfortunately, that’s not the case everywhere... and as we know, the health of one of us affects all of us. Thinking about those who do not or will not have the opportunity to get vaccinated and hug their friends and family." 

The US is currently facing a surge in coronavirus cases as the highly contagious Delta variant moves through the country. Just over half of the US population is now fully vaccinated.
