General Hospital’s stars are split on the COVID vaccine mandate controversy, and it’s spilling over onto social media sites like Twitter.
This is approved by my union, the @sagaftra, because I work on a set with unmasked, unvaccinated actors. Nancy Lee Grahn, who portrays Alexis Davis, tweeted on August 12: “End of story.”
People who refuse to get immunised believe they know more than the world’s leading experts, the best scientists, who agree that this vaccine is safe and necessary to reduce our chances of dying or getting seriously ill, and causing this for people who can’t get immunised,” she said.
A day earlier, Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) revealed that he and Bradford Anderson (Damian Spinelli) would have to postpone their Stone Cold and the Jackal August tour due to Burton’s positive COVID test result.
As he explained in an Instagram video he posted, “I was exposed at work.” He didn’t show any signs of illness. As of August 17, his Instagram profile read: “All is well.”
According to Ingo Rademacher (Jasper “Jax” Jacks), who posted about a No Vaccine Passport Rally on August 21 in his Instagram stories, vaccinations aren’t required in order to travel. When #FireIngo began to trend, Ingo addressed it in an Instagram video on August 25. When it comes to propagating a virus, he added, “Getting immunised does not stop you.” According to the CDC, this is the case. If you’re going to mandate a vaccination and it’s not going to help stop the spread of the disease, that’s nothing short of insane.
This person’s post on Instagram has been updated to include a link to the CDC’s COVID-19 information and the vaccine. Unvaccinated people are more likely to catch COVID-19 than those who have been fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
