Jennifer Aniston Just Said 9 Words About COVID Everyone Should Hear

“We have to care about more than just ourselves,” she reminded fans.

Jennifer Aniston isn't afraid of losing fans who don't agree with her vaccination stance.

In an Instagram story, Aniston further explained her stance when asked by a fan about her "worry about the unvaxxed around her" since she herself has already been vaccinated. Read on to hear what she said back—and to see Aniston looking her best, don't miss these 6 Things Jennifer Aniston Does to Look Amazing.

"If you have the variant, you are still able to give it to me," she explained. "I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die. BUT I CAN give it to someone who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previous existing condition) — and therefore I would put their lives at risk."

"THAT is why I worry. We have to care about more than just ourselves," she continued, following it up with a picture of embroidery reading, "What doesn't kill you mutates and tries again." (She's right, echoing everything Dr. Anthony Fauci has said.)

In Aniston's  InStyle's September cover story, she removed a "large group of people" who "just don't listen to the facts" from her life. "It's a real shame. I've just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and it was unfortunate," she said. "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," she added.

A new study published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday encouraged everyone, even those who have already been infected with COVID-19, to get vaccinated ASAP. It found that people who got Covid-19 in 2020 and went unvaccinated were more than twice as likely to be reinfected in May or June 2021, compared with people who also had Covid-19 but were later fully vaccinated.

"If you have had COVID-19 before, please still get vaccinated," CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said on Friday. "Getting the vaccine is the best way to protect yourself and others around you, especially as the more contagious Delta variant spreads around the country." So get vaccinated, and for more wisdom, don't miss an empowered Britney Spears Having Fun in Bikinis, Talking Turning 40.
