In the interview alongside Chloe Lattanzi, 35, the Grease star, when asked if she’d take the injection, told The Herald Sun: “Not at this point, no.”
While Newton-John, 72, failed to elaborate upon her reasoning, Lattanzi went on to share her outlandish views on vaccinations, stating that she’s against “putting mercury and pesticides in [her] body”.
Lattanzi, who said she believes “real medicine is what comes from the earth”, runs a medicine cannabis farm with her husband, James Driskill, and has no scientific or medical qualifications.
Despite claiming she’s “not an anti-vaxxer”, Newton-John’s daughter added that she believes people only “trust vaccines because the doctor says it’s safe”.
Since the arrival of the Covid-19 vaccine, many people opposing injections have taken to the streets in protest. On Saturday (30 January), one of the largest vaccination sites in America was forced to shut down when maskless, anti-vaxxer protesters blocked the entrance of Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium.
The UK government plans to offer 13.9 million people (21 per cent of the population) a first dose of the vaccine by the middle of February.
Those spreading conspiracy theories surrounding vaccinations are being widely criticised. Earlier this month, actor Miriam Margolyes was praised for tearing into anti-vaxxers during a typically entertaining interview on Good Morning Britain.
In 2019, it was revealed that Newton-John was using marijuana for medical purposes having been diagnosed with breast cancer for a third time in 2017.
Doctors said that, while her condition is incurable, it can be managed through treatment.
At the time, Newton-John said she had decided to use "everything she can" to get stronger and, in an interview with 60 Minutes Australia, stated that she had no plans to find out her life expectancy.
