    Olivia Newton-John’s personal views on the Covid-19 vaccine are said to be odds with her own cancer foundation, according to a new report.

    The pop singer, 72, established the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre at Melbourne’s Austin Hospital in 2012, and like all reputable health providers it is promoting the Covid jab as a safe and effective way to limit the spread of the virus.

    But Newton-John herself doesn’t seem to be very enthusiastic the vaccine.

    The Grease star raised eyebrows in January when she and her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, who is an outspoken anti-vaxxer, said they had no plans to get the shot. 

    ‘Not at this point, no’, said the natural medicine advocate, who is currently being treated for stage-four breast cancer.

    These comments have sparked tension among staff at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre who are working tirelessly to encourage patients to get the vaccine, reports The Sydney Morning Herald. 

    The newspaper alleges some employees ‘quietly freaking out’ about how to handle the fact the centre’s patron isn’t ‘singing from the same songsheet’.

    A spokesperson said on Thursday: ‘Austin Health is proud to be leading the rollout of the Covid vaccine.

    ‘The vaccine is safe and effective and our greatest defence against the virus.’

    The hospital spokesperson made no mention of Newton-John’s stance on vaccines.

    Daily Mail Australia has contacted Newton-John and the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Centre for further comment. 

    It comes after the Xanadu actress raised eyebrows in January when she expressed hesitancy about getting vaccinated against Covid.

    In the same interview with the The Herald Sun, Olivia’s daughter Chloe took the opportunity to share her bizarre and unscientific beliefs about vaccines. 

    ‘I’m not an anti-vaxxer, I’m anti putting mercury and pesticides in my body, which are in a lot of vaccines,’ proclaimed Chloe, who runs a medicinal cannabis farm in Oregon with her beau James Driskill.  

    She went on: ‘To me real medicine is what comes from the earth. I think people trust vaccines because the doctor says it is safe, I used to.’

    Chloe, who has no medical nor scientific qualifications, claimed that she’s ‘done research’ and now believes vaccines aren’t safe. 

    ‘If I had a chance to take herbs and plants as a baby rather than have toxins injected into me I would have done that,’ she insisted.    

    Vaccinations are vital to reducing the spread of preventable diseases, and any suggestion otherwise flies in the face of science and the advice of medical experts around the globe.

    Covid-19 can cause serious illness, ongoing health problems and even death.  

    The coronavirus vaccine is a safe and vital measure being taken to protect the community from the spread of the virus.

    The vaccines being rolled out in Australia and across the world are designed to ensure that even if you do contract Covid, you won’t get seriously ill.
