Sam Frost appears relaxed as she shoots scenes on the set of Home and Away

Sam Frost was hard at work on the set of Home and Away last Monday. 

The actress filmed scenes for the soap at Sydney’s Palm Beach, which stands in for the fictional suburb of Summer Bay. 

The 32-year-old looked relaxed and happy as she performed alongside her co-star, Luke Van Os.

Sam was dressed casually in a matching athletic midriff top and tights with a tropical pattern. 

She jogged along the sand, smiling widely, as she was followed by the crew and cameras. 

In later scenes, the former reality star donned blue denim shorts with frayed ends, along with a boho tank top.

Sam sat alongside Luke, the pair in an animated conversation as they read their lines. 

The former Bachelorette was back at work after her vaccine drama hit the headlines.  

In recent weeks, Sam backflipped on her previous anti-vax stance, revealing she will get vaccinated against Covid-19 but not until after Channel Seven’s ‘no jab, no job’ deadline.

The actress said she will be fully vaccinated by late February – about seven weeks after the network’s vaccine mandate for all presenters, cast and crew comes into effect on January 10.

Because Sam won’t be allowed on the Palm Beach set until she’s double vaxxed, her character Jasmine Delaney will be ‘written out temporarily’.  

The former Bachelorette explained she wasn’t able to get the jab sooner because of an unspecified ‘medical procedure booked in for January’.

She also insisted she wasn’t leaving the soap permanently and that she had the full support of Seven executives.

It comes after the Director of Production at Seven West Media, Andrew Backwell, sent an email to staff informing them the network ‘will only engage fully vaccinated presenters, cast and crew’.

Staff at Seven Productions, which includes Home and Away, will need to be double vaccinated from January 10 to continue work.

A Seven spokesperson said: ‘To provide the safest possible work environment for cast, crew and presenters, Seven Productions have made the decision to only engage those who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19, taking effect in January next year.

‘Seven strongly encourages vaccination to protect our people, their colleagues and their families.’  

The actress, who has played nurse Jasmine on Home and Away since 2017, had earlier called for less judgement towards unvaccinated Australians.

‘I was really hesitant about doing a video or even speaking up about this sort of thing, but I feel like it’s getting to a point now in the world where there’s a lot of segregation,’ she said in a video posted to Instagram.  

‘There’s a lot of harsh judgement and opinions being thrown around a lot and it’s taking its toll on my mental health for sure. 

‘And I know people around me are struggling – particularly if they’re on the side of they don’t want to get vaccinated, for whatever reason.

‘There are lots of different reasons why people are not getting vaccinated and it might be because of their medical history, their concerns, they might have family history, it could be religious reasons.’ 

Sam then said she hadn’t been vaccinated, but claimed she had spoken to her medical doctor as well as a psychologist about her decision; however, it’s understood she does not have a valid medical exemption.  

She added tearfully: ‘It’s a really hard time to be in society right now and you feel like you are less of a human and you feel like people judge you.’
