Married At First Sight star Joanne Todd has insisted she's not an anti-vaxxer, despite recently losing her job as a barber for refusing to get the Covid-19 vaccine.

In an interview with Yahoo! Lifestyle on Friday, the 40-year-old maintained she's not against getting the vaccine, but wants to 'wait a little longer'.

Furthermore, Jo insisted that a video she shared to Instagram informing her clients that she wouldn't be returning to the salon had been 'blown way out of proportion'.

She said that while she's not opposed to the Covid vaccine, she does believe that people who choose not to get vaccinated are being treated 'unfairly'.

'I want people to know that I am not anti-vax at all. I do think it should be a choice,' she explained.

'I also think it's unfair how the unvaccinated are being treated for their own rights to not choose to get the vaccine.

'I just believe that everyone should have a choice with their own bodies and not come with rules.'

Jo - who has since set up a home salon - said she'll happily 'cut the unvaccinated and the vaccinated', insisting she 'won't discriminate'. 

'I'm not saying I'll never get a vaccine. I am just choosing to wait a little longer,' she added.

Jo was relentlessly mocked on social media after revealing she lost her job for refusing the Covid-19 vaccine.

While there was the usual chorus of 'good for you' and 'stand up for your rights' from anti-vaxxers, other Aussies said they had 'no sympathy' for the MAFS star.

She was labelled foolish for choosing to walk away from her job of 12 years because of her stubbornness, with some fans saying they were unfollowing her on Instagram.

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

The vaccine makes you significantly less likely to become seriously ill with Covid, and also reduces the likelihood of transmission.

In response to Jo saying she'd lost her job for refusing the vaccine, one fan asked her bluntly: 'Could you not just get vaccinated?'

Others said she'd 'made her choice' and had to deal with the consequences, which for unvaccinated staff in the hair and beauty industry means not being able to work.

'Zero sympathy. She still gets a choice and she's made her choice - she wasn't fired,' one user commented on The Wash's Instagram account.
