Covid-19: Abbie Chatfield mocks anti-vaxxers who take ketamine

‘Did you do your research before taking that horse tranquiliser?’ The Bachelor’s Abbie Chatfield mocks anti-vaxxers who don’t want the Covid shot but still use ketamine

Abbie Chatfield has mocked twentysomethings who claim they are ‘worried’ about getting the Covid-19 vaccine but still take recreational drugs on the weekends.

The outspoken Bachelor star, 26, revealed on Instagram she knows people her own age who question the safety of TGA-approved vaccines while at the same time taking drugs like ketamine.

Ketamine is a powerful sedative with hallucinogenic effects. In addition to being a recreational drug, it is used to tranquilise horses.

Abbie wrote: ‘People who I know literally do ket are posting about the vaccine not being “safe” and to “do your research”.

‘Did you do your research on your supply chain before you took that horse tranquiliser?’

The two Covid-19 vaccines available in Australia, Pfizer and AstraZeneca, have been clinically tested and approved for use.

The common side effects are mild, and the chance of suffering a blood clot from the AstraZeneca shot is extremely rare. 

Young Aussies can get the AstraZeneca vaccine after a consultation with their GP.

But the official advice is to wait for the Pfizer jab, which is currently in short supply.

She has since become a popular influencer and podcast host, and is known for her feminist and sex-positive views.
