Covid vaccine: Bachelor star sarcastically announces her ‘pap smear’

Bachelor star sarcastically announces her ‘pap smear’ as she blasts Aussies who proudly share their vaccination status – then takes a swipe at Abbie Chatfield


A glamorous lawyer who once appeared on The Bachelor has shared a sarcastic post on Instagram criticising Aussies who promote the fact they’ve had the Covid-19 vaccine.

Laura-Ann Rullo, who starred on Matty J’s season of the popular dating show in 2017, posted an update about getting a ‘pap smear’ on her private account on Sunday.

She compared advertising her cervical screening to people posting on social media about getting the jab.

Laura-Ann captioned a selfie: ‘IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Hi everyone, on 15 November 2021 at 10am I have my pap smear appointment.

‘Given that a lot of people are prancing around releasing their private medical information and announcing their V status like having purchased a new Chanel handbag, “I got Chanel”, “I got Gucci”, I thought it’s important that you know this.’

She added the hashtag #HoldTheLine, which appears to have several meanings including opposition to vaccination.

Advocate: She also took a swipe at Abbie Chatfield (pictured), a fellow Bachelor alum who has been encouraging Aussies to protect themselves and the community by getting vaccinated

Laura-Ann’s followers thought her post was hilarious and one dared her to ‘tag Abbie Chatfield’.

Abbie, who was the runner-up on the 2019 season of The Bachelor, is an outspoken advocate for the vaccine and has been encouraging Aussies to protect themselves and the community by getting the jab.

‘She’s a peasant. I feel violently ill hearing her name,’ Laura-Ann replied.

She added in subsequent comments: ‘I used to like her. I had to stop following her. She doesn’t know the power of her voice and I am not okay with that.’

Abbie, 26, is known for her confrontational approach to dealing with anti-vaxxers on social media.

Her messaging includes providing commentary on the abusive messages and/or comments she receives from anti-vax trolls. 

However, her advocacy also includes in-depth interviews with health experts about coronavirus and the vaccine, which she hopes will counter online misinformation.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Abbie for comment.
