Would YOU cut off unvaccinated friends? Broadcaster Nana Akua insists she’s protecting herself

Broadcaster Nana Akua has been accused of ‘segregating’ those without the Covid vaccine after saying that it’s acceptable to cut off friends who refused to have the jab.

The 50-year-old GB News presenter had a heated clash with former Apprentice candidate Joanna Jarjue over whether or not it’s justifiable to end friendships with the unvaccinated on Good Morning Britain today.  

London-based journalist Nana, who is living with lupus, said she is ‘doing all she can to minimise transmission and ‘keep others safe’, also insisting that she ‘has to protect herself’ while living with an underlying health condition. 

But Joanna, from Leeds, feels society is ‘going down a really slippery slope’ by viewing those who refused the vaccine as ‘disease ridden’ – admitting she has no problem with a young healthy person deciding against having the jab. 

It comes after actress Jennifer Aniston last week admitted that she’s cut friends out of her life for refusing to have the vaccine.

Nana said: ‘I’m a single mum, I need to be well and look after my kid so I can’t afford to be ill. 

‘Secondly, I’m quite happy to take the jab for the people who cannot have the jab for medical reasons. That’s why I’m taking the vaccine, I’m protecting those people as well as myself. 

‘But for the people that have no decent reason, I had a friend who came out with some nonsense about a microchip and a vaccine – they had to go. That was the end.  I thought you had some sense in your head and have come out with that nonsense.’ 

Joanna said she could understand why Nana personally would be wary of the unvaccinated, but added that ‘as a society we are going down a really slippery slope, trying to segregate people and looking at unvaccinated people as disease-ridden’.

The TV personality said that those with the jab can still pass on the virus, but Nana went on to argue that the jab is all about 'minimising transmission'

She said she sees no issue with a ‘fit and healthy 27-year-old’ who chose not to be vaccinated, insisting that no friend should tell another person ‘specifically what medical procedures I should have’.  

The TV personality said that those with the jab can still pass on the virus, and that it’s ‘not as simple’ as believing those without the jab are ‘automatically plagued with some virus’.  

But Nana went on to argue that the jab is all about ‘minimising transmission’ and trying your best to protect others, even if you yourself may not be a high risk person. 

‘[I] do the best I can to make sure people are safe and want to make sure the people around me, in my home, do the same,’ Nana said. 

‘You are suggesting that it’s ridiculous I don’t want people around me unvaccinated, but you are not coming from a position.’ 

As Joanna stated to interrupt, Nana interjected: ‘Can I finish? You cannot respond to something you haven’t heard.

‘I have an underlying health condition, I have to protect myself, I have lupus, that could kill me if I catch that virus.  

‘What you’re making out as ridiculous is my life, and I’m not telling you what to say as a friend. I’m saying you would never be in my friend circle, because my friends take 100 per cent care of me, I take 100 per cent care of them in whatever way I can.’ 

The pair were joined by Dr Sarah Jarvis, who said that while the vaccine does not provide 100 per cent protection from the virus, it significantly reduce your chances of catching it and reduces chances of ending up in hospital.   

‘If you are doing absolutely everything else, if you are always social distancing, if you never go within six feet of people, you are very unlikely to pass the virus on,’ she said. ‘But the majority of people [who are refusing the jab] are young people who are going out to night clubs.’
