Jennifer Aniston is fully vaccinated, but she's continuing to take COVID-19 very seriously.

In her cover story for the latest issue of InStyle, the actress disclosed that she's keeping her distance from any of her pals who refuse to get the vaccine — a confession that didn't sit well with some.

"There’s still a large group of people who are anti-vaxxers or just don’t listen to the facts. It’s a real shame," she stated in her interview. "I’ve just lost a few people in my weekly routine who have refused or did not disclose [their vaccination status], and it was unfortunate."

"It’s tricky because everyone is entitled to their own opinion — but a lot of opinions don’t feel based in anything except fear or propaganda," the Morning Show star noted.

Once her opinions made the rounds, some questioned her choices, but she doubled down on her stance.

The Emmy winner crafted a response when a fan asked, "If she's vaccinated she’s protected correct? Why be worried about unvaxxed around her?"

The brunette babe pointed out that an unvaccinated person could still "give" her COVID-19 if they have the rapidly spreading Delta variant.

"I may get slightly sick but I will not be admitted to a hospital and or die," she explained. "BUT I CAN give it to someone who does not have the vaccine and whose health is compromised (or has a previous existing condition) — and therefore I would put their lives at risk."

"THAT is why I worry," the Friends alum concluded. "We have to care about more than just ourselves here."

After her reply, she posted a message that read, "What doesn’t kill you mutates and tries again."

Ohio Department of Health Chief Medical Officer Bruce Vanderhoff, M.D. insisted that the new variant "is absolutely more contagious. That simply means it takes less of the virus to go from an infected person’s nose and mouth to another person’s nose and mouth."

He also disclosed that it's "more dangerous than" other variants, adding that data "from Canada and Scotland that show people infected with the Delta variant have a much higher likelihood of needing to be hospitalized."
