A hairdresser has banned Covid-vaccinated customers from her store after absurdly claiming they will infect others in her salon.
Yazmina Jade Adler bemused thousands across the world in 2019 after she said she rubbed menstrual blood on her face to relieve period pain as part of a ritual meditation.
Now, the Australian has made headlines again after her Gold Coast business announced it would enforce a controversial ban on those who have had a coronavirus jab, the Mirror reports.
Experts in the field say Yazmina's claims that vaccines can cause illness in unjabbed people are scientifically impossible because they contain no live virus or anything infectious which can pass between humans.
Ms Adler told 9News: "It doesn't really make sense, I guess a lot of people will question that.
"But it is like anything, like the disease or virus, it is spreading [jab particles] somehow and women are reporting side effects when they haven't had the vaccine."
On the salon's Instagram page on Monday, she announced the new rules and wrote: "We are not your hairdresser if you have had the Covid vax.
"The unknown health effects of the mRNA vaccine are not covered by our public liability insurance."
She said the policy would be re-evaluated in 2023 when clinical trials of the "experimental injection" are completed.
Apologising for any "inconvenience" to customers, she added: "The safety of our staff and existing clients is our priority"
But the decision didn't go down well with social media users.
One Facebook user said: "I find your business decision ludicrous!! I’m a hairdresser and if anything I’d rather my clients were vaccinated, but it’s a personal decision and I won’t discriminate!"
Another asked: "It's curious to read that so many people who are so vehemently standing up for their right to privacy and standing against a vaccine passport are also asking people to disclose their vaccination history at a hair salon not run by medical experts?"
Others pointed to the brave workers on the frontline: "So just to confirm that the essential health workers, first responders and those working the frontline in health that have to get this vaccine are not welcome in your salon?"
Associate professor Menno van Zelm from Monash University's Department of Immunology and Pathology agreed the claims were untrue andsaid there are 'no credible reports' that vaccinated people can make other people ill.
"For one, Covid-19 vaccines do not contain the virus nor any other infectious agent that is contagious," Dr van Zelm said in an email.
"Yes, the vaccine activates the immune system and can make the recipient feel unwell for 24 hours, but this does not affect bystanders."
