NRL WAG Tahlia Giumelli hits back at an anti-vaxxer who accused her of being a 'government paid influencer' after posting about the jab

NRL WAG and model Tahlia Giumelli hit back at a nasty anti-vaxxer on her Instagram stories on Thursday. 

Earlier this week, Tahlia, 29, revealed she received her second Covid-19 vaccine and was soon trolled for being a 'government paid influencer' promoting the vax.  

Tahlia, who is engaged to NRL star Tom Burgess, took aim at the troll and joked that she 'wishes' she was paid to spruik the vaccine.

The troll had replied to one of Tahlia's Instagram stories, where she said she was 36-hours post jab and was only suffering from a 'slight headache'.

'How about the long-term effects?' the troll wrote. 

'Oh wait, there is zero date on that because it's still going through clinical trials. #Govtpaidinfluencer we see through you boo,' they added, along with a kiss emoji.

Tahlia responded, writing: 'Was tossing [up] whether to post this but I'll be pretty clear.'

'I'm not bothered, I trust modern medicine and so do the other millions of other people.'

'Also not sponsored I bloody wish. I have bills to pay ya know,' she finished, adding a crying with laughter emoji. 

The troll also hit out at Tahlia when she posted about breast implants in a previous story. 

Tahlia revealed earlier this week she was fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

In a lengthy Instagram post, she said she hopes that by getting vaccinated it takes the pressure off the health care system and the health workers. 

'Whilst we are super excited for our freedoms, to hug our friends, visit our hairdresser, have weddings and parties, our health care workers will continue to work double shifts, miss events and parties with loved ones and continue to help us overcome covid plus everything else we still live with,' she wrote. 

'I hope this small act will make a big difference for them.'

She added: 'I hope this small act means so much more for the sake of my kids, providing them the chance to have some normal in their life.' 

Tahlia also encouraged her followers to speak to a doctor about being vaccinated, rather than listen to influencers online. 

'Speak to a medical professional, those that have spent hours, months and years studying and make an informed choice,' she wrote.
