With the latest information on COVID-19  vaccines being shipped, Facebook has planned to remove the wrong information on the vaccines, which has the positivity to undermine public health efforts.

Recommendation:

Facebook Announces New Messenger Branding & Releases New Messaging Features

According to Facebook:

Given the recent news that COVID-19 vaccines will soon be rolling out around the world, over the coming weeks we will start removing false claims about these vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts on Facebook and Instagram. This could include false claims about the safety, efficacy, ingredients or side effects of the vaccines.

Claims Assumed By Facebook

  • COVID-19 vaccines contain microchips or anything else which isn’t on the official vaccine ingredient list
  • Claims about possible dangers or risks that have been refuted by official health bodies
  • Conspiracy theories about COVID-19 vaccines – “like claims that specific populations are being used without their consent to testing the vaccine’s safety”.

In August, Facebook was charged for spreading misinformation, with the views of around 3.8 billion in five months on 2020

Facebook Said:

We will also continue to help people stay informed about these vaccines by promoting authoritative sources of information through our COVID-19 Information Center.
