Facebook will take down any misleading posts related to the COVID-19 Vaccine. They have made this sure in a blog post.
Though Facebook had started this anti misinformation campaign the previous year, they expanded the list in order to make it more practical.
The Social Media Giant reported that it has been working on these crucial factors related to the COVID-19 Vaccine, such as:
- COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured
- Vaccines are not effective at preventing the disease they are meant to protect against
- It’s safer to get the disease than to get the vaccine
- Vaccines are toxic, dangerous or cause autism
Facebook also mentioned that ‘they are continuing to improve their search results’ so that whenever someone searches for ‘vaccine’ or ‘COVID-19 Vaccine’, they promote better and more accurate results.
However, these measures may also affect negatively up to certain extents for new research regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. Also, older posts from Health Organizations may also get removed.
Last but not the least, Facebook has also taken a number of other measures including $120M in ad credits for boosting and promoting health information related to the vaccine.

Things you should do before going out:
First of all, try staying inside the home and don’t go out if it’s not necessary but if your toilet paper runs out then while going out you must wear a musk, sanitize your hand, spend some time with your family and off you go to buy toilet paper. Please please for the love of God don’t remove your mask when you are outside and make sure the mask covering your mouth and nose don’t wear the mast on your head like a headband 😑 and don’t keep that mask swinging on your neck. Try staying away from people and a large gathering. Don’t touch your nose and eyes even if it is itchy.
