Facebook has plans to reach billions of people with Covid-19 vaccine information.
Back in November, Facebook announced plans to provide users with authoritative information about the Covid-19 vaccines.
Furthering that initiative, Facebook users will be directed to their local health agency websites to receive information for the Covid-19 vaccination and their eligibility. The information will be available to users in the U.S. and will soon expand globally.
Facebook will be removing false claims on its platform related to COVID-19 and is working with the World Health Organization to do so.
Facebook and Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health have partnered to reach the communities where access to the vaccine is lower, such as Latinx and Black communities.
