Facebook Says It Will Take Down Posts Linking Vaccines To Autism
Facebook said Monday it will remove all posts, not just ads, that claim that vaccines cause autism, the social media company’s most aggressive step yet to combat antivaxxer claims.
Facebook said it made the decision to crack down on antivaxxer content after consulting with the World Health Organization, and it will last “for the duration of the Covid public health emergency.”
The social network also announced Monday it will take down posts asserting Covid-19 is man-made, that “vaccines are not effective at preventing the disease they are meant to protect against” as well as posts that say it’s safer to get the disease than get a vaccine.
