YouTube is tightening its policies on vaccine videos in an effort to fight misinformation and conspiracy theories.
The video-sharing platform announced a ban on misinformation around any vaccines approved by the World Health Organization or local health authorities that are currently being administered. YouTube defines as “misinformation” any content that claims approved vaccines “cause chronic health effects, claims that vaccines do not reduce transmission or contraction of disease, or contains misinformation on the substances contained in vaccines,” according to a blog post Wednesday.
