Facebook bans all vaccine misinformation

Facebook has banned misinformation about all vaccines on its platform. The new guidelines apply to user-generated posts as well as paid ads, which were already banned from including such misinformation. Instagram users will face the same restrictions. The ban does not stop at Covid-related content and will also target misinformation including suggesting vaccines cause autism.

I'm not anti-vaccine and I'm not on Facebook so I don't know what is going on there, I only hear stories. That being said, I don't understand how we are insulting and censoring people who are skeptical of this COVID vaccine that has been rushed out and doesn't have long term testing. It seems totally logical to not want to get it until more testing has been done or it has been out for a while (years?). Plus, the White House and the CDC are saying that if you get the vaccine you STILL have to wear a mask and social distance, which means for the vast majority of the population, there is no reason to get the vaccine. Sad that we're so polarized (because of MSM and social media) that some average Joe who might not want to get this vaccine is being labeled as a vaccine conspiracy theorist.

Why do you have to "combat" people with bad opinions? Why can't we just talk anymore? Blocking and banning doesnt change their opinion it makes it harder to debate the issue.

The only thing that should be censored are illegal activities and calls to violence. The rest should be treated with more information. Not less with censorship

Censorship is real. Vaccine injury & death are real. Where there is risk there must be choice. And there should be LIABILITY, too, but y'all ain't ready for that conversation. Watch 1986theact.com

I reject the act of calling Anti-Vaxxers "activists" as it implies that their position is worthy of consideration (it isn't).

Shit, if they have to censor it, then I guess it really is true, which sucks because I wanted to get the vaccine.

Facebook was part of the criminal "conspiracy" to stop Trump by blocking content that was bad for Biden. https://time.com/5936036/secret-2020-election-campaign/

For decades we have been experimenting and developing vaccines. We're getting pretty good at it. Vaccine manufacturers normally TAKE ten years to develop new vaccines because they are allowed to, not because it takes that long. Most of the time required to release a new vaccine is efficacy studies. Since we have been creating safe vaccines for decades we know what causes problems and how to avoid them. Covid has brought this issue of taking ten years to create a vaccine to the forefront. It doesn't take that long anymore. It's safe, we just don't know how effective it is.
