Facebook COVID-19 Vaccination Campaign Is Out
A lot of Americans are liable to contact this Virus while others have contacted it. A post in an About Facebook blog was released stating that it will now be “helping people know more about Covid-19 Vaccines and find out when and where they can get one”.
The Facebook platform and the Boston Children’s Hospital have decided to partner together to launch a tool that helps users find the nearest location offering the Covid-19 Vaccine. You can get this tool in the Facebook Covid-19 information Center.
This tool will be available in 71 different languages which are really nice and it’s currently being made available in the US. Facebook will bring this amazing tool to other countries in the nearest future.
There’s has been a positive response towards the Facebook tool so with time millions of more people wouldn’t find it difficult to get Vaccines. The CEO, Mark Zuckerberg confirmed that in a post.
Facebook is also making endless efforts to fight against misinformation surrounding the Covid-19 Vaccines. It tends to add a sign/ label to any vaccine-related post which will redirect various users to be able to identify and differentiate information from the World Health Organization and fake updates.
The other Social Media Apps like Instagram and WhatsApp will also be getting more resources to help Americans get vaccinated. Instagram’s COVID-19 Information Center displays a prominent notification that encourages users to visit Information Center.
New stickers for Instagram stories that allows users identify that they’ve been vaccinated will be provided.
Facebook announced that the WhatsApp chatbot service will be “working hand in hand with the health authorities and government to get people registered for vaccinations”.Buenos Aires, Argentina plans on using WhatsApp as a medium to alert citizens when they’ve become eligible to receive the vaccine.
What Will Facebook’s Impact Be on Vaccinations?
For the fact that there are millions of users (of Facebook) across the globe, it’s really a huge influence. Now it’s left for the users to see the positivity in it or not. Though it seems like Facebook is trying to carry out its Civil Duty by encouraging Americans to take the Covid-19 Vaccine but will doubtful users listen to Facebook?
