Facebook CEO’s Statement on Vaccines Clashes With Platform’s New Policy

Last week, Facebook issued a new policy on content related to COVID-19 vaccines. It states: “The goal of this policy is to combat misinformation about vaccinations and diseases, which if believed could result in reduced vaccinations and harm public health and safety.”

Leaked footage shows Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg raising concerns last July about virus vaccines changing people’s DNA. According to his company’s new policy, Zuckerberg wouldn’t have been allowed to make such a claim, calling it misinformation.
