Mark Zuckerberg Announces Facebook’s Plans to Help Get People Vaccinated Against COVID-19

Press release:

To do this, we’re helping people learn more about COVID-19 vaccines and find out when and where they can get one through our apps. Some of the ways we are doing this:

  • A tool to connect people to information about where and when to get a COVID-19 vaccine

  • Expanding our COVID-19 Information Center to Instagram

  • Expanding official WhatsApp chatbots on COVID-19 to get people registered for vaccinations with health authorities and governments

  • Adding labels on posts about COVID-19 vaccines to show additional information from the World Health Organization

  • Making real-time aggregate trends in COVID-19 vaccinations, intent to get vaccinated and reasons for hesitancy available to public officials to inform equitable vaccine rollout

By working closely with national and global health authorities and using our scale to reach people quickly, we’re doing our part to help people get credible information, get vaccinated and come back together safely.
