Facebook’s anti-vaxx efforts too little too late – Jo Stevens

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, responding to Facebook’s move to delete false vaccine claims, said:

“This is too little too late.

“For even one person to turn down the coronavirus vaccine because of anti-vaxx content is one too many.

“With the online harms legislation still yet to materialise – 18 months on -we’ve called for emergency legislation to protect people from this dangerous disinformation.

“Unfortunately this follows a pattern from Facebook – they are rarely proactive and almost always reactive after being publicly pressured to act.”
