Mark Zuckerberg, the founder, and CEO of Facebook, Inc., announced that Facebook would help people get vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.
He stated that they are launching a global initiative to introduce Covid-19 vaccines to 50 million people worldwide. They have already delivered authoritative Covid-19 knowledge to over 2 billion people.
Mark informed about the three-fold plan for the vaccination campaign on Facebook:
Firstly, they are releasing a tool that will show users when and where they can get vaccinated and a link to schedule an appointment. This will be in the Covid Knowledge Center, which will be shown in people’s News Feeds. They have already seen people use Facebook to schedule vaccinations, making it possible for millions of more people to do so.
Secondly, they are taking the Covid Information Center to Instagram, where it will be prominently displayed.
And finally, they are collaborating with health officials and governments to help people register for vaccinations using WhatsApp chatbots.
The evidence indicates that the vaccines are both safe and successful. They’re the best chance for overcoming the virus and returning to normalcy. They are already provided authoritative COVID-19 information to over 2 billion people, and as access to COVID-19 vaccines grows, they will continue to do so.
To achieve this, they are using the apps to know about COVID-19 vaccines and determine when and where they can get one. Here are some of the ways to do it
A guide to help people find out where and when they should get the COVID-19 vaccine.
- Adding Instagram to the COVID-19 Information Center
- COVID-19 will see the expansion of official WhatsApp chatbots to help citizens register for vaccines with health authorities and governments.
- Adding labels to posts about COVID-19 vaccines to show additional World Health Organization information
- Providing public officials with real-time aggregate patterns in COVID-19 vaccinations, intent on getting vaccinated, and explanations for hesitancy to notify equal vaccine rollout.
Facebook is doing its part to help people get reliable information, get vaccinated, and come back together safely by working closely with national and global health authorities and leveraging our scale to reach people quickly.
Since its foundation in 2004, Facebook’s mission has inspired people to build communities and bring the world closer together. People use Facebook’s applications and technologies to communicate with friends and family, find communities, and develop businesses.
