Facebook moves to start banning Ads that sends discouraging messages to the people about vaccines for COVID-19.

However, Ads advocating for or against legislation or government policies around vaccines which includes the coronavirus vaccine will still be allowed.

Facebook’s previous rules prohibited Ads that contained any misinformation or hoaxes as identified by health organizations. But allowed Ads opposing vaccines if they did not contain false claims.

Facebook has continued to develops its policies giving the continuous pressure from lawmakers and public health groups to crack down on anti-vaccine content and misinformation on its platform, even though the company believe users should be able to express personal anti-vaccine views

Although the company noted that even though the vaccines for covid-19 may not be available for some time, that the pandemic had highlighted the importance of preventative health behaviors.
