Youtube noted on September 29, it will ban all “harmful vaccine content” from its platform, including claims that vaccines are ineffective in reducing disease transmission, raising concerns that the company is stepping up censorship of dissenting views.
âWe have regularly seen false claims about coronavirus vaccines turn into misinformation about vaccines in general, and we are now at a point where it is more important than ever to expand the work we started with COVID- 19 to other vaccines. ” Youtube wrote in a blog post.
Now it is removing content that claims “approved vaccines are dangerous and cause chronic health effects, claim vaccines do not reduce disease transmission or contraction, or contain incorrect information about the substances in vaccines, “YouTube said on its blog, saying its policy will now apply to content that questions the effectiveness of all vaccines, not just those against COVID-19.
