Government targets false vaccine information on social media
The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) has launched a new social media campaign to tackle false vaccine information shared amongst ethnic minority communities.
The campaign is fronted by trusted local community figures such as imams, pastors and clinicians in short, shareable videos which include simple tips on how to spot misinformation and what to do to stop its spread.
Access the resources
The key message is to check before you share, signposting to the NHS for the best source of information.
The assets are designed to be shared via Whatsapp and Facebook community groups, as well as Twitter, Youtube and Instagram, to tackle false information spread through private channels.
Changes to shielding advice
