Facebook to Turn Menlo Park Headquarters Into COVID-19 Vaccination Site

Facebook announced on Friday that a portion of its Menlo Park headquarters would be converted into a vaccine center, joining the government’s initiative to accelerate the vaccination campaign in the United States.
In a blog post, Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg wrote that the organization is partnering with Ravenswood Family Health Centre for this project.

Earlier this year, the social media giant announced the introduction of a tool to educate users in the United States about when to get COVID-19 vaccines, as well as the addition of a COVID-19 awareness field to its photo-sharing platform, Instagram.

In an interview, Facebook’s Chief Product Officer Chris Cox said the company took viral false allegations “very seriously,” but added that there was “a large grey field of people who have questions… some of which some people would call disinformation and some of which other people would call skepticism.” “In the big grey field, the easiest thing to do is just turn up with authoritative facts in a constructive manner, be a part of the dialogue, and do so with health professionals,” he said.

The organization announced that it would mark Facebook and Instagram messages about the safety of COVID19 vaccines with text stating that the vaccines must pass
safety and efficacy testing before being approved. Since February, when it expanded its catalog of forbidden misleading statements about the coronavirus and vaccines, it has deleted an additional two million pieces of material from Facebook, according to the blog post.
