poll showing a third of the UK population could refuse a COVID-19 vaccine

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, responding to a Center For Countering Digital Hate poll showing a third of the UK population could refuse a COVID-19 vaccine, said “This poll lays bare just how dangerous disinformation online can be.

“The rapid spread of false information about vaccinations could literally be a question of life and death.

“Social media companies must ensure this content has no place on their platforms and Ministers must do more to promote the benefits of vaccines and counter the harmful, dangerous myths which surround them before a coronavirus vaccine becomes available.”
