Facebook rejects responsibility for COVID-19 misinformation

Facebook negated the responsibility for the United States failing to meet 70% vaccination goal by July 4 saying the data shows the majority of its users have been or want to be vaccinated against the COVID-19.

"The data shows that 85% of Facebook users in the US have been or want to be vaccinated against COVID-19. President Biden’s goal was for 70% of Americans to be vaccinated by July 4. Facebook is not the reason this goal was missed," Facebook said in a corporate blog post by Vice President Guy Rosen.

The statement comes after the White House urged the platform to put more effort into fighting COVID-19 misinformation that is "killing people."
