Leaked video shows Zuckerberg doubting vaccination
Project Veritas has posted a leaked video showing Facebook owner Mark Zuckerberg contradicting his own policy of vaccination. But, since Zuckerberg made his statement “behind the scenes,” no one will block his account on social networks.
“I share some caution on this [vaccine] because we don’t know the long-term side effects of basically modifying people’s DNA and RNA,” Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg can be heard saying.

However, on February 8th, Facebook announced a new wave of user bans for posts containing false claims about Covid-19.
“Today, we are expanding our efforts to remove false claims on Facebook and Instagram about COVID-19, COVID-19 vaccines and vaccines in general during the pandemic. Since December, we’ve removed false claims about COVID-19 vaccines that have been debunked by public health experts. Today, following consultations with leading health organizations, including the World Health Organization (WHO), we are expanding the list of false claims we will remove to include additional debunked claims about the coronavirus and vaccines. This includes claims such as: COVID-19 is man-made or manufactured, Vaccines are not effective at preventing the disease they are meant to protect against, It’s safer to get the disease than to get the vaccine, Vaccines are toxic, dangerous or cause autism.”
