Scams and false information
The government has launched the SHARE checklist to tackle the spread of false information about coronavirus and vaccinations.
Recently there has been a lot of false information about coronavirus and the new vaccines designed to tackle it, and it’s not always easy to spot. The SHARE checklist is an easy tool to pass on to people in your community to help them know what to look out for before they like, comment or share information they come across online.
If you are looking for information on vaccination safety, please see the NHS guide on why vaccination is safe and important.
The independent fact-checker Full Fact is also working to fact-check and correct misinformation about vaccines and coronavirus and regularly updates its website to tackle the latest false information.
