YouTube bans all anti-vaccine content from platform

YouTube has banned all videos featuring anti-vaccine content.

The new rule prohibits videos from making false allegations about any vaccine – including that they do not reduce transmission – that they cause autism – or that they can track recipients.

The video sharing platform began banning videos last October for spreading unfounded claims the jab didn’t work or was dangerous.

The accounts of multiple prominent anti-vaxxers have also been banned.

YouTube has removed more than 130,000 videos since last year for sharing vaccine misinformation.
