"In the coming weeks", Facebook said, it will be labeling "all posts generally about COVID-19 vaccines", pointing users to its COVID-19 Information Center, and it will roll out "additional targeted labels about COVID-19 vaccine subtopics", as well.
The social network said it has already connected over 2 billion people to authoritative Covid-19 information.
"We are committed to supporting the government of Somalia to reach out to the most vulnerable groups and frontline workers to ensure that spread of the virus is contained, and that Somali people recover quickly from this pandemic and the country continues making progress towards peace and stability", Swan said.
Facebook has a new tool that shows you where you can receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Facebook users in the U.S. who visit this online information center will also have access to a new feature available in 17 languages that displays a map of nearby places that offer the COVID-19 vaccine when they search for a city. The locations are provided by VaccineFinder and contains the place's contact information, hours of operations and a link to book an appointment. Jurisdictions in Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, and South Africa have used the platform to disseminate information and support residents during vaccine launches.
Facebook said it's also partnering with health authorities and governments to get people registered for vaccinations through notifications on its messaging service WhatsApp.

Sharing data, however, isn't helpful if it isn't true.
"The data shows the vaccines are safe and they work".
Facebook, facing pressure to crack down on COVID-19 vaccine misinformation, previously announced it would remove false claims about COVID-19 vaccines.
"I'm looking forward to getting mine, and I hope you are too".
The company said it was labeling Facebook and Instagram posts that discuss the safety of COVID-19 vaccines with text saying the vaccines go through safety and effectiveness tests before approval.
The company says that this pop-up label will give people "context they need to make informed decisions about what to share".
