Finally, Facebook unveiled plans to make vaccination trends, like a wave of intent to get vaccinated without any fear or hesitancy. It wants to make sure to remove the worries out of people’s minds and to spread positivity that it’s safe and easy to get vaccinated through your go-to platform “Facebook”. You will also experience updates, data insights on vaccine attitudes on its map, and dashboard, available on Facebook’s “Data for Good” dashboard. 

It’s not only going to help people all around the world. But even journalists, aid, and health-organizations, public officials will be able to track how vaccine information is spread on social media through CrowdTangle’s COVID-19 Live Displays.
Recently, USA Today recorded about 21 percent of people in the US have received at least one vaccine shot, and around 11 percent are fully vaccinated.
