Facebook Converts Headquarters Campus Into Vaccine Clinic

Facebook Converts Headquarters Campus Into Vaccine Clinic

Facebook Inc. announced Friday that it will convert part of its Menlo Park, California, headquarters into a vaccination clinic for impoverished communities.

The social media giant plans to offer transportation for residents seeking shots to get to and from Facebook’s campus. Ravenswood Family Health Center, based in the low-income East Palo Alto area, will administer the COVID-19 vaccines.

Facebook has continued to show key interest in the COVID-19 Vaccination after the company faced heavy criticism from researchers and law, makers for allowing vaccine misinformation to spread on its platforms. Facebook also issued a statement in March that it would expand the list of false health claims it would remove from all its social media platform.

According to the company spokesperson, Facebook employees will not be eligible for the vaccination programme.
