Warning about ‘dangerous’ COVID vaccine misinformation | 7NEWS

7NEWS Australia published this video item, entitled “Warning about ‘dangerous’ COVID vaccine misinformation | 7NEWS” – below is their description.

NSW’s Chief Health Officer has asked parents of children, pregnant women and people in Aboriginal communities to be cautious and not engage in social media posts that are spreading rumours and misinformation about COVID vaccines.

“I would also say that I’m aware of the social media rumours and misinformation websites, particularly targeting parents of children, but also pregnant women and also our Aboriginal communities. Can I just urge everyone to go to a trusted source of information. Don’t read or engage in those social media posts. Talk to your GP, your pharmacist, or go online and look at the government websites. For parents, the National Centre for Immunisation Research has got a lot of information about COVID, its impact on children and also the vaccines. So please, use those trusted sources and do not engage in some of the misinformation that is just incredibly dangerous” – NSW Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant.
