Vaccine Misinformation Policy: YouTube Community Guidelines

Health authorities like the World Health Organization have given clear medical guidance on currently administered vaccines that are approved and confirmed to be safe and effective. Content that includes false statements about vaccine safety, efficacy, or ingredients — and poses a serious risk of egregious harm by spreading medical misinformation — is not allowed on YouTube, and can result in a Community Guidelines strike or other consequences for your channel. In this video, we’ll walk through specific, vaccine-related examples that we do not allow on YouTube and provide more information on this policy.

True or false?

Telling your viewers

that vaccines do not reduce risk
of contracting illness can result in

your channel receiving
a strike or being terminated.

The answer is true.

Health authorities

like the World Health Organization
have given clear medical guidance

on the safety, efficacy,
and ingredients of approved vaccines.

Content that contradicts this guidance
and poses a serious risk of egregious harm

by spreading medical
misinformation is not allowed on YouTube

and can result
in a Community Guidelines strike

or other consequences for your channel.

Let’s take a closer look
at how this policy will be enforced.

Content that includes false
statements about vaccine safety, efficacy

or ingredients will be removed from YouTube.

This means, content alleging
that vaccines cause chronic health effects

claims that vaccines do not reduce
transmission or contraction of disease

or content that misrepresents the substances
contained in vaccines is not allowed

on YouTube.

As with all of our community guidelines,
context is very important.

If you want to post content
on vaccine safety, efficacy, or ingredients

for educational, documentary,
scientific, or artistic purposes

sometimes referred to as EDSA

be sure to provide enough information
so viewers understand the context.

To help you understand this policy, here’s
a list of specific vaccine-related examples

that we do not allow on YouTube.

We don’t allow claims
that vaccines cause autism

are part of a depopulation agenda

cause chronic health effects,
such as infertility or cancer

do not reduce the risk of contracting illness

contain substances
that are not on the vaccine ingredient list

such as biological matter from fetuses

contain substances,
such as microchips meant to track

or identify those who’ve received them

or claims that vaccines
alter a persons genetic makeup.

YouTube also believes people should
be able to share their own experiences

including personal
experiences with vaccinations.

This means we may make exceptions
for content in which creators describe

first-hand experiences
from themselves or their family.

At the same time,
we recognize there’s a difference

between sharing personal experiences
and spreading misinformation about vaccines.

To address this balance

we allow creators to upload their personal
stories about their vaccination experiences

but we will remove content or channels
if they include other policy violations

or demonstrate a pattern
of promoting vaccine misinformation.

The safety of our creators, viewers,
and partners is our highest priority.

We look to each of you to help
us protect this unique and vibrant community.

So it’s important you understand our
Community Guidelines and the role they play

in our shared responsibility
to keep YouTube safe.
