Facebook Pushes COVID-19 Vaccine Eligibility Notifications Across the US

Facebook is rolling out notifications to alert all users about vaccine eligibility in their state.

The social media giant has partnered with Boston Children’s Hospital Vaccine Finder to show users what healthcare providers are offering the vaccinations.

The company says the alerts will be found at the top of news feeds now that vaccination appointments are open to more age groups.

Facebook has been showing vaccine notifications to users 65 and older since February.

West Virginia’s Health Department says it received increases in vaccine registrations following Facebook’s decision to run state-based notifications there.
