Vaccine Misinformation

Share this page

Wednesday 28 April 2021

The States of Guernsey is aware of anonymous literature being circulated on the Island that contains misinformation regarding the COVID-19 vaccination programme.

The States of Guernsey, in common with jurisdictions around the world, has been consistently guided by the latest information in respect of the safety and efficacy of vaccines and is disappointed that factually incorrect, and unattributed, literature is being shared locally.

We would strongly advise that anyone who has concerns about the vaccine uses evidence-based resources before they decide whether to accept the COVID-19 vaccine offer or not. If you are unsure as to whether an article you are reading has a good scientific base for the information you may find this information from the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention helpful:
