Informed Consent - Irrelevant, Inappropriate Spam



irrelevant or inappropriate messages sent on the internet to a large number of recipients.

Following on from 'Are Nurses Conspiracy Theorists?', which contained a video of nurses who gathered at a town hall in Minnesota to air their views about the safety and efficacy of the vaccine, I now have to report that Facebook have deemed that the 1 hour plus presentation is deemed to be going against Facebook's "community standards". (Fig 1)

It seems a bizarre move by the social media giant given that they are, allegedly, all about correct information being disseminated on their platform. What can be more 'on the ball' than nurses working the front lines in hospitals? Or are Facebook suggesting they are 'tin-foil hat' wearers?

If you've not seen the video yet, then I highly recommend it.

Today, I share another video. It was posted by Instagram user, kaitlinjaramillo, and features two women who show us all the patient information leaflet that accompanies the current Covid vaccines. Obviously, one cannot take a video at face value, so I did some digging into this.

It appears it's not the first video to hit social media regarding the, for want of a better word, "lack" of information being handed out to pharmacists and, indeed patients.

The reasoning behind this "lack" of information is equally baffling.

Here's the video:

According to Truthmeter, an apparent fact-finding website, patient inserts on vaccines are intentionally left blank because data is constantly changing. Instead, the blank pages offer the reader a QR code and a website on which the latest vaccine information is published.

This, at first glance, appears all well and good, however, you can only access the website if you are  a Healthcare Professional in the US. Patient's, it appears, cannot access what is, in essence, theirs. (Fig 2)

So, with Facebook, seemingly, cautioning people who post access to information regarding the vaccine, and Janssen, a pharmaceutical company, only allowing healthcare professionals access to this information, where does that leave the consumer?

It appears Janssen will only allow healthcare professionals access, this includes nurses who, according to the definition of the word 'Spam' sees Facebook flagging such posts because they are "irrelevant or inappropriate" (Fig 3)

What's more "irrelevant or inappropriate", access to patient safety information or no access to patient safety information?

These are the times we are living in, folks!
